Who doesn't get bored with an 1884-O tho?

Alright, I guess it's time for y'all to break my heart.

What makes this coin special to me is it's the only time I looked through a loupe and actually gasped at a coin... before shouting out many colorful metaphors.

Well either I'm going to get my heart broken, or it's Christmas. There's no in-between here I think.

I read the Doubled Dies sticky thread. I see distinct lines of separation in the devices which gives me some hope. At this point I only know enough to know I need the pros' help to have a look.

A photo of the date too for position (normal) but I also can't determine if there's date doubling.

I'm not a "pro" compared to many on here, but I'd say it's a heartbreaker. It looks like strike doubling to me.
