Nice image. What's the value of the coin?

<$100 in fairly high grade. They are pretty common (relatively, by coin standards).

Welcome to the forum.
You have very good lighting. You show the salient details and the metal finish well. A bit of brushing to remove a couple of crumbs would top off the shot. Dead insects and watch mechanisms are particularly notorious for attracting lint.

Cleaning for coins is a general no-no, but light brushing is probably Ok. The problem is that the coin is not accessible. Nicer coins are commonly encapsulated in a plastic container and graded as to the quality. There is a layer of plastic between the camera and the coin.

That plastic causes no end to the problems with coin photography.

Wow! You shot through plastic. That makes it even more of a challenge. You really did excellent work.

very Nice work. I have never seen a coin with a douple stamp. Are they grabbed up fast by collectors?

Not really doubled struck. The die that is doing the striking has two impressions on it, so every coin that comes off of that die will have the doubled features.

Here is a double struck coin (with an indent from another planchet partially in the way when it was struck).
