This Mint set includes at least 3 coins that are possibly doubled in the "IN GOD WE TRUST" The Quarter, Kennedy half dollar and the Eisenhower Dollar. are these worth anything

This is flat-like push doubling where the metal was pushed away from the sides of the devices during the strike and is common. This is not a doubled die so adds no extra value to the coins.

Nice images once again.
Unfortunately it all looks like MD.
MD on clad coinage is even harder to differentiate than copper. Clad coinage gets me on a regular basis.

With true die doubling, the top edge of the secondary image is slightly rounded and most of the time there will be notching or splits at the corners of the letters/devices.
The pros I've been fortunate enough to interact with will invariably be looking for that notching, especially if it is a possible new variety.

Keep up the hunt.

That MD is a real bugger especially on the clad coinage.
