I just don't seem to understand and cannot find any good info showing what a split seriff is exactly on a double die vs Machine Doubling not having them

Make sure that when you are looking at "doubling" that the devices are the same size as what is doubled or the devices are enlarged. Machine Doubling to me looks like a snail trail because it is literally dragged across the coin almost which takes away from the device's overall size.

Actually split serifs are noted on RPMs.

Note the lighter arrows.
On doubled dies, they are called notching from where the devices don't line up.
The wider the spread of the hubbing, larger the notches are:

Note on the two 5 spreads on this doubled die? That is probably the widest spread making a huge notch on those devices. On this one all the devices are show notches:

That is the extreme notch. But when the spread of the hubbing is a lot less, then were see what is often referred to as notching:

Note the 'E' on the next set of images:

Again note that the spread of the hubbing, creates these.

On Machine Doubling this is usually not seen:



Probably the only reason you might see this if the MD pushed the metal around a corner of a device.
(sorry no image that I have for this)
Does this help?

One key feature on split serifs on doubled dies is that the split goes all the way down to the field, If you see something like a split on Machine Doubling it only goes down to the upper surface of the secondary image.
