1881s Morgan Double Die


This is another common date but something interesting about this coin - is this double die?

I have heard of the "hot lips", those Morgan dollars that were struck at the New Orleans Mint in 1888 with a doubled die obverse that produced significant doubling of Miss Liberty’s lips, nose and chin and the other is the 1901 Double Die Reverse but for this 1881s Morgan, the date on "1881" looks like a double die


What is exciting to that is that this Morgan coin is in GEM condition, absolutely beautiful, sharp details with rich lustre

 




From the first picture below even without close up, you can actually see the "double effect" on the date 1881
