The Cherrypickers' Guide To Rare Die Varieties by Bill Fivaz and J.T. Stanton best sums up this page. They titled it "Know the PUP's." "PUP's" as defined in the Cherrypickers' Book stands for Pick Up Point---areas most prone to exhibit doubling (Doubled dies, Repunched Mint Marks, Over Mint Marks, Misplaced Dates and Repunched Dates) Included in this listing is a few of my own.
