Note the shape of the date digits. We see strong circulation wear on the devices, with Machine Doubling. Note how it is rough looking? When compared with a a lower mintage die, then you don't see the distortion that you see on your coin, on the earlier die state coin.
On the one listing for that year/mint for a DDO, only certain devices are affected:
To match to a certain die, all the hub doubling much exactly match. Machine Doubling is not a doubled die.

Also, remember that Die Deterioration can take many forms. Die Deterioration is the result of older well-used dies.

Die flow lines are one thing to look for but may not be visible if the dies have been polished or on well-circulated coins.
Words of encouragement are one of the major food groups. We need to consume them regularly to thrive and grow.
