I don't have enough experience to determine if that T is missing enough for the 'RUST' variety, though...
Welcome to Cointalk!
Thank you so much!
Welcome to CT.
@kaseh, welcome to CT! Close on the quarter but I don't think it is quite there...
A couple images i pulled from the web of this error and the T is basically completely gone, on your example I can still see it fairly clearly...
Great point! I wasn’t sure if the different angles of the coin made a difference honestly... it’s super visible as is and barely there at a different angle. I appreciate the info!!
I’m just trying to learn the ropes
Close but not close enough; good thing I enjoy searching
@kaseh to CT. Always glad to have a new member that is willing to listen and learn.
Your questions have already been answered, so all I can do is offer some advice.
For the best results, you should post "in focus," FULL IMAGE photos (after you upload your photo, two buttons appear: Thumbnail and Full Image, click Full Image and your photo appears full size on your post and are easily enlarged by clicking on it). Photograph coins on neutral backgrounds like black, grey, or white. Crop out superfluous background so just the coin shows (you can use https://www.remove.bg for free), and post photos with correct orientation so members don't have to turn their computer in some awkward fashion to view it properly. While it isn’t always necessary, it is nice to show both the obverse and reverse, even if your question is just about one side. Members can often give more valuable information having both sides to evaluate. Add close ups of areas you have questions about and make your questions as definitive as possible so we know what you are asking for. And try to have the best lighting possible to show the most favorable photo of the coin. Hope this helps in the future. Good luck.
This is also the case with weakly struck or missing letters in “ONE CENT” on the reverse of the wheat back cent. There was only enough metal to fill Lincoln’s jacket.
@kaseh nice pictures, but cropping and posting full image helps...
That’s my son! He’s 2, and the light of my life
Are you saying I didn’t upload ideally or that I should post uncropped pics. Want to make sure I understand!
When you have the images on your PC, crop away all unnecessary background leaving only the coin. Then, when you have added them to your post, click on the Full Image button for each image.
You should crop your pictures and post full-size if you want to maximize your audience and responses. That's what I did for one of your photos. Just makes them easier to see.
Thank you for clarifying! I appreciate the advice.
