    @Nano meza From the very weak LDS reverse and ;likewise the late die stage punch on the obverse by definition makes it a 1922 weak D with a huge die crack(looks like the die pair was about tp blow)or PMD but a Weak D nonetheless! "All 1922 Lincoln Wheat Cents (Pennies) were minted at the Denver Mint and should have received a "D" mint mark. An issue arises at the Denver Mint where the coin dies used to strike coins were being overworked and overused. Some coins would receive a weak "D" mint mark and in some very rare cases the mint mark would be completely missing. The rest of the coin features would have a weaker strike as well since the dies were so worn out. The "No D" variety is the rarest and most valuable. The penny is automatically classified as a "Weak D" variety if there are any traces of the "D" mint mark. Some coins will have a "Strong Reverse" or a "Strong Obverse" which means that the worn out dies were just replaced with new ones."

    I wouldn't even call the OP coin a weak D. And your "die pair 2 or half of it" is just a worn obv paired with a much newer rev. there is nothing to say that either of those dies was used for the "die pair 2 noD"

    It's a 1922-D well worn Cent with a nice die crack along Lincoln's back. Not what I would call a weak D either.

    That's not a die crack on the back of the OP coin, it's a scratch.

    The penny is automatically classified as a "Weak D" variety if there are any traces of the "D" mint mark.

    The 1922 cent was only minted in Denver hence by your classisifaction all of them would be weak D's. Please do a little more research on this date.

    If that were true then EVERY 22 D is a "weak D".

    They are "weak D" if there is no D or just a trace of a D and they are not from Die Pair 2 (Because only on die pair 2 was the D completely removed from the obv die) The D on the OP coin is much too strong to be considered a "weak D". It is NOT just a trace.

    Your Funny @funnycoins
    Hang around for a while.
    It's easy to get confused when you are new to coins and Varietys.

    The D in the OP seems pretty strong to me.
    If that yellow color is what it looks like, that's too bad.
