Hi guys, put this under the scope and noticed what appears to me to me Machine Doubling on the reverse letters "DOLLA". What do you all think?

Hard to give a difinitive answer from looking at those images, but I'm fairly certain you are correct to assume Machine Doubling. I have hunted toonies almost daily along with other denominations for the past year and a half an have yet to find a 1996 doubled die example.

Thanks John! Sorry my scope doesn't have the craziest zoom unfortunately. Out of curiosity, What will qualify as a "doubled die"? Split serifs?

Look for things like split serifs and notching.

When looking for doubled dies on two dollar coins the seperation in doubling and the notching present is fairly obvious.

You can check this post a CCF member created regarding a DDO / DDR example on a 2012 toonie, I replied with some photos on there as well. http://goccf.com/t/399163&SearchTerms=Toonie

When it comes to doubled dies on the two dollar coin the photos you will find on that post is what you will want to keep an eye out for, regardless of the year.
