    Blatant fake. Likely Chinese made.

    The reverse would almost pass, at a quick glance, but that obverse and Lincoln portrait are cartoonish. Compare with a real coin.

    It's a fake done by a 10 year old and I don't mean to insult 10 year olds but it's that bad.

    Yep. It says MADE IN CHINA all over it, without actually saying that.

    One look at that cartooney Abe was enough.

    Strange. This is the second time in a week (or so) that we saw a 1955 DDO with a very funny nose. Ali Express or Etsy might be running a sale on those.

    Are you referring to the prominent proboscis?

    It's fine as a gag or novelty coin. Pocket piece. Since most of us don't have an authentic 55 DD. (Of course some members here do, and the photos are breathtaking.) This coin looks like there's chocolate inside.
