I am almost certain I have found a DD on both the obverse and reverse... But I am also second guessing myself..I am NOT an expert! At one angle I clearly see DD.. I blink my eyes to refocus to get a clear view and its gone! I did manage to get a few pics.. But am I really that lucky to find the DD on both sides? I need a more expert opinion! And if so should I send this in to be graded?

I am no expert but the reverse shows to be MD, I'm not seeing any doubling on the obverse.

To speak to your question...it is not especially rare for a Doubled Die to show on both sides of a coin. Here is a list I compiled recently:

Machine Doubling, not a doubled die...devices reduced in size with shelflike doubling.

Yes thanks for the info.. I didnt realize there was a difference! I was under the impression DD was basically double stamped...

This is a common misconception. Here is an excellent resource:
