There is no double die, maybe a hard strike or a incorrect die, but not any of these could cause a double die. SOrry, keep hunting

The "Poor Man's DDO" is not a Doubled Die Obverse. Just a useless term that was made up after the discovery of the real deal "the big one" 1955 DDO. This was an alternative to the real deal when in fact, it's just Die Deterioration Doubling from an extremely worn die. Sorry, but there's no added value because it's normal and part of the Minting process.

Not a DDO. I personally hate the term "Poor Man's DDO" it's a misnomer that is meant to trick people into buying a worthless coin.

This deteriorating die phenomenon is common for this year - your example is actually not a very strong one!

I absolutely hate that term a lot as it's not correct. It's misleading and is meant to trick new collectors and uneducated buyers to purchase a coin with no added value. If you see this coin for sale with this term being used, then it's a big no no and you should avoid purchasing it. Just normal wear and tear from extremely worn out dies (very common in 1955 as the U.S. Mint would overuse the dies past their life). This is a warning to new collectors who have just started out.

And it occurred on many different obverse dies.
