    This 1983 Lincoln appears to be un-plated. Could use some help determining if it left the mint this way.

    Has flow lines, luster and cartwheels. Sharp details.
    Blob of copper on the obverse and minimal traces around the edges. Zinc zits are present.

    Would think it’s been stripped because of the zits, but the sharp details and flow lines/cartwheel seems to suggest it wasn’t plates.

    Looks plated to me. The third photo shows copper on the die crack. Looks like it's toned from the environment.

    It has had the copper plating stripped off, the "zits" rough surfaces prove it. And there is no cartwheel luster to this coin.
