something looks odd on the "FG"?
What do you think it is?
Life is way too short for that kind of scrutiny.
Yes, falls more into the area of "manufacturing variance" than error, at least for me.
Big, blurry photos prevent any real chance of analysis. Sharp photos are a must for this kind of thing.
Problems with the Designers Initials prompted the Mint to have Frank Gasparro (Chief Engraver) prepare a new reverse for 1973. Unfortunately, the size of the FG was deemed too large, and Frank had to again prepare another new reverse for 1974.
Strange, really. This type of Mint nitpicking goes all the way back to 1909 when Victor David Brenner had his initials removed from the reverse of the Lincoln Cent. (That's another story).
No. It's a 1972 CENT. It says so in big letters on the reverse.
That’s one to see in hand
Looks like FG
Appears to be a slight malformation of the F.... could be die chip... Very minor and no numismatic premium. Cheers, RickO
