    Ok...plz help me out and play along,your opinion and expertise are very important here.
    I promise you,there is a reason behind all of this...which may or may not have a big impact on the numismatic community.(reaching a bit). Its simple..

    Tell me 5 things that you know are FACTS about this penny based on what you see in the photos according to your knowledge of coins....

    The date is covered for a reason.
    Plz excuse my professional photos,i tried my best.(not rly)

    For example...
    It is a penny...its damaged...its a proof coin...ect...

    More detailed facts are appreciated,and all play a factor in the conclusion and reason behind this post.
    For the record,I posted this in error coins for a reason,this isnt spam or me trolling. Thx to all who participate.Ill tell everyone why I'm doing this after some solid replys.

    ..and...go.

    1. It's a Lincoln Cent
    2. It's been circulated
    3. It's been damaged
    4. It was struck between 1959-1982
    5. It has environmental damage

    6. I'm rather skeptical of what you think you are doing, or that you're going to get many answers here.

    1. I cant handle it
    2. I don't know if it's real or fake
    3. I don't know ow if it's a ceramic sculpture
    4. It could be a million things besides a penny
    5. A picture really just tells as much as the photographer tells you about the picture.

    All that could be true assuming it is an actual penny.

    Facts are facts,not assumptions. Those 5 are spot on accurate.

    I'm not ripping on your post, I apologise if ibseemed snide,but like seattlite I naturally question everything that isnt in my presence and able to see ,feel ,hear taste or smell, sometimes that's not even enough. Can u ask what is the nature of your experiment?

    Sure,I'm trying to get facts on the coin without showing the date and mm to eliminate any discrimination or predetermined assumptions on possibility. So,I thought I'd make it fun...either I'll look crazy and be wrong,or discover something new.

    Wait, don't make me the end poster. I only gave my opinion of the cent.
    This is your thread.
    What say you?

    Interesting experiment.

    I'm not absolutely sure that the obverse and reverse are the same coin, based on the photographs alone.

    I also have no idea who owns or possesses the coin. This coin could belong to Beyoncé for all I know, though, unless she really appreciates low grade coins, she could probably afford a better example.

    It's easier to say what I don't know about the coin that what I do know.

    I do know, at least I'm decently sure, that the images have been altered in different ways, judging by the shape and placement of the black blobs. The coin itself could be completely manufactured, again, based only on the photos.

    Despite my skepticism. I'm interested to see where you take this and am curious to see the answers. I almost wanted to wait to allow people who are a little more loose with their opinions/terminology chime in, as I feel like I might've steered the direction of the discussion.

    It seems to me to be a test of individuals experience. Some, who see anything and everything may be inclined to add something that is not actually there. Like Jesus on a potato chip. Or an extra letter or numeral that could not possibly happen. Not for me, sorry to say.
