Sorry Josh, that is not a 1955 DDO. The real deal has a very dramatic spread and yours has none. In fact it doesn't even exhibit the poorman's doubled die which is actually only Machine Doubling of the last numeral 5. And no way this coin came from a mint set, it is clearly well circulated. Not knocking you because all collectors have to start somewhere but you should get some books ( Red Book) or similar to learn the different varieties, minting process and grading standards. Best of luck with your quests!

Given the photos posted, I'm not seeing evidence of a DDO.

Nothing other than a regular 1955.

Perhaps late die state deterioration.

"perhaps late die state deterioration"....
Use the search box and type in 1955 poor mans double die...there you will find your answer...

Glossary is a good, quick and easy read
and the search box is filled with tons of info
and lets not forget about CoopHome
I'm by no means a pro and will never claim to be...just my 2 cents

I'm curious, what makes you think this is DDO?
And why do you think it came from a mint set?
The tone alone tells a different story but the hit to the Reverse T is pretty noticeable.
