    It's a shiny greaser, IMO. Grease filled die, but nice and shiny. :)

    Looks like it's missing some letters

    That is a beautiful example of a coin struck with grease filling parts of the die, hence the name, Greaser or grease filled die. Pretty amazing that it was put aside so many years ago and has survived 83 years. Did you acquire it from a collector or purchase it?
    BTW @dwhiz's comment is due to you not being clear on your posted question. It is helpful when the poster can describe what they would like help with. "What
    does anyone think about this shiny piece? will more likely get silly answers. I think it is old and shiny, what else did you want to know? If you just want to share a coin, please say so in your beginning question/statement.

    I must say I was just in one of those moods this morning, normally I would just ignore these type of threads, but the 1969-S are the worst

    It's a well taken care of Cent. The obverse is a slight MAD and the reverse is a greaser.
