I'm sorry but what do you mean by devices?

Devices = all the other lettering and images on both sides of the coin. I agree we should see close-ups of at least USofA and ONE CENT.

Many of these small cents exhibit what is known as Longagre doubling - a design element included in most of James Longacre's engravings. That could be what we're seeing here although MD is a possibility. I hope others can shed some light on this, but in my opinion these "shelves" were engraved into the die. I base this on the fact that they are showing up fairly uniformly across most of the devices.

Edit:
The date, being hand-punched into the die rather than a part of the obverse design, probably is exhibiting MD. Remember that I am not a FE expert!
