I'm thinking the reverse of this Indian Head is an MD. I see it quite a bit at the bottom of the wreath. What do you think? Thanks.

Terrible photos. Seems the harder I try to get a clear pic the worse it gets. Here is a closeup of the lower wreath (L)
With what looks like doubling. The one cent is also doubled. I think it's all MD.

That cent is in great shape!

This doubling you see may very well be Longacre doubling, which is a form of Machine Doubling. I too have a few Indian cents with that issue.

According to the prevailing theories, Longacre doubling is not a form of Machine Doubling, since it occurs on the dies, not during coin production. I can't tell what the OP is seeing from the images provided.

I thought Longacre doubling occurred as a result of re-cutting the dies usually around the lettering. Am I wrong about that?
