    Hello everyone,

    Been a long time since I have been on this site, it's been a long time since I've looked at coins as well. I decided to search through some old pennies this weekend and was hoping someone could tell me if these pennies I found are called floating roof's? And also if the FG is missing on one of these coins? I know the coins are not in good shape but hoping you can tell from pictures if any of these are floating roof's and no FG.

    I would appreciate your thoughts, thank you.

    All look like they are "floating roof", but they are too blurry and not close enough to tell about the "no FG". I think you should give #4 a decent burial.

    As you probably already know, floating roof and missing designers initials are due to over polishing the dies to hopefully keep them in service. As the dies are continuously polished, they begin loosing details in the devices. NAV IMHO, or: no added value in my humble opinion.

    Floating roofs and no FG are just minor die abrasion events. Part of the normal aging process of a die to have finer details removed with use, and should not carry any premium in my opinion.
