So was looking this over it looks wierd to me, is this circulation wear Machine Doubling and DDD around in god we trust the mm and NIT in United on the front? And for the reverse should land of enchantment look the way it does? The difference is most apparent in the F (of) and the H of enchantment the bar of the h is not straight at all. Differences on the back are definitely very noticeable.Thanks for your help!

I'll have to get better photos of the area around the sun once I get home from work but here is what I'm talking about for land of enchantment on the reverse. Top is an unc coin for reference bottom is the mints example, mine in the middle.

Mint pic looks like a proof coin.Never compare a proof coin with a non proof coin. Yours looks like maybe a very minor Struck Through Grease.

Got my uncirculated mint photo from here,https://www.usmint.gov/coins/coin-m...s/new-mexico
notice the proof black in the fields of the coin behind enchantment. I just got home so I'm going to take a pic of the central design area to show the majority of the suspected doubled area.

Here are photos of the Middle, the 2nd shows a clear full design same height and split in the center making it enlarge the devices it affects. The third is under as minimal lighting as possible (I always use diffused axial lighting to cut down on as much glare and reflection as I can but just to be extra sure went super dark I did adjust the brightness 100%on the photo 3 so it's easier to see). I tried looking to see if It matched an example but I didn't see one? since the other day I've been doing my best to avoid grease stuckthrough on words so I don't trip myself up with only appearing larger. This all looks distorted to me and enlarged with clear design. This is the first time I've see a split apear and like hide in the strike. At first it looked like ? As I was looking I realized the split which I thought was the beggining of some deterioration or some other dumb thing but it is trippy to look at.. its not indented it actually rises to completes the full strike not step like.. when looking profile wise into the bays of the sun design thats something I've never seen before in person... it's hard to describe. I'm more trying not to get my hopes up hence asking questions and trying to learn what it is so that I can keep furthering my understanding of this all

The areas where the arrows are pointing to what's up with this. This is more or less what I asking about... I was having a hard time getting it to focus in on. But this is what it looks like in the light.
