I think this one has extra thickness but no notching. I can't tell if its doubled or distorted. Any help would be appreciated

Very heavy Die Deterioration, Die Deterioration Doubling on the date, and Die Cracks on the bottom bust, and Lincoln's head. All of this is very common for 1955 LWC's, as they used the dies way past there normal retirement. Not a Doubled Die, but the results of extreme die wear.

The die wear on this coin is showing an metal movement towards the rim of the coin. This happened a lot on the wheat cents of the 1950s' because they way over used the dies during that time. You can see the die wear also on the date. Years ago it was called a 'SO called' doubled die, but in reality it is just extreme die wear. Note the reverse is also showing the same thing on the tops of the devices. As the die gets even showing more die wear, you see the metal from the devices moving even more towards the rim:

A doubled die will show the devices enlarged not stretched out. Note on all these examples. how the devices are affected. How they are enlarged and what a doubled die will look like. These are all side by sides of a doubled die and a normal coin:

Sure did notice movement towards the rim. I thought maybe the doubling was making the letters larger. Thanks coop and e&v. I'm getting a better understanding of the subtle variations of doubled dies and die deterioration. Those pictures really helped me see the 3d effect of true doubling
