I wanted to get your opinion. I know this coin isn't in the best shape, so it could be just circulation damage, but on the date and Liberty, and other spots as well, it looks to be a DDO. Let me know what you think. I have more pictures if you need to see them. Thanks all! :)

Well first off, all the Liberty areas look like that as part of the normal design:

On the motto on TRUST, that area looks like there were some die polishing issues on those devices making them smaller on your coin. While the other parts look larger, (probably because of the reduction on some devices). But best way to tell for sure is to create images of a normal coin with the outside edges of the devices compared with your coin. Set the Vertical to A line under Liberty to make sure the rotations are level. Then:
Rotate 36 degrees CW on IN GOD on both images
Normal rotation for N_WE_T on the second image.
Rotate the TRUST 30 degrees CCW on both sets of images. Crop to the outside edges of those devices and then make them both the same width, and place them over each other to see how they compare in size of each set of devices. That will show if they are the same size or not. If they are smaller on Trust, then I'm correct on the polishing issue. But on the other devices see if they are both the same size? If so then the coin is from a normal die. If the images on the coin is question, it is larger, then it might be a doubled die. But you need editing software to tell for sure on this coin. The DDO is larger, but need to be seen closer in view, side by side.




That is how you can tell if it is a DDO or from a normal die.
