    Nice and clear separation on tail and rear leg all the way up to rump area. Is obverse a lamanation caused by outside source?

    Flat and shelf-like = machine doubling.

    Remember this date is a 'single squeeze' die production so really there is no way it can be doubled, although many collectors and variety experts do continue to list them occasionally by their interpretations of characteristics.
    Wexler and Flynn in their great book " Authoritative Reference on Lincoln Cents 2nd ed." list such as Class IX God Only Knows , which I think is quite appropriate. My meager opinion is that such is still MD, although if people want to collect them thats their thing. IMI, Jim

    Thanks everyone and can put this under MD catagory to hold and use as a visual reference.

    Didn't want to mention that in post and have it deleted. But as saying goes...One person's wiener is just a hot dog to the mint...lol

    Its just kind of funny. Hey, not stating anything that isnt obvious. I suppose if the thing offends me I can try to find a coin that has a grease filled weiner or over polished weiner so I dont have to see it. Sorry, cant resist 2nd grade humor sometimes. Seriously, I would love to read that description on Variety Vista or Wexlers. Especially if it were a Doubled Die... I could hear the arguments here "Thats just machine doubling....its flat and shelf like"
