I received 20 Ike's today and 5 of them are like this one I took the photos of this one myself.

This one look like a standard MDD - I am not a certified grader and I want to learn what I can from the Pro's.

Any help would be appreciated very much..

Sincerely: Buster

Closer pics would be better, but I believe you are correct.
If it looks like a "Shelf" along the edges of the devices, then MDD.

On the motto and letters, the "good" DDO shows definitive "notching" mostly at the corners of the lettering.

Go to our DIVA list and check out the the good close up pics for DDO/DDR referencing and pick-up points
"A picture is worth a thousand words".
Some other good pics in our Ike Book , (Chapter 27) showing and explaining MDD as well.

Happy Hunting!
Brian

As promised - Closer images - sorry but this is the best I can do - I have had this Microscope for 5 years now and I still don't know exactly how to use it. I maxed out my zoom settings this time - You should be able to enlarge them with your mouse - good luck and please let me know if these are any better images.
