Because of the extremely limited number of Standing Liberty Quarter doubled die varieties, they will all be illustrated on this single page.  If the list should ever expand significantly, the varieties will be assigned to pages based on their date and mint mark as is done with other denominations and series.

1930 25¢ WMDO-001          Master Die Doubling

Description:  Class VI extra thickness shows on the stars, the olive branch, the 19 in the date, and slightly on the letters of LIBERTY.  The 3 in the date is strongly doubled, most likely the result of re-engraving of that digit on the master die.

Die Markers:  Obverse:  Die markers will vary on the different working dies.  Reverse:  Die markers will vary on the different working dies.  The reverses should show the master die doubling known for this date.

Submitted By:  Barry A. Kittoe

Cross References:  CONECA: MD-1-O-VI+VII

Comments:  Because the doubling was on the master die, it was transferred to all working hubs and working dies produced that year for the Standing Liberty quarters.  As such, it can be seen to some extent on all 1930 dated quarters.  The amount of doubling visible may vary slightly from coin to coin due to working hub wear, working die wear, and wear on the coins themselves.

Description:  A close Class II spread towards the center shows on some of the letters of QUARTER DOLLAR.  The three stars under the eagle show tripled left points.

Die Markers:  Obverse:  Die markers will vary on the different working dies.  The obverses should show the obverse master die doubling known for this date.  Reverse:  Die markers will vary on the different working dies.
