Hello,

My research into this is sketchy at best. Does MD occur in coins from this era? Is it a double strike or maybe post damage? Is it a DDR? I dunno. I'm secretly hoping its a DDR but my hands on experience in "turn-of-the-century coins" is nill, until recently...

We need a full image of both sides of the coin.
But from what I can see it looks like someone has already done some polishing on the coin.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

Looks MD to me and looks like someone has polished it.

Typical Longacre shelf doubling, it looks like. Coin is shot.

The glossy design elements and the lack of same in the fields and between the design elements is a sure sign of hand polishing that drastically reduces the numismatic value.

Thanks for the info about Longacre! Yes, the coin looks like it was polished. I knew the coin was worthless but I couldn't figure out the doubling. I guess I didn't search hard enough. I've noted everyones comments and in the future I will post more appropriate images. Thanks again for the lesson!
