    That looks like some impressive strike doubling to me, but not a doubled die, so not the variety you're looking for. I don't see notching on the E in CENT, and I don't see anything at all in NITED ST.

    I'm going to use this thread as a learning thread .
    If this was FS-801, the two beads would be doubled .
    Here's an example from coneca site .

    No doubling what so ever ..

    See the MD ridge on the inside rim?
    That would be a good indicator to think about the rest of the coin. You at least know the die shifted to get that ridge. And thus it would affect other elements.
