    As the title indicates I found these two together and was pretty pumped about it! It's tough to get a handle on the desirability and value of the one with the date that was struck through Grease. Greasers are common but I haven't seen too many with the date completely gone. Any ideas on what something like that could be worth? This Lincoln Memorial Cent has a close am and is made of copper clad zinc. Judging by the rest of the devices I'm thinking it has to be anywhere between a 93 and a 96 for the year minted. 20191115_095453-ccfopt.jpg 20191101_012439-ccfopt.jpg 20191113_210710.jpg

    I don't think the 69-S is a match to the DDO3.

    The mint mark appears different because of the angle I took the photo see if this one is not a better match. Also markers on the reverse are a match.

    I don't think you have a match for the mintmark or the inner loop of the "6".

    One can think all they desire but thinking won't make it reality. Grease or other debris when it was struck. Period.

    Kind of looks like it though. Could it maybe be?
    Look at the comparison pictures.

    OP said, "Also markers on Reverse are a Match", Can we see those?

    The OP posted a "side-by-side" of the date. I guess it could be a later die state, but the inside of the loop of the "6" is different, and so is the inside of the top loop of the mintmark.
