Hello everyone, I'm new to this! I have a 1943 Lincoln steel penny and I noticed doubling on far right of the "943" and the "R" in the word Liberty. I'd really appreciate if someone input on this.

When you see movement of the devices towards the direction of the closest rim, that is die wear. That is the case with your coin. The steel planchets and the steel dies wear against the hardened dies more than the copper planchets. You can see the flow lines on the fields. On Hub doubling the devices are enlarged. The devices on your coin are normal sized, the die flow is moving towards the rim. If this were a doubled die, those devices would be enlarged because of the doubling hubbed onto the die, not because the die wear of the die. Thus the term: "Doubled Die." Here is an example of a doubled die compared with a normal die:

See if you can spot the doubled die and the normal coin? Now look at the image you posted again.
