    Shrews1994 KIND OF A BIG DEAL.

    It looks fake. His chin isn't right. Nose and the words up there are not correct. Looks fake. But I could be wrong.

    IDK if it is real or fake. What is going on with that triple rim? Just an MAD?
    The mint mark doesn't match with a genuine I am looking at, but it could be a different die.
    Reverse appears grainy.
    Date and MM appears to match with a known counterfeit.
    That fake coin has a die crack horizontal between the P and L on the reverse.
    I don't see that on yours, but that area seems obscured.

    3.11 grams is the weight, according to the seller. But red flag number 1 for me is the "I found this coin roll hunting" story...

    The reverse looks too fuzzy.

    I vote fake. All the lettering is bloated and rounded, and the rims are a mess. The interior of the mm is the wrong shape, and the mm is too close to the 9.

    The D is much closer to the 9 than what is normally seen.

    The motto on the rev. is mushy, something that is common in a cast coin.

    I don't like the mintmark position and the coin seems to have casting bubbles. I'm going fake.

    The lettering is sharper than the image of Lincoln and the wheat stalks. Uneven wear to me screams fake

    The overall look of this coin seems way off.

    It's fake. Obvious clue is the die chip on the inside of the left wheat stalk just above the U. This reverse die has been used on fakes of every key and semi-key in the Lincoln series. They probably have a hub with the chip on it because it has also been used to make fake SVDB reverses.
