I would say MD with a bit of DDD mixed in -- Sorry, not seeing a DD.

Thanks for your comment.

I see the MD but the thickness of the letters especially does not spread as DDD. So it is possible from my knowledge so far that the letters are thick because the master hob was like that for many 70's coins or it is DD.
When I checked the Chery Picker's listing it looks fairly close to one of the examples but not exact which lead me to believe that it is just how some pennies were made in the 70's nevertheless, because you guys are more knowledgeable and experienced than me I do crave your indulgence on this matter.

Just normal sized raised devices. The area on the fields appears to be die wear, Keep in mind that if the dies are wearing, that reduces the fields. When the fields are reduced, it leaves a raised on the coin struck. That is what you are seeing.

Note what a DDO looks like that year:

Die 1: Note the inside of the closed devices, how much smaller they are?
Note the enlargement of the devices?

Die 2: Note the inside of the closed devices, how much smaller they are?
