    The "die gouge" doesn't look like it's in the same location. Can you tell us the weight of your coin? If it's 3.11 you have a winner or a counterfeit. For your sake I hope it's 3.11 grams and not a counterfeit. :)

    See if a magnet is attracted that cent @Shaylee. In case you haven't noticed, the folks here are much more interested in that cent appearing to be copper rather than a potential die gouge.

    Oh, I am going to have to sit and watch this! We may have found the 13th copper 43!

    It will sometimes make a steel look like copper depending upon the background.

    Mapping the genuine 43 D copper and overlaying it on the OP can only tell you one thing, whether they were struck from the same die. They aren't the mintmark position tell us that. It can't give any insight into whether or not the OP coin is a copper 1943 D cent. (Unless the date position had been off as well in which case we would know it was a counterfeit.) If a second genuine 43 D copper cent were to turn up, I would NOT expect it to be from the same die pair.

    As far as the "gouge" the pictures are pixelated enough that I don't see it.

    Yes you are correct. But the OP appears to be using the die gouge on their 1943 D cent as a die marker comparing it to a gouge on the real 1943 D copper cent image presented in their post. The two coins in the OP are not struck from the same obverse die.

    As the source of copper ‘43’s should have been stray planchets retained somewhere in the system, wouldn’t we largely expect each real copper ‘43 to come from different dies, rending things like die gouges irrelevant in ID’ing a real copper ‘43?

    I'm beginning to think the OP doesn't have a copper 1943 D Lincoln Cent. All she would have to do is show the weight or results of the "magnet test" to us. How many time have we seen it here on Coin Talk with someone claiming they found a rare, or special coin, then never hearing from them again? :rolleyes:

    Surprisingly, this is the second 1943 copper cent I've read about today. I'm not even looking for this coin. It just seems people are finding them in droves.

    I've also found all 5 of the 1885 Trade Dollars on 2 Youtube video's. It's amazing all the rare coins appearing out of the blue. Perhaps AliExpress made some sales. Heck, one person who had a "genuine" 85 TD also had an 1870 and 71 TD. Now that's rare, I tell you what. :wacky:
