There are 8 classes of doubled dies listed below:
Double Die Classification:
- Class I: Die being re-hubbed is rotated near the center of the die from the position it was in during the original Hubbing.
- Class II: Design features on the Die/Hub become distorted or miss-shaped during the annealing/tempering process causing the images to no longer align properly when being re-hubbed.
- Class III: When working hubs with different designs features are used to Hub a Die.
- Class IV: When a Die is moved off center in the Hubbing Press from the position it was in during the initial Hubbing.
- Class V: When a Die is pivoted around a point near the rim during the rehubbing process.
- Class VI: When a Hub is overused and the design features become thickened or flattened creating thick design features on the Working Dies.
- Class VII: When a Die being Hubbed is impressed with a normal hub and a then re-hubbed using a hub that has had its features changed or removed
- Class VIII: When the top of a Die being Hubbed is not parallel to that of the Hub.
