I've been searching through my 1934 Lincoln wheat cents and trying my best to figure out if I have a DDO FS-101. The processing and picturing from real examples are confusing for me. I would gladly appreciate the proper examples and explanation for this particular coin. THANK YOU!

Looks like circulation flattening on your coin. They best to tell in on the 'E' on WE:

Notice on 001-003 images the bottom curve of the 'E'. That is what to look for.
Here is a DDO for that year that I found:http://www.coppercoins.com/lincoln/...ie_state=lds
But the images doesn't show the 'E' on WE. But take a look at these images:

Note the 'E' on these images.

Coneca DDO-001 is a different die altogether than fs-101. You asked about fs-101 so here is my example with a photo and then a photo overlay that shows what the doubling is.

There are markers to help identify the die but I don't see the doubling nor the markers on your coin.

We do this... always. I always try to help everyone see what I see on a coin. When you read about something, little is remember, but when you see it, it lasts a lot longer.

I recently saw these pictures from a PCGS holder and wondering how the coin is DDO FS-101? It doesn't look like anything special at all? Someone can explain to me, what am I missing?

Fs-101 is extremely hard to spot in lower grades and later die states. In the PCGS example you show here there might be a hint of the die marker between the R and U of Trust but I can't be positive. PCGS has been known to flub an attributions as well.

The 1934 fs-101 is a very nice score when you find one but is one of the most difficult dies of the series to "cut your teeth" on.
Even in hand , some examples need to be tilted to the light in just the right way to even see the doubling ( my example included).
You might want to save all your 34's and train up your eye on other coins.
Revisiting your stash from time to time will probably amaze you at what youreye picks up in these later searches.
