The zoom is a bit close up. In order to find a doubled die you first need to learn what to look for. I use a jeweler's loupe,14x. Most people can use a 10x or 12x,but my eyes are as old as I am . Once you know what to look for you will find them,that goes for doubled dies,RPM's and all the rest. As to the 1995-D you posted,here is a link to learn from. http://doubleddie.com/506234.html

On the outside edges of the devices and reducing the size/contour of the devices is where you find Machine Doubling. So it is just the common Machine Doubling that is caused by the machine not by the dies. A doubled die is a doubled die because the die is doubled, thus the term, 'Doubled die."
