I think you have some lighting issues that make it impossible to attribute anything. I use the CONECA Master Listings for my attributions. There are three listings for the 68D DDO's, you can also see some photos in James Wiles 1997 Kennedy half dollar Book.

I have spent years trying to find and confirm these three 68D DDO's for my collection. Attached are some photos of the three, also showing some markers. All three are listed as triple dies.
The 68D DDO-001 with the high D marker, the 68D DDO-002 with the curved die scratch to the right of the upper mintmark, and the 68D DDO-003 with the north-south die scratches right of the upper mintmark.
If you can take some better photos of the reverse I might be able to help you with an attribution. I don't see any doubling in any of your photos.

The first one looks like a very nice, un-listed DDO. The second one looks like Machine Doubling. But none are a match for the FS-101 location.

Nice DDO on the the TDO Atrox001.

I'm confessed.

Atrox001 (Larry Nienaber) posted photographs of all 1968-D Kennedy half dollar DDOs recognized by CONECA (first two photos are DDO-001, the middle two photos are the DDO-002 and the last two photos are the DDO-003).

Coop post three pictures, one from PCGS and number 2 & 3 allegedly from Sarge50 (I believe that the last two photos were from Atrox001). The first picture, labeled from PCGS looks like it is a blow up of the first coin listed in Coin Facts, an MS66 example. The only problem using a photo from PCGS for attributing varieties is it might not be the right critter as it is in this case.

The 1968-D Kennedy in MS66 listed on Coin Facts is my coin, http://images.PCGS.com/trueview/11694146 and it has been sent to James Wiles for attribution, it received the dreaded "Too minor to list" so it shouldn't be utilized to verify what a FS-101 looks like, maybe what a FS-101 doesn't look like.

I spent a lot of time and effort over the years to find and verify the three 68D DDO Kennedy half dollars in the CONECA Master Listings, especially with the help of James Wiles and tacloulgh from this forum. I wanted to use this post as an opportunity to show what I had found. I have no idea what coop is trying to say with his last post, but I think his information is misleading.

This is a 1971 Kennedy 1/2 that falls into this category of DDR I believe, thank you in advance for your help community!

This is another one in my collection of Kennedy 1/2 with the same DD? It is a 1967! I hope this does not turn out to be Mechanical Doubling?

Sarge50...I think all of the doubling in your photos would be MDD (Machine Damage Doubling).
