I have seen plenty of Machine Doubling but not like this. Any help will be appreciated.

I'm thinking Die Deterioration is a factor here. Largen and sharp photos of the obverse and reverse might tell us more. Thanks.

Always give us entire photos of both sides of your coin, please. I agree, from the little with can see, this appears to be Die Deterioration.

to the CCF!

outlined lettering like that is usually caused by Die Deterioration

My coin microscope won't zoom out far enough for a full view so here are cell photos.

. I agree with DDD. It looks similar to Longacre doubling but isn't.

The dies are getting weak and allows additional metal to flow into the field. A DDO or DDR will always change the size of the device.

Either way it doesn't add a premium to the coin. But leaning more towards die wear.
