If you have a weak stomach, don’t look at the photos below. You are about to see a photo depicting a really nasty staple scratch. It is bad enough that the scratch happened to a coin but this scratch basically trashed a classic key date Lincoln cent. Whoever did this, couldn’t have positioned the scratch any worse. It is right through the 1914 date pointing to the D mint mark. This scratched 1914-D was purchased from Teletrade in an ANACS slab for my Dansco Lincoln Cent album. A few years later, it was removed from the Dansco & ANACS slabbed it again. ANACS gave it precisely the same net grade both times. When your stomach settles, guess the ANACS grade. Very best regards, Collect89 Always be careful to avoid staple scratches when removing a coin from a 2x2.
