Ask the experts: @Fred Weinberg; @paddyman98; @JCro57; @furryfrog02; @desertgem; et al.
@thomas mozzillo I'm going to tell you the same thing @Fred Weinberg will say..
I am not a Variety Specialist. .. @Rick Stachowski is more of a expert on DDO and DDR questions than we are
The mm looks doubled. Doubling occurs during die manufacturing. The mm is punched into the die after its made. It wouldn't be doubled like the date. Yes, it could be a RPM, but your talking lotto odds to have both errors
The digits look thinner a normal coin. This doesn't happen on doubled dies
I can't see any split serifs, but the pic may not be clear enough.
Interesting coin. I'll wait and see what others have to say, but those are my reasons for believing it's not a DDO
try a neutral background color ... like white or black paper.
it helps the cameras white balance .. if you don't know what that is .. then just *always* use black or white paper as the background.
And as usual, I won't mind apologizing if I'm wrong!
i was thinking it was 002 or some other variation
but the images hurt my eyes to look at them
so the op can check himself

Yes, clearer pictures would certainly help!
OP needs to spend a half day, or a full day or more to learn how to take clear, in focus pictures.
put aside the coins .. and learn to take pictures.
I've stopped posting to posts where the images are fuzzy and out of focus for members who have been here for a while. Why put in so much effort to try and determine what it is when the OPs don't put the effort to take clear pictures.
I hear you. That's my thought as well. It's very frustrating for those trying to help. You kinda wonder sometimes if it's not intentional.
Thanks for letting me know. I won't use your's or Fred's anymore. In fact, from now on I'm not going to name anyone without their permission.
