If this is not a TRUE DD then I really need to go to classes. Please confirm and is this has a high vale like the 1955 DD. Thanks Mike

Looks to me like strong Machine Doubling on the date and a die break filling the B of LIBERTY - none of which is associated with a doubled die. Our experts will be along shortly to confirm.

I can absolutely assure you the answer to that questions is NO. The 1955 doubled die obverse ( DDO) Lincoln cent is one of the most desired and valuable errors in the entire series - the coin you posted is likely valued as a curiosity.

Very nice example of MD,not a DDO. Die chip on B is kinda common.

The MD on the date is about as good an example as you could ask for.

When you look closer at it you can see that the devices are reduced in height:


A doubled die shows a widening of the devices, not a reduction of the devices. Also the affected area should show contour, not flattening of the devices:

metoo2003,
A minimum of 40x is too high. Look for one with the lowest x to 200x maximum.
