I’m not seeing doubling.
There are too many nicks and dings in significant areas on the obverse and a finger print and spotting on the reverse to grade high MS
Your photos are very good but you need to post closeups of IGWT or point out the markers.
Can't tell from the photo but even if it looks very good it's not going to be
more than 64 or 65.
@Chopperhead please be aware that finding minor errors is not that common, and finding anything that you could sell for than $1 is a rare occurance. As others have said, just because it looks different doesn't mean it's an error. Coins can be damaged in innumerable ways once the enter circulation.
Best recommendation is trying to learn the minting process. That will help you determine actual errors from the 99% of the damaged coins.
Look at Wexlers site. Www.doubleddie.com

@Chopperhead You need to publish clear pictures of IGWT. Mimic these photos aiming for same size and clarity: https://www.coppercoins.com/lincoln/diestate.php?date=1968&die_id=1968s1do006&die_state=mds
The pictures you posted are very good...especially for a newbie. But I (we) need additional photos to confirm/attribute your coin. At this point, I'm at No DDO and a low MS coin. But if we can attribute your coin, you may have a $10 coin on hand. So post those pictures and let's see what you have.
@Kentucky posted, I only see some worn die strike errors.
A better close-up of IGWT from the OP has been requested at least 3 times by @Kevin Mader ...still waiting.
This coin is not a bonafide doubled die...yet...imo...Spark
There is something going on inside the bottom loop of the MM, and since it can’t be a plating blister, you’ll have to match it to known RPMs to be definitive.
Maybe a resident RPM expert can shed some light. Your coin is a AU58 Red...Spark
@Chopperhead for the additional photos. Unfortunately, it is not a DDO. Just a normal cent with some chatter on IGWT. Still a decent circulation cent, but no real premium. The hunt continues! Good luck!!
