The numbers 979 and the leaf above the date are doubled and on the reverse, there's doubling around her face and right of her shoulder.
Can't seem to get the close-up for the front to load. I'll have to take another later. plus some of the D is missing by the Queens head, and the indent on her temple.
Sorry about the quality it's the best camera I have until my new one arrives.

What you are seeing is Die Deterioration Doubling on the Reverse and Machine Doubling on the Obverse, not a doubled die.

When looking online, a few sites list Canadian coins as "Double" which is Die Deterioration or Machine Doubling.

The word "Double" and "Doubled" mean two different things, Doubled being genuine doubled die, and "Double" being machine or deterioration doubling.

007 ... Good on you for posting the "doubling" info. Though it's been entered here on this site for years, there is still confusion in many folk's minds about the definitions or "meaning". It doesn't do it any good that Zoell, Griffin and Charlton have, many times, used it wrong for decades.

Thank you okiecoiner,
An I agree, I see this often. I was just looking at some ICCS graded coins and they have a 1955 DDR Canadian quarter listed as a "Double Die" and a 1953 Canadian quarter DDR listed as a "Double Date" and all I could say was wow, one of the many reasons I dont bother to grade my coins.
