Hi Everyone,

I'm only seeing the (MD? DD?) on the letters 'NITED' in UNITED and 'AMER' in AMERICA. I'm not well versed on these older coins and would appreciate anyone's thoughts. I know from looking at past posts that usually doubling would be seen on the '2' and adjacent leaves but I'm just curious to find out what this would be classified as...many thanks.

This is typical Longacre shelf doubling, named after the designer and characteristic of the series.

Yes Longacre doubling. The frog nails it again.
