Yes it is very possible for a Proof to have DDO. As all proofs are struck twice, it is not uncommon for them to have  DD. If you have a strong microscope and look at a Proof Coin, you can probably see some sort slight doubling on a lot of them.

I think yours would be a keeper as they are not usually off as much as yours is (Where was Quality Control?)

I’m not following. What do you mean quality control? Are you referring to better capsule?

I mean quality control at the Mint. I thought Proof Coins were supposed to be inspected before leaving the Mint.
