Hello experts,
I've been holding on to this coming for quite sometimes now and I was wondering if someone could help me determine if this is in fact a DD and if it's worth grading it ?

Based on what I can see, this looks like Machine Doubling, however pictures of the entire coin would help.

Thank you for the fast response, I will definitely upload more photos tomorrow once I get my micro camera from the storage.
Here is the thing, The L in Liberty completely attached to the rim, the I shows doubling similar to the date and the word Liberty is overall thicker, same thing with the In God We Trust. There are multiple errors on Lincoln's face and I just noticed the doubling on the reverse side of the coin!

Only by looking at the rim of the coin you can see doubling on both sides of the coin. Is it even possible? I wasn't able to find any coin that's double die on both sides &

. It is what is called a "poor mans" doubled die which is really a worn die. Not worth slabbing.

@mil, first welcome to CCF. Second, looks to me like this coin was struck from a tired die.

But seriously, it looks like circulation flattening to me, along with a tired die as Spence mentioned.

At the risk of being redundant, large and sharp photos of the entire coin--obverse and reverse--would sure help. Thanks.
