Cherrypicked this one and it came in the mail today. Proofs are hard to get a grade on from photos but it would seem this thing should go 67 with a very strong DDR so might NGC slab it.

Another great variety with nice separation.
Words of encouragement are one of the major food groups. We need to consume them regularly to thrive and grow.

Great coin! Though I think the scattered marks in the field would hold it to 66 or depending on how it is in hand, 65, though I'm extremely harsh with proofs

Thanks for all the super nice comments!

And John I'd go with NGC as it's not a Cherrypicker variety so PCGS at best would label it "minor DDR." I like the actual attribute on the label.

A medium spread shows on the wheat ears, and the motto. This die is coupled with 1955P-1DO-007P. NOTE: Photos were taken through a slab. An unslabbed example will reveal better focus and more detail. Coupled with 1955P-1DO-007P (FS-103)

Doesn't look like a match to your coin either though.
DDO

Here is the other die coppercoins lists, but doesn't match it to another other DDR for that year.

Coin is DDR-007, not DDR-004. Has the clear die marker on the lower left wheat I just didn't do a close up of it, and not a DDO.

I took a look at that 1DR-003 when I was attributing this one and no, it does not match and does not have those markers. Not sure which die, if any, from VV matches that one but it sure has some interesting markers for a proof.
