    What do you guys think? If not a dd what's with the very obvious separation lines? picture_2019_8_15_17_16_25_413.jpg DSC_1586.JPG DSC_1565.JPG DSC_1565.JPG _20190817_233825.JPG DSCPDC_0002_BURST20190815165921870_COVER.JPG _20190817_233906.JPG DSC_1568.JPG _20190817_233930.JPG DSCPDC_0003_BURST20190815170012221_COVER.JPG _20190817_234001.JPG

    Honestly it looks like you have the same problem I have had in the past which is the glare off a shiny coin can do some weird stuff to a usb scope. But lets ask someone who\s better at these than I. @Rick Stachowski

    No. The Denver Mint alone produced more than 5 Billion, 287 Million of these cents. Those dies were blown to smithereens! In my opinion, what you are seeing is the result of die deterioration. In the field of the obverse, you can see (the lines) how hard they were scrubbing that die at the end of its life. JMHO

    It's made from zinc with tired worn over used dies. This is normal looking for Zinc Cents. Lots of plating blisters as well.
