    Even though this is in the OGP, you can see the great strike. Pretty decent for a zincoln. The true color is more red and less yellow tint. Not bad for 30 years in pilofilm... DSCN4396~2.JPG DSCN4397~2.JPG

    I may be in the minority, but I love to see the statue of Lincoln on the reverse, good step horizontal lines and good pillar vertical lines for Memorials. Yours has all the attributes. Nice coin.

    I may have to cut this one out, rephotograph and put in an airtite.

    I think the mark in the field behind the bust could be a planchet flaw not fully struck out. This was very difficult to photograph. Have 2 sets, one indirect lighting on a raw coin the other in the airtite. Color is closest to the top photo... DSCN4430~2.JPG DSCN4431~3.JPG DSCN4423~2.JPG DSCN4418~2.JPG

    I’m not sure if this is a real real weak D or an actual no D. It was in an $82 eBay album. BE31622F-574D-4F31-AB92-51797D1EFB6F.jpeg

    I went to check the value on NGC Coin Explorer, and noticed on the plate coin photo that the first three digits are weak and the last 2 is sharp. Perhaps they had a master die that was wearing out and contained the digits 192, then punched in a sharp 2 to complete the date.

    From the plate coin:
    F2811D65-031A-49FE-A393-209428F18C11_1_201_a.jpeg

    Take wear and the photo into account, @BlackberryPie 's coin shows the same:
    D87F6539-2205-47F3-A14D-D7AC45B4A4AC_4_5005_c.jpeg

    It looks like you may have paid for this album 10 -15 times with this one coin!
