Does this have doubling on the obverse and reverse or possibly something else. When it comes to double strikes if the 2nd isn't much off center would it barely be noticeable?

Method of picture taking is simple, but highly effective in this case.

Most often, a second strike over the first is in perfect registration over the first, and there is no sign of doubling. If this is the case, it would not even be perceived to be an error.

Modern proof collector coins are often deliberately double struck, to bring up all of the design detail.

You do not have a doubled die coin . but I must say it has been viciously cleaned and or dragged across a sidewalk on both sides . To add to it's misery your coin is moderately worn .

Well there are several things to look for on different years, doubled dies, RPM, OMM (over mintmarks) Type 2 reverse on business strikes, Bugs bunny clashes just to name a few. If you would like images of these items I could include them.

You know, the blue or brown three fold page albums where coins go and never see the light of day again?

Get a nice chance to tone in them:
