1970 S mint penny signs of doubling on a small date coin?

I'm new to coins,as I gotinto it 6 months ago when I heard a funny jangle in my change.found a unique coin and ever since I've look through the change for oddities..thus far only quarters I check .untill yesterday.while cleaning out pockets a penny stood out..I've collected wheats over the years but by chance.this one seemed off enough I did a Google to find out might have something here. Let it be said my track record can show I don't get such luck.so

ill attach some photos and see what the professionals have to say .I think it's a small date1970 penny with signs of doubling in the back and it's an off center punch either way in my opinion. Thanx for any input!

    @syne311 ... Welcome aboard. The doubling you see is machine doubling. No numismatic premium. The very slight 'off center' is also super minor and commands no premium. Good luck in your searching and collecting. Cheers, RickO
