View attachment 1092806 View attachment 1092806 View attachment 1092805 So when in doubt, I turn to you all at Coin Talk, because I know I can trust your input on the coins I have questions about, so thank you all for that! Tonight I was searching through my change and stumbled across this odd looking penny. It literally looks like Lincoln is looking through some old opera glasses at first look lol, but the more I studied it with magnifying glasses, I realized that wasn’t the case. To me it looked like extra metal in 6 little bumps...kinda like a glitch, hopefully in the machine? I’m curious if someone might have any insight at all, it would be gratefully appreciated on this end thank you so much!

    Hello. Your pictures don't show.
    But since the issue you have described is on a Copper Plated Zinc Cent I will say that it could be a Linear Plating Bubble that may look like opera glasses near his eye.
    Unless it is a counterstamp of somethiing that looks like opera glasses.

    So this thread is being a pain honestly, I can not upload pictures, and the ones I had won’t show up, also can’t get it to delete, so I made a different thread under the forum, What’s it Worth? And headline is...
    Help-1989 Lincoln Cent coin with discrepancy by his eye

    maybe you might be able to tell what it is then. Sorry about that, and thank you!
