Continuing my search thru the proof sets, I found 2 of these. I am posting only 1 of them. There are no other known doubled dies for that year and therefore attribution is easy. If it is a true doubled die, it is FS-101.
Here is the VV listing:

And here are some pics of my coin.

Looks legit to me, with nice splits on the corners of several letters. Nice find!

Thank you for all of the comments.

Check for the re-engraved tail feathers

I was definitely looking for those. They seem even more valuable than the DDO. I am amazed at the collectability of recut or re-engraved varieties. To me, it is like collecting die states. A die got overused, and then fixed up a little.
I did find a re-engraved coat Lincoln Cent a while back which I sent off to NGC already. I don't have nice pictures of it, but I have a not-so-nice picture. It should be enough to confirm the attribution as FS-402

I have the 1953 and 1952 proofs with the re-engraved tail feathers, the 1952 is also the super bird.

BigSilver,
What stage would you say your coins are in?

They seem to be from pretty fresh dies, but die states are not really my area. Curious, why do you ask?

Because I checked vv and don't see a match. Closest was stage A.
