    Will try to produce photos to show this, but what I see is Georges face doubled as if caused by machine doubling but there is no doubling of any lettering, which makes me think the die was doubled when producing Georges head. Feel free to prove me wrong ( and instruct me at the same time )

    I'd say machine doubling just because it seems flattened instead of actually doubled

    MD can affect any or part of the letters, numbers or design. Yours is classic MD. It's flat and shelf like and profiles get this affect a lot.

    Educational: As you asked. The coin displays typical flattened profile for MD, as already stated above. Sometimes it affects whole coin other times it could be just a part of a device, like the profile in your case

    It amazes me what metal and machines can do to each other

    Don't think I've heard of Hub Doubling - is that the real deal ?

    A doubled die (hub doubling) is caused by a misalignment or a mismatch between a working hub and a working die.

    so the hub is "printed" on the die so to speak

    Is the die made all at once or are the elements added separately ? such as first the head then the lettering ( I'm talking about the making of the die not the coin ) ( that didn't make sense , I assume the die is made in one stroke )
