I recently found a 1917 penny that I believe is a DDO-001. It is a little worn, but for it's age, I think it's a beauty!
at first glance it looked like a normal 1917 penny, but when I zoomed in on the pictures I took, you can clearly see the split serifs.
Look at the one picture that I edited. You can tell it's a different color from editing. I did this because you can see the split serifs much easier because of the contrast of color. It makes it easier to see the doubling around the R and U of TRUST and the 7 of the date.
Let me know what you all think. happy hunting everyone!

@dbeck, while I do see circulation flattening on the letters, sorry but I don't see split serifs. Here is a blown up version of your enhanced close-up:

Closer and sharper pics may help, though.

I'm not seeing it either.

The second leg on that R of TRUST is esay to see even in well circulated examples and it's not showing up on yours..
