    Looks like the speared date variety. B)

    Yes, the thread title failed to ask a question or point readers to anything beyond the obvious. And it’s possible that the (new?) poster is another in a long line of recent trolls. However, why not initially give him/her the benefit of the doubt, without making wisecracks?

    At least the pictures show that the coin exhibits something unusual at the date area, rather than the typically seen circulation damage or intentional abuse. In case that area of the coin was the reason for the post, it looks to be die gouges. “A die gouge can be defined as any foreign object, rubbed, scraped, dropped or punched into the die, whether on purpose or accident, that creates a mark in the die. It will strike the coin and create a raised area the same shape and size as the gouge.”

    No comment about the coin. You oughta give more than five minutes to a tyro before we derail the train. My unanswered question in the coin roll hunting thread is a good target.

    @Zollarsdollars... Welcome aboard. Your cent has what appears to be die gouges by the date. Not a significant issue and no numismatic premium. Cheers, RickO

    Not to prolong (although I am) a possible dubious post, to my eyes the gouges follow a strange parallel track opposite Abe's lapel. Interesting although not earth-shaking.
