    I'm new at this, but even I can see alot going on with this penny. Will you guys impart your wisdom and tell me what you see? This way I can see if I'm learning anything or if I should go back to ceramics. Pardon my bad photography please. 20191119_071252-0-0.jpg 20191119_071235-0-0.jpg

    To help you learn, tell us what you think you see and where on the coin. Not bad pictures BTW! icon_smile_thumbsup.gif

    That's actually really good photography by comparison to what we're used to seeing.

    For comparison, what would a 62 year old ceramic pot (or anything else) look like after constant use with minimal care whilst changing hands thousands of times ? And keep in mind, copper is a lot softer than ceramic.

    There is a "BIE" in the word " LIBERTY" on the obverse.
    This is a rather common die break on Wheat cents from
    1945-1958. On the reverse there are several scratches
    including a huge one thru the "UN" of "UNITED". The
    rim dings that are noticeable on the reverse are distracting.
    So in revue, the "BIE" is a plus. The other mentioned
    items are a big negative. Value of your cent is one cent.

    If you ask my wife, I do something of value every once
    in a while. Kinda like the blind squirrel finding an acorn.

    I thought your test was for the OP? Tibor is not the OP.

    "Reach out and touch someone. Anyone!"
    Last time I did I spent three weeks in the county lock-up.
