This is a list of destroyers of the United States Navy, sorted by hull number.
It includes all of the series DD, DL, DDG, DLG, DLGN.
CG-47 Ticonderoga and CG-48 Yorktown were approved as destroyers (DDG-47 and DDG-48) and redesignated cruisers while under construction; it is uncertain whether CG-49 Vincennes and CG-50 Valley Forge were ever authorized as destroyers by the United States Congress (though the fact that the DDG sequence resumes with DDG-51 Arleigh Burke argues that they were).

By eliminating those vessels marked with asterisks we reduce the available candidates to nine.
We can further eliminate Cummings because as Bob Comet stated, and I confirmed in Friedman's book on page 102, its MK 33 gun director was enclosed.
Mahan and Reid are possible candidates for elimination because they were both sunk in 1944, but I'll include them and look at the operational histories of the remaining eight.
