I think everyone knows that I struggle with the DD's, But the letters on the reverse look a bit strange to me. They aren't flat shelf like with the MD that I'm used to. They appear to be rounded. Sorry about all the pics. I couldn't decide on which ones to use! It's most likely some sort of doubling and not a true DDO but I had to ask. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

It is definitely MD. You can tell because the size of the letters is reduced. I think the reason the MD is not flat is because of circulation wear. This is a tricky one and I'm not surprised that you questioned it.

Definitely an interesting one.
I think I would agree with Scurry, that it is MD.
BTW it would be a DDR not a DDO. The O stands for obverse, R for reverse.

I knew that, Why I put O instead of the R I have no idea! Thanks for the info.

The way to tell it is Machine Doubling? There are two letters that will help on your images. The 'O' on OF and the 'R' on DOLLAR. If you look at the shapes of these two devices, you will note those areas are reduced and not enlarged. Note the top loop on the 'O' is thinner than the lower loop because of the MD? Also the same issue with the 'R', the affected area on the center part of the R is being reduced by MD. While this is not as strong as the classic MD, it is still the same cause. After the strike the die movement damaged those devices.
