The example you have linked to is a very lightly circulated specimen. The one i have found is heavily circulated, meaning some of the doubling is rubbed down and no longer visible, and there is some damage to the devices. There are enough markers still visible that match the Type 1 to give a positive identification........otherwise you are suggesting a whole new DDO, making this even more rare and valuable?
I think we can attribute the coin with additional pictures. My thinking it's either 001 or 002. Either way, it's a valuable coin. Take a look at the link I posted above for both and try to find the markers. And if you can, take pictures to mimic what they have posted there for the coin and the markers. We should be able to help.
have you ever seen a 1955 DDO in VG?
The doubling is still very clear
To your point, that DDO is readily identifiable by the die scratches inside the crossbar of the T in Cent. Tucked so close, the T actually protects the scratches making lower grade identification possible and guards against purchases of counterfeit coins. I'm still wondering which variety the OP has.
We'll find out, I've sent it to PCGS for verification and grade.
