I believe it to be MD and DDD. Not a DDO. Just my opinion.

More of a circulation/vending machine/coin counters issue damaging the devices on the outside edge of the coin. Damage doesn't raise the value to a coin. A doubled die is seen as hub doubling when the die is created. Thus making the devices doubled and you can see a spread in the hub process that some years was multiple times and today on the single squeeze dies as only once. [green]Make sure to enlarge the images by clicking on them[/green
Older Multi-squeezed dies, doubled dies:

Note the doubled images on the motto? Can see the spread between the hub process between another hub step? Also note circulation wear didn't remove it.

Note on this one, the spread is not as much seen but the enlarging of the devices are all consistant, but on the devices you can see notching. A sure sign for a doubled die is the doubling by spread and notching on the corners.

Same on this one. Spread, notching and note even the date is affected. Note how all the motto is affected, not just the devices on the outside edge of the coin.

Note on this one the affected doubling is seen more on the '0' on the date area. There is still some spread on the motto. But why is this not like the other examples. Because hub doubling can affect different areas of the die differently. But examples from the same die will have all the same doubling on each die. Doubling on the 1972 cents dies 1-8 is a good case study. Each of these dies are different.

Sometimes so much that you have to look at each device to see if it is for sure that die.
So on your coin, I'm not seeing any of the hub doubled events happening on you coin. More of a damage device issue. We are here to educate, so I try in my posts to show what I see on your coin. I want you to see what I see, and what it tells me.
