In 2007 the United States Mint began issuing a series of $1 coins to honor the Presidents of the United States. Each year four $1 coins will be issued with the first $1 coin issued for George Washington and the remaining dollars to be issued in the order in which the President served in office.
The obverse of each $1 coin depicts a portrait of the President being honored. The target area for doubled dies on the obverse will be the central area of the portrait and will vary with each President. The reverse of all of the Presidential dollars in the series features the Statue of Liberty. The target area for doubled dies on the reverse is the intersection of the 2nd ray (clockwise) coming from Liberty's head and the outstretched right arm. While the entire obverse and reverse should be examined carefully for doubling, the target area is where you are most likely going to find the doubled die doubling.

In all of the following listings the person listed as "Submitted By" is the person who sent the coin for listing in the Wexler Doubled Die Files. It is not necessarily the person who originally discovered the variety.
