So I bought a new USB microscope to get some decent pics......

So you think this is machine/strike/mechanical doubling? Because it isn't...
The pictures are just sub-par.
Check this website, and if you find a die match of your coin to this, then it'll help us reach a better conclusion.
There is information regarding doubling that is similar to what you describe. I am not saying your coin has doubling because I cannot tell from the pictures. In addition, I find this "doubling" to be uninteresting and I don't understand why people care about them. Give me a 1971 DDO-1 any day.
That being said, try these sites:

The images don't prove anything.
Doubling INCREASES the size of devices!!!
That's what she said...
You probably don't have much exposure flexibility with your USB scope. If you can, add some diffusion to the lights. That will spread out the light over the coin and make the overall image brighter and highlights darker. Maybe the scope will then turn down the exposure a bit as well.
You really need to post the date and mint.
Which one ?
What year ?
Yes it is, Rick!
Sorry for the roughish pictures.....I tried my best......taking pictures of coins is extremely difficult in my personal opinion!!!
And I'd rather not say until it gets back from being viewed/attributed/photographed in hand by Mr. Ken Potter himself, at our big metro Detroit coin show here at the end of this month. (Just recently had a lengthy conversation with him on the phone!)
Let's just say it is predicted to bring many thousands of dollars at auction....(don't wanna ruin the numismatic surprise so to speak) until it hits the auction block sometime in 2020.
You mean this show .
I also sit and know Mr potter .
I didn't miss the show did I?!?
I've lived in michigan, my 56 years of life .
Known Mr. potter for 15 years, or so .
I work the coneca table with him and the rest of the gang .
To many names to list .
See you in 2 weeks, my brother!
You don't even want to tell us the date? Very strange indeed.
.. Good one. So funny!
I hope you don't create a scene when Rick might tell you different than what you believe.
