    You took an image using a digital microscope of part of a Cent and have shown it to us on this thread.

    With this photo I will guess plating issue or feeder finger scrapes.

    I would venture to say this is a newer minted cent, so a Zincoln, which has many anomalies, which is why I don't bother to look closely at them. NAV

    You do have a vivid imagination don't you? That's a known weak spot on the Cent and it was minted with grease on the Die. There are millions of cents that have this appearance but taking a ES and turning it into a 52 is strictly your own imagination.

    I'd like to know how she cut those slits on the shoulders of her top without touching her skin.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    If you look at the obverse immediately opposite the weak Letters, you'll see Lincoln's shoulder. It takes a lot of metal movement during striking to fill that area. If the processing parameters are a little off, the metal doesn't completely fill the letters on the reverse. It's not uncommon to see weakness in this area on the reverse.

    Someone is using an electric grinder without proper safety equipment.

    Yes but that equipment isn't safety equipment.

    They look more like "Accessories" to me.
