Is the "G O D" a DDO? I have spent a lot of time trying to look at it at different angles and different light sources. Sometimes it looks like it, and others it doesn't.

I see what you are talking about. I would have asked also. I am eager to see what others say. I will reserve judgement.

Or coin rub during circulation. If it were a doubled die, the devices would be enlarged. Usually seen more often on the date area:

DDs are impossible to find! There are DDs out there that look so similar to attributes that MDs have. The obvious things like CUD, die chips, die cracks, etc. are easy to spot. Outside of the 1955 penny, I think I need to get my hands on a real DD so I can compare appropriately (the State Quarter window DDs don't count--too easy to spot).

Why are they quarter ones too easy? Because you are familiar as to what to look for. On the other ones your having difficulty with, look at the examples listed on the different sites, and notice where and what to look for doubled dies. That way when you see some on the images, keep them in mind for other coins in the same era to see if they have similar doubling. Knowing what to look for is the greatest aid in spotting them while searching. Try looking up a year a day and see what to look for and become more familiar. So when you see these over and over, there's where to look! will hit you. Just like in school, it you don't read the books, you never make the grades you really want.
