We need pictures of the entire coin, both sides as well.
From the pics you posted, it looks more like MD, or mechanical doubling.
But from the T it looks like MD.

Looks like an SMS coin. I would say it is MD because when they made these they would strike the coin multiple times.

I admit I had to look this one up (sms) the coin is sealed in a plastic coin folder with a blue tag sealed in the other side that says,
Security Rare Coins Inc.

USA 40% silver half brilliant Uncirculated.
This could be an SMS that was removed from the lens and sealed in a cellowrap by a third party vendor.
But I'm quite sure the doubling is MD and not a DD.
Well I took it to the coin show today and let a few dealers take a look at it. The verdict was.....Both it is MD/DDO. One of the dealers (John's Coins) out of billerica Ma. made an offer of $300 on the spot. I declined but he did tell me I should have it graded and slabbed asap. Now that I don't have a local certified pcgs dealer in the area i think i gonna have to submit it to anacs if i want to do so.
I would have sold it in a heartbeat. Any such small doubling , even if it isn't MD, would have a difficult time getting that price elsewhere. JMO.
