I'm back, with another Lincoln cent from my penny roll search. This is the 1955 P, I mentioned earlier when I presented the 1955 S. The DD IS ON THE OBVERSE Showing on the DATE, LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST. There is also some toning on the right side edging.
I used a microscope app to take some up close pictures I hope they work. Some of these coins are really nice. on the flip side, I bought a 1969 S BU roll that is straight crazy. Pretty to look at, but under a scope
just messy!
Anyhoo on with this learning process with identifying DDO'S. Thanks in advance!

Sorry, photos are far too blurry to be certain. I am not seeing anything that looks like a doubled die though.

It's what Wexler calls "Worthless Doubling " or Mechanical Doubling .

Lsea789, your close-ups are too out-of-focus for us to render an opinion for you. Just because they are enlarged the images don't necessarily show us the info we seek unless they are sharp!

I don't know what set up for your photography you are using, but in MY experience, the simpler the better. Many members here as well as myself use only the cameras in our phones with excellent results. I use an iPhone 8, and when I photograph my coins I use the built in zoom to about 5X and I find this to be about the ideal range you'll want to be in. Don't underestimate your cell phone thinking they can't possibly be good for coin photography because most have excellent sharp lens!

The lighting you use makes all the difference as well. A defused single light source (use a piece of white paper for this, OR sunlight) works best. Usually we need to see the whole coin, both sides, and one or two close-ups images of the areas in question. Too many photos causes overkill and is not helpful. Never hold your coins, lay the down on a hard surface (one without a pattern is best). You want razor sharp images, practice until you achieve them.

Like anything else, the more you do it, the better you'll get. Experiment and keep trying! We're here to help with any questions that arise. The hardest part of the process is resizing and uploading, and you have already mastered that! We look forward to seeing more of your coins! I hope you have found any of this info useful.

It looks like heavy die polishing and Die Deterioration may have caused the devices to look doubled. Better images will help verify this.

Appears to be the classic '55 with Die Deterioration, which eventually shows the 'poor man's doubled die', among other things. I have a pile of these.
