Let's see what you have first please so we can determine if it's a Doubled Die.
Here is a link for most DDO and DDR....
DDO Listings (varietyvista.com)
Generally, 1964 was the first and only year they were 90% silver. 1965-1970 they were 40% silver. 1971 began the clad coinage, but silver proofs were struck too.
All can have worth for silver content, or be in a superior condition, until the clads.
The clads need to be MS or a known variety. Variety Vista or Wexler can help you determine doubled die varieties.
That's not what the poster is asking... They want to know if there's such thing as a DDO and a DDR on the same coin.
I know it's possible, but I would have to research a bit to find the answer.
There's not to many on DDOR on these years

@Markay, I don't see enough here to call any of this a DDO or DDR. Nice coins but like I said, no Doubled Die unless you can prove it.
@Markay , Try this website and go to town.
I don't see the common one's here but there are less desirable one's, in my opinion.
@Markay …I don’t see any doubling from any of your pics. None of your coins appear to have been struck more than once. Hub doubling is not the same as being struck twice. Proofs are struck more than once, under controlled conditions, depending on the year and denomination. Your coins are very shiny, with a polished look.
What I do see is a lot of reflection and glare. Ditch whatever you are using to light your coins and go to 2 forty-watt bulbs at 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock, set either side of your scope or camera. Use a black or neutral gray background. Then try again.
Compare what you think is doubling to those images that are known and accepted at John Wexler’s website: doubleddie.com or at CONECA’s Variety Vista site.
Take your time and confirm to yourself. Reflection and glare can mimic doubling. Your research will tell you if you have doubling and whether or not it shows on both sides of a coin.
Let me know what you think sparks
Sadly most folks confuse Mechanical Doubling with being a Doubled Die. The thread below shows what MD looks like, flat and shelf like doubling.
