I agree, but it's about acronyms and what they stand for, there's other topics and pages on my main website to explain the difference between Doubled Dies and strike doubling.

Strike doubling occurs during the strike when the die vibrates, causing a shelf like flatness to the doubling.

A doubled die is created during the creation of a die and is distinct since doubled design features of the coin are actual engraved off center in the during the hubbing (engraving) process, either to the left, right, below or above the design features. It can affect all devices or just a single number or letter.

I know it can be difficult to discern for some an inexperienced eye, but once you see a couple different Doubled Dies in person then you can see how different it is from strike doubling.
