I was going through that roll of 1955's wheaties looking for the double eyelid and came across this one. And if this isn't a doubled die then why not? for example the second "T" in the word trust, it's got the extra horizontal bar like other examples (not of the same year) that that's the only way it was distinguished as a double die. that & moderate to heavy extra thickness which this has starting at the letter "D" in God. Then in the word Liberty at the base of the T and the Y you can see an extra Base & on the letter T it also has an extra horizontal bar at the top. also theres the eyelid. Then theres the reverse side you got the letter "M" that raises questions it could very well be a lucky ding I guess but still. Then there's also the end of the wheat stalk the shows two ends. I guess my question is if this isn't a double die why do these traits only work for some coins and not others?

Alright, there's a lot to take in so I'm just going to address each imagine in order in a bulleted list sort of fashion.

The date shows Die Deterioration Doubling (DDD) which is caused by the die wearing. The mint mark has the same DDD and a broken mint mark punch or die post (that bit of extra metal inside it).

The T shows a well placed hit. A doubled die would have the device enlarged rather then kept the same or shrunk.

The LIBERTY also shows DDD.

The M of AMERICA is either MD or a well placed hit.

Again, DDD on the eyelid.

Lastly the wheat stalk shows a well placed hit as well.

Because everything you mentioned, and all doubled dies will have the devices enlarged. In your example they all either had reduced device size or it was attributable to die wear (which naturally expands devices)
