Hi everyone, this is my first time here and my first possible double die. I could really use some help from seasoned professionals to determine if I actually have something or not. I have uploaded the pics with the areas of interest circled in red. I eagerly await any feedback. Thanks

The correct terminology is Doubled Die.
What you have is called MD ( Mechanical Doubling)
It is known as one of the worthless types of Doubling.

Ps
Nice photography, It always helps when you can see all the detail.

Again, it is called a Doubled Die.
There is a big difference between DD and a MD.
Click on the light blue Mechanical Doubling for more info.
You are going to have to do some research before you get to be able
to tell the difference.
Also there is a wealth of information under the Search button at the top left hand corner.

with jimmyD, but there is one major exception coin with Machine Doubling, the 1888-O Morgan hot lips variety. That is a nice example you got there. Were are all here to help each other .

Wexler's is a good site to read up on doubled dies versus worthless doubling, http://doubleddie.com/144801.html and http://doubleddie.com/144822.html Try to get used to saying "doubled" die, not "double" die. Double die implies that there are two dies, doubled die correctly describes the process - the die was doubled during hubbing.

Nice example of MD - I'd put it in a 2x2 just for that.
