Is this worth something?
Because I haven't seen any other 1971 pennies this doubled!

Not the best pictures but I am thinking Machine Doubling and not a premium coin.
I agree with Mooskter, if you could get better pictures we could be more sure.2 years ago

A wise man once told me the real value of a double die is when you can see it with the naked eye...so it should "jump out" at you. The answer is probably in the Cherrypicker's Guide.2 years ago
From a collectible stand point, worth keeping as it is a nice example. For resale, I'd have to agree that there's not much of a premium above a normal strike.
A machine strike not worth anything I have three rolls one all S . I have gone over all of them twice nothing just plain red cents. Which will be worth something 211 years past that date so another twenty years of ten!!2 years ago
Looks like Machine doubling to me as well but hard to tell. Check Cherry Pickers. Here is a good link for researching doubles:http://conecaonline.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/StrikeDoublingFlyer-1.pdf
Coneca is the guys for these. Good luck.

I've heard about "machine doubling' and apparently it's notorious with post-1982 zinc cents.2 years ago
Hard to tell from the pics, but I don't think so. There are no photos on the Variety Vista website to compare it to, and as of now, there are no DDRs known for this date Lincoln cent. You may want to reach out to Dr. James Wiles who curates that website; he'd be the man to ask if it is or isn't true die doubling. -Sam Gelberd, ANA Numismatic Educator: http://www.varietyvista.com/index.htm2 years ago
