    Nah, he was clear enough when he said “any and all”. That’s fair enough. It’s just that there isn’t really much to comment on, as far as I can tell. It’s a 79-year-old Lincoln cent, and it got polished. That pretty much covers it. Maybe he’s just curious if there’s anything else about it. But there isn’t, as far as I see.

    When you post a common circulated wheat cent and offer nothing to focus the discussion, you can't expect much in return beyond some smart-aleck remarks.

    Surely you have some specific thoughts or questions about this coin. Why not share them? You might be surprised how many interesting and perhaps helpful comments you'll get in return.

    No need for the sarcasm. I can see it was a 1942 D Cent but I was asking to see a clear closeup of just the date and mint mark.

    Dis,
    No chewing here. Just requesting more specifics, that’s all. Take a look at other similar posts on CT. Most folks will post clear pictures and ask specific questions. And when the pictures don’t have the resolution or there’s not enough information provided by the OP, then people like myself will usually request more information.
    When you ask a specific question, for example, “I think the mint mark may be doubled, what do you guys think?”, then proceed to explain why and provide clear pictures, then you will likely get the answer you need.
    When you just basically ask “what do you think of my (low-resolution picture) coin?” with no additional details and then get defensive when asked for more information, you may not be happy with the responses you get.

    Thanks. Your post basically summarizes what just wrote. Wish I’d have read yours before writing mine!

    I come across lots of old but very shiny coins in my change at least once a week. I couldn't figure it out for a while why that was. Until I read a story about a famous hotel in my area (San Francisco) that has been washing change for decades. I'm pretty sure this is where the coins I sometimes come across are from. Perhaps this is why others post up old but very shiny coins too.
