What did you check it against since you say it is DDR #001
EDIT ... I just noticed you reference DDR .. not DDO .. so ignore the below. I like to check the E PLURIBUS of which yours is heavily damaged and doesn't look like DDR-001 for a PROOF coin, which yours isn't a proof.
One of the most visual aspect of 1954 D DDO-001
is the "IN GOD" fattening of the upper part of the letters. It's quite pronounced in the VV images, such as:
which is totally missing in your image
It may be more similar to 002, but I use the Date for that initial identification of which your images are not clear and close enough to see. BUT the MM position isn't there for 002 anyways (nor for 003).
so I'm with the others in that I see nothing in related to Variety Vista DDs.
Also, be aware that even though your cent is "nice" it's still has a good amount of wear and damage from circulation.
We all make mistakes. Thank you for the correction. I can only laugh and hope others do the same. LOL
I've made bigger ones , no shame. I feel bad for the people sitting at home typing undoubtedly calling me some colorful names in utter frustration, to them I say, I'm sure you've had or will have your moment some time. Thanks everyone, hope you can relax.
