While not a classic DDO I am not sure if it is a "poor man's" DDO (had one of those before) or what but the "D" appears duplicated.

Not a DDO,poor mans doubled die which is die deterioration. Looks like it might be an RPM.

The so called poor mans doubled die is not a doubled die, it is a marketing scheme made up by dealers. It is so common that as said by one of our experts here, Coop, that searching a BU roll would probably end you up with more of the so called doubled die than a nice coin without it. I do see an RPM, maybe someone could match it up

The RPM might be this one:

(The two links are the same coin, just in two different places)

Pretty sure Tanman has got your number there. RPM 002 has a fairly distinct mint mark placement compared to the similar D/D's and yours looks very much like 002.
