What do you think this is? A doubled die or strike doubling? Maybe a new variety? Perhaps just worn die?

I am on a crap laptop computer, out of town, and the clarity is not the best. I think that you have a combination of two types of "doubling". You definitely have machine or mechanical doubling which causes a "shadow" next to the most evident strike. It is caused by a loose or chattering collar and the planchet will rotate slightly as the die begins it's upstroke away from the coin. Since it is a rotational movement of the planchet in relation to the die they all should be basically in the same direction (allowing for the arc). Some of the letters in Canada are not that way (the N the most). It may have been R/P'd. I see no doubling on the date, but that may be the machine here.
