Is this an error or a variety? 1988 Lincoln cent no designer initials, missing Abraham Lincoln

Found a most unusual penny a while ago, it is an 88 cent however 2 things are missing, one the designer initials are no where to be found and also it is missing Abraham Lincoln whom is nowhere to be found. Is this considered mint error or variety? Would PCGS grade such a coin and put it coin the labels as missing initials and Lincoln? I can say I have come across 1 or 2 with no initials but missing Lincoln I think is a pretty big deal making it quite a rarity, wouldn't you think? I don't know how to put pictures up yet as soon as I figure it out I will put some images up
