    It seems to me to be a DD because its adding to the devices and has serifs. Could I get a couple opinions. The pics. Are taken through my microscope at 10 × magnification but I took a couple regular. The coin has a real square feel to it

    Your coin is a proof struck coin and i see no listings of a DDO for that year and mintmark. I looks like it may be machine doubling. Good photos.

    The font used on the Lincoln cent does not incorporate serifs in the letters.

    Split serifs on a true doubled die would look like this.

    Keep in mind .
    The date and the mint-mark, make that a rare die pair .

    I didn't know it was a proof struck coin. I just said its very squared like all the edges are sharper than other coins

    Welcome to Coin Talk. IMO it looks like Mechanical Doubling. This site will teach you how to identify MD and DDD (Die Deterioration Doubling): http://doubleddie.com/144801.html

    Photo of the entire reverse would be appreciated. It would make it easier to see what you have. Thank you.

    Photos in #14- appear to be machine doubling, the area of the edge seem scalloped .

    The edge of the OP's coin is flat with a thin lip way out at the outer edge of the coin.
