    Hi everybody, I got a few questions about this coin. Is that a RPM? I can see something inside the circle that looks like part of the first D. Look at the first nine in the date then compare it to the second nine doesn't the first nine look thicker? B e r t y looks thicker than the li. The r and the s in trust looks thicker too. On the reverse look at the columns and bays. Lincoln too
    It's a 1959 so there's no zinc. Is extra thickness doubling is that doubling in the bay and columns thank you very much IMG_20231120_103238444.jpg IMG_20231120_192627076.jpg IMG_20231120_191756774.jpg

    Welcome to Coin Talk! After 64 years, there exists a high probability that all varieties for ‘59 LMC (RPMs and DDO/DDR) have been found and assigned or, conversely, discarded and ignored being considered too minor.

    Besides VV, go to John Wexler’s website, doubleddie.com. Read everything there, especially How Dies Are Made and Worthless Doubling. There is also a section on the classes of die doubling that is very helpful.

    And, for Lincoln cents go to lincolncentresource.com.

    Good Luck!…imo…Spark

    I believe what you see in the words and date are caused by a worn die. As for the mint mark, I’m not a collector of RPM’s.

    RPMs and DDO/DDRs are considered varieties, not errors.

    Go to error-ref.com to learn what true errors are…imo…Spark

    I agree with Collecting Nut, overuse of the dies causing movement of features on a coin to be moved generally from the center to the rim. Die deterioration doubling is the better name for it. Extremely large number of them occur unless they change the dies ( which is usually close to cracking) no + value.
