Found this really clean '59 at work today... seems to have a TON of die scratches on the reverse... As you all know I'm terrible at identifying DDO/DDR's so I'm here asking for you're opinions.. as always, thank you for all your help

The only thing that I see might be a little MD and circulation wear.

Probably Die Deterioration or polishing with wire brush.
"What you are seeing is something the mint called "stoning" of the dies. Sometimes to remove clashmarks they would use an emory stick with coarse abrasives to scour out the marks. Now ideally this would be followed with finer abrasives and eventually polishing with a circular lap to remove all the scratches left by the coarse abrasives. (Polishing out heavy clashmarks with the fine polishing lap would that forever.) Well that didn't always happen, maybe they forgot or were pressed for production and the coarsely abraded dies were put back into service. We call all of these marks coarse, fine, or almost invisible, die polish lines. Although in the early stages they really aren't "polishing"."

This coin was cleaned before you got it. Note around the mint mark, the dark grit on that area? Those shows the coin was cleaned. So the fields are not original.
