Imho,Your cent looks extremely worn .
The crack on Lincoln’s back does not constitute as a double die.

@Nano meza From the very weak LDS reverse and ;likewise the late die stage punch on the obverse by definition makes it a 1922 weak D with a huge die crack(looks like the die pair was about tp blow)or PMD but a Weak D nonetheless! "All 1922 Lincoln Wheat Cents (Pennies) were minted at the Denver Mint and should have received a "D" mint mark. An issue arises at the Denver Mint where the coin dies used to strike coins were being overworked and overused. Some coins would receive a weak "D" mint mark and in some very rare cases the mint mark would be completely missing. The rest of the coin features would have a weaker strike as well since the dies were so worn out. The "No D" variety is the rarest and most valuable. The penny is automatically classified as a "Weak D" variety if there are any traces of the "D" mint mark. Some coins will have a "Strong Reverse" or a "Strong Obverse" which means that the worn out dies were just replaced with new ones."
here's mine die pair#2 (or half of it)obvious the anvil die was changed but not the hammer die...
I wouldn't even call the OP coin a weak D. And your "die pair 2 or half of it" is just a worn obv paired with a much newer rev. there is nothing to say that either of those dies was used for the "die pair 2 noD"
It's a 1922-D well worn Cent with a nice die crack along Lincoln's back. Not what I would call a weak D either.
That's not a die crack on the back of the OP coin, it's a scratch.
for what its worth I stand corrected on my coin notice I said Anvil die might have been changed(reverse) die pair #3 seems closer.....
The penny is automatically classified as a "Weak D" variety if there are any traces of the "D" mint mark.
So your saying that this is a weak D?
I think you should research a little more if you think any 22 with a D is a variety.
There are 22D's and there are 22D weak D's
The 1922 cent was only minted in Denver hence by your classisifaction all of them would be weak D's. Please do a little more research on this date.
If that were true then EVERY 22 D is a "weak D".
They are "weak D" if there is no D or just a trace of a D and they are not from Die Pair 2 (Because only on die pair 2 was the D completely removed from the obv die) The D on the OP coin is much too strong to be considered a "weak D". It is NOT just a trace.
Look at the op's coin and look at the link you just posted. Are you telling us you see the same D on both coins?
Take it up with Brad as I DO MY RESEARCH....http://www.lincolncentresource.com/1922Ddievarieties.html
Your Funny @funnycoins
Hang around for a while.
It's easy to get confused when you are new to coins and Varietys.
The D in the OP seems pretty strong to me.
If that yellow color is what it looks like, that's too bad.
