Hey guys!

It's my first post here.

For a couple of years, I just collected interesting coins, such as S-mint mark coins, silver dimes, etc. I never thought I came across any mint error coins
.
But when I was looking though my old coins, I happened to look very closely at a 1976 Half Dollar that I had for some time, and noticed that it had doubling on the back! (not entirely sure about the front)

So, what do you guys think? Is this legitimate doubling, or is it something else? Eager for answers here

I also have a bunch that look similar to this, I had someone in a coin shop once tell me that even if it was doubling, it wasn't far enough off to be considered anything of value. But I've also heard that it's only worth what someone else is willing to pay for it. I'm still pretty new at the whole coin collecting thing and I'm really just posting here so that I can see what everyone else says about it. Welcome to the community, the seniors here have my respect and from what I can tell they are very knowledgeable.

It looks like DDD(die deterioration doubling) to me but more experienced people will let you know for sure

STATES and by clocktower is MD, shelf-like, same direction. EPUBUNUM, now is a mess. It is MD, the divides are normal width, just reduced or twisted. Die deterioration is starting but no th e key problem.
