I just don't have the means to see the light doubling in the letters with my cheap LED microscope. But the doubling is in all the stars from the U in United to A in Half going clockwise, and the 9 stars in the shield. My question is since I don't have the means should I take to coin shop have them look at it?

This is from an aging die. Your coin is showing extreme die wear on the starts. This is not a doubled die, but a die with several hundreds of thousands more of coins to strike. How do I know that is it an aging die. Because of the die flow lines on the fields, on the edge of the devices. After you've seen an early die state coin, then you will know what I'm talking about. Here is an example:



Note how fresh the fields and devices are? This die was used less than 100 times. Thus the great detail of the design and the features of the devices. That is what most dies start out looking like but up to a million coins can be struck on some dies. But this is the new infant coin struck by a fresh die. Now go back and examine you coin. Now you see the flow lines, even flowing over the edges of the stars. Not a keeper unless you want an example to show to a new collector, to explain about die wear. But they eventually get worse before they are retired.

Well that does show me more. I have a problem trying to make sense of the V.V images. But the one with the stronger hub doubling on the stars is the 004:

See if you can match up the notches on the corners of the devices? While it is nice to have close images, it removes perspective as to where, what is affected and how strong. The image may help you as you have the coin in hand.

The Larger devices are showing Machine Doubling. Not a doubled die on those devices. The stars look like they were altered by Machine Doubling also.
