Hard to tell from those picture as there is white light obstructing some of the detail and they are out of focus.

Although the date does look like it may be Doubled, what concerns me is the MM "S" which appears to show the same type of doubling. There should be no doubling on the MM. Although the letters do appear to have some doubling, I can't really tell what type. You don't show a picture of the word LIBERTY which is an easy way to tell if it is an actual DD. Compare your coin against the enclosed picture and you should be able to answer your own question. Note how the word LIBERTY is doubled north and south while the words IN GOD WE TRUST is doubled east to west.

I have questions Greenstang.? I'm asking for trying to understand the viewing and grading you did ? I just viewed the coin.as saying Mint mark condition? Or seeing if that is a old left stain stamped ? Or is that a also a relaunched MINT mark,as shown in the field of the coins mint mark? Help me here! Because if so would that be a error? Why else would they repunch the Mint mark before that one ?pardon me.hello to all :)

First, a repunched MM is not an error, it is a variety. A repunched MM happens when the worker punches the MM into the working die. Usually they have to be struck more than once to obtain the desired depth and sometimes the punch moves slightly causing what is known as a repunched MM. They are not uncommon as however many coins are minted from that die (say750,000) then that's how many there will be. See the enclosed photo compliments of John Wexler of the process of punching a MM. It is hard to tell from the OP's photo if it is repunched or not but I suspect it is MD.

Well thank you!  See I wanted to know! Because when is it determined to add old coinage in to play or if it is every allowed? Because someone may not have seen or viewed in that manner.that's how some would have viewed it as seeing it .that's why I'm asking so many questions.So please don't nobody get upset with me when I'm trying to understand! Like I said ! We may get our jumps starts from books.however some people are hands on learning . So smile when you helping me! :-)

Not upset with you, but I am having great difficulty trying to make sense out of your posts.  I take it that english is not your native language?

What I am seeing is the lighting in the closeups  giving it the appearance to doubling.  In the fianl image I don't see any doubling.
