I'm still new to coin collecting but I have heard that some varieties of these dates could be valuable, and have been doing some research and am curious if maybe I have something... to me it looks there is doubling in the '69 s and by his mouth and nose looks odd to me... And the back of the '55 looks messed up I was curious if anybody knew what it was. I'm pretty much curious if anybody else sees what I'm seeing or anything else or if I'm just being miss hopeful over here

Unfortunately, the photos are a bit too blurry to see any possible doubling.

The 1955's reverse looks like it was the end coin in a roll for quite a long time. The exposed area oxidized and toned, the covered area and obverse remained unaffected.

I can't see much in these images. I don't see a variety that would make them rare or valuable. With these dates it is pretty obvious and once you see one then you know what you're looking at.

Here's the 69-S and 1955 Doubled Die.

I do not see a doubled die on either coin. If you 69' doesn't look like the one in the image then it's not the doubled die you're looking for.
