    Those couple of photos aren't going to help. This looks like DDD and MD to me.
    For variety's you always need full size obverse and reverse photos, + a good clear photo of the mm placement.
    Is this a proof or is it a business strike?

    Take some time to get to know your scope. The devices don't reflect what a doubled die should look like, the doubling is flat and shelf like. (MD) Also see how the doubling is mostly between the letters and the rim? That is a sign of die deterioration.

    That's from the striking, it's not a doubled die.

    Microscopes are fun to fool around with, but we start seeing things that have little to no added value. Your photos seem to show machine doubling, so worthless doubling.
    Have fun but don't over strain your eyes. LOL And welcome to Coin Talk.

    Also @Daniel egleston you might benefit from my standard advice on photos.

    For the best results, you should post "in focus," FULL IMAGE photos (after you upload your photo, two buttons appear: Thumbnail and Full Image, click Full Image and your photo appears full size on your post and are easily enlarged by clicking on it). Photograph coins on neutral backgrounds like black, grey, or white. Crop out superfluous background so just the coin shows (you can use https://www.remove.bg for free), and post photos with correct orientation so members don't have to turn their computer in some awkward fashion to view it properly. While it isn’t always necessary, it is nice to show both the obverse and reverse, even if your question is just about one side. Members can often give more valuable information having both sides to evaluate. Add close ups of areas you have questions about and make your questions as definitive as possible so we know what you are asking for. And try to have the best lighting possible to show the most favorable photo of the coin. Hope this helps in the future. Good luck.

    Hello and welcome to Coin Talk @Daniel egleston I agree your coin has strike doubling! Here is a doubled chart that might help you in the future!
