A prime example of why you don't clean your coins! This 1985P obviously had been cleaned and was bright enough to catch the eye. However the coin was ruined in the run up of hunting errors of which there were several. I noticed a ridge ring at the top of the obverse which caused the motto to possibly defeat a DDO-001 due to a shift in the script. This was not caused by the cleaning but exasperated the effect by attracting my attention.
The reverse of this coin shows a Die Crack across the O in One Cent and a long crack running from the T in United to the left bottom base of the Memorial. The left side of the Memorial is also clearly doubled.
Because of the cleaning the coin's unique quality was ruined! Hopefully this will point to the error of cleaning any coin. Oh well I still have 70 plus pennies to search. Regards and thanks for looking.

It does look to be a DDO.

The obverse is showing heavy die wear and ridge rim on the Motto area.
Reverse what your are seeing is not a DDR. Why not? Well all the ONE CENT area would be showing the same thing on those devices. A closer view might show die die crack on that area. Note that is flows over the top of the 'O' on ONE to the outer edge of the die. (right before the rim. If it were a doubled die it would show all the devices affected like this:

A doubled die could not affect that strong on just one device. So it is a die crack.

COOP I thought the possible Doubled Die was on the obverse not the reverse. The reverse had an interesting die crack to the rim over the O on One. Sorry for the confusion! Regards.

Note on the closed devices how the devices are altered in shape from a normal die:
