    Look at this on eBay
    1921-S Lincoln Wheat Penny Cent // Uncirculated (red) // (W1911)

    I would like to hear what others think... I am suspicious about this sellers coins and part of me thinks they may have been ‘cleaned’. The coins this seller has listed look strangely different from other red uncirculated Lincoln cents of that era currently on eBay. Do you think they have been cleaned or is the difference due to photography Thnaks!

    Rim looks damaged. As if it were taken out of a Bezel.

    Uncirculated cents should have Some luster and no wear. The surface of this one is too rough. The color seems suspicious.

    For one that big gouge by Lincolns nose screams circulated. That Wheat is worth .76¢ tops. I've got true uncs and you can very much tell a difference.

    I tried my best to use the same camera setup as this seller. It shines so much its hard to focus on it though.

    The coin is NOT Uncirculated. It is whizzed and MAY even be a counterfeit. Too hard to be sure from the image.

    It looks cleaned and retoning. Thecrim looks odd and I'm not seeing luster. Stay away from it.

    Far from being an uncirculated coin and the seller should know that. I also agree with @paddyman98 that the rim is damaged and could be due to being removed from a bezel.

    I think it was in a bezel, and I think it was Bronzed or antiqued.
