    This coin has heavy die abrasion on obverse in front of face from top of nose down to bust and right to the rim. There is a 7 above nose in the field. It can't be a dropped element since there is no 7 in the date. The bottom part of the well formed 7 is almost completely missing do to die abrasion.

    On the planchet and it's not raised so it's nothing.

    It looks like another coin may have bumped against this one. Just because something on a coin is not raised don't throw it away.

    Just curious. If you think it's something worth keeping, I'd appreciate your opinion on what you think it is. Thank you. (I'm always willing to learn). :)

    What other coin would have a 7 that huge?
    That is not a image from another coin. If that were the case it would be incused and backwards.
    Common sense!.. That is just another example of Paredolia. Looks like something familiar but it is not.

    Don't throw it away.. Spend it!

    No. Definitely not a clash.

    Just about anything you find interesting to you may be worth keeping

    I am keeping it. The other pics are for comparison. I am cool with pareidolia that others can also see. I don't know what caused this, but it sure looks like a 7. The style of 7 appears to be alike and the size is a little different; my coin's 7 is a little larger.

    Pareidolia . There was only one size and font used in that year lincolns. 2. If you look at it sideways it is the roof of the 2009 log cabin reverse. :) Jim

    I was thinking that it was a wing clash from a Washington quarter.

    Very timely on that one. If you didn't say it, I was.:woot:

    I found a cent that has about the same looking thing that is on this coin. It is below the word Liberty and 7 shaped.This is raised up and I traced it down as maybe being a clash from the top edge of the building . Nothing else anywhere on the coin.

    The difference is, "I think I see a 5 on the cheek"(pareidolia) versus I and you and others see the 7 or what appears to be a 7. By the way I don't see the 5 on the cheek.

    There is no difference. The so called 5 is present, it is just not what some people think it is. This is exactly like your so called 7. And yet again it is not what you think it is.

    That's what I do. If it is interesting to me, I throw in a 2 X 2 and note why it is interesting to me.
