Hi there! I appreciate any possible info on this coin. Appears to be some doubling on some of the letters on obverse.. but I'm not great at deciding whether it's MD or doubling. Thanks in advance!

There really is very little doubling and it's die deterioration doubling, not MD or OD. The dies are tapered to they release from the planchet, so the relief design is larger at the bottom than the top. When you take 40X or 50X micro shot, ALL letters look "doubled" because of the taper.
