    not sure what kind of error this is, it doesnt look like circulation damage to me. the cheek seems to extend dramatically to the eye. would this qualify as a variety?

    Welcome to C.T. Looks normal to me. Maybe I'm missing something.

    Don't see anything unusual.

    I see Die Deterioration on a Copper plated Cent. Could also be a bit of Environmental Damage affecting Lincoln's cheek.
    Edit*.. Overpolished Die affect on the cheek is another thought

    In the close up of the cheek area I do not see anything out of the ordinary. Enlarged it becomes over pixilated so I can tell nothing. In general this date/MM was produced rather well overall with the exception of plating bubbles. What I did find on this same coin, going through a roll recently, was over polishing of the inner ear area, with much of the details missing.

    For reference... The angle of lighting can affect which elements of the design are more prominent.

    thanks to all for responding... the photo doesnt do it justice for sure.. basically the cheek is thicker and seems oddly shaped but if I new I was right I wouldnt need to post. My question i guess, is if it is some kind of error, what kind??? Although Im starting to think the error isnt on Lincolns head but in mine. So heres a couple more photos. ......

    Also I want to say I find it amazingly kind that people here will share there knowledge and expertise with a total stranger, so thanks again.......
