1995 Double Die Obverse Penny MS67 NGC or PCGS (P) Coin

The 1995 Doubled Die Obverse is a result of a Class V doubling, or "pivoted hub dubbling". Instead of the image being rotated with respect to the center of the coin, such as the 1955 doubled die, the image is pivoted around a "pivot point" on the die. The pivot point on the 1995 double die is close to the date. Thus, very little doubling can be seen on the date, whereas much doubling can be seen on the areas furthest from the date. Doubling can primarily be seen on LIBERTY and IN GOD. The 1995 Doubled Die is the last of its kind. Late in the 1990's the Philadelphia and Denver Mint began using a single hub technique. The single hub technique would only strike all dies once, therefore, eliminating the possibility of striking major doubled die coins. It is the most dramatic Doubled Die for all circulating coins from 1995 to date.
