I picked up this 1916-D Buffalo and to me it is a DDO although according to Walter Breen's Encyclopedia none have been verified. What do you thank?

Great job on the photography.  For what it is worth, in my lowly opinion, this is a very strong example of strike doubling (hub doubling).  The feather made me pause but each ghost image appears as a shelflike shadow rather than a separate strike.  The secondary, ghost, image has no signs of downward sloping of the shelf on the side of the primary image (the downward slope is need to indicate a true doubled strike of the die.)  Just one old guy's view.  You can always send it in and see what the "experts" say.  I you have, what did they say?
