Hi everyone. Going through a bulk wheat cents and came across what seems to be DD on the date of this 1958. Still pretty new to this but I believe I do see split serifs. Am I correct?
Thanks for the help!

This is MD. The flat and shelflike doubling give it away. But the one easy tell tale sign on this coin is how thin the top of the 9 was made during the doubling as compared to the rest of the 9's parts. An actual doubled die has been engraved twice with the same design so the devices are made thicker, not thinner.

On a doubled die, the affected area is not a reduction of the device. It is caused by the machine right after the strike. The machine die movement damaged the coin:

Just like this coin:

On a doubled die, the devices are enlarged on the die and they will be larger than normal size.

Note these devices. These are doubled on the die, not caused by the machine.

While the date has some doubling, the other devices show strong doubling. Your coin was a normal strike, the the Machine Doubling damaged it like a kick in the shins. This happens often on coin, even on doubled die, they can be affected.

Note the yellow arrows. These are all doubled dies, but the arrows point to where the MD happened on these coins. There are probably more of the 1969-S DDO with MD than the normal ones for that year. (MD was common on 1968-1972 cents)
