The face is a little to work down for me to tell on the eye lid, but the rest appears to match. What do y'all say?

Your coin is not a DDO. Rather a worn die effect on the devices and a nice filled die in B

You are right. The wear and tear of your coin can make it difficult for anyone to determine if your coin qualifies as WDDO-004. I can't see the extra eyelid below the normal eyelid. I can't see the heavy die scratches above the head, below GOD. Hopefully, the experts can see what I can't see.

I can see the die chip clogging the bottom part of 'B' of LIBERTY.

The mintmark is too high to be DDO-004. Note the location on the 004 is lower:

Also the eye look more like damage, not a doubled (raised) eyelid. (Check the example on 004?)

Markers only count if the hub doubling is present. The die got through the same processes over and over and a same even will cause the same damage to a die. So the broken post on the 'B' is a common marker on several dies. (also the mint used the dies way past normal retirement. So they are compromised on the 1950's wheat cents)

Thanks coop. I really couldn't tell on the eye lid. My coin is pretty worn. Thank you for noting the position of the mint mark. This helps me realize aspects I overlooked from the beginning. Still trying to train my eyes to note even the smallest differences.
