Looks like the double 888 variation with some extras on the obverse. MD I'm guessing on legend and Queens face. And die chips or extra filling or something on legend letters

Yep, the dies were getting tired during the '88 strikings. It's nice to have all 3 8's repunched. There are i, 2, 3 repunched and sometimes the 1. Lots of '88 varieties.
