I was studying other pictures I have of this coin today. Am I seeing a MPD in the denticles between the 9 and 0?
If you get one, don't do like me and skip the directions. There is a clear lens cap on it. You can take pictures through it, but they will have...
I agree. I found all mine with a loupe first.
I bought it on EBay.
It's like this one
Thanks for the reference. I believe it is
This one had an interesting die crack and chips on the back.
The fact that you are not seeing it is probably an indication that it is nothing, but here is the photo with an arrow and a closeup.
So what caused the effect on the mint mark in the last picture in my first post?
Thanks for your help! I've collected Lincolns since I was young, but I am just starting with varieties.
You may be right. The die chips on the wheat are a little different, but are there.
Look at the lower loop of the mint mark.
I am using a video microscope. It has LED lighting, which skews the coloring, but does light it well. (Cost me $17.00)
Looked through some of my Lincoln cents and found a few interesting coins. I believe the 53-D is an RPM-001. Is there any value to the others?...
Thanks everyone. This coin would have been better left in the encasement! :-)
Please help me understand how to distinguish this from the MD in the 1890. Why is there no doubling in the 8?
What about this coin?...
An encased coin seems plausible, but examples I've found don't seem to damage the coin this much. I've seen buttons made from IHCs that are more...
A mint error or later damage?

Above the 9 and 0?
