    Oh, we're playing a guessing game?

    I think it really is a 1996 Lincoln cent.

    What do I win??

    Yeah, it's a 1996 1c, and those are Lincoln's eyes and ears, but what's so special about it?

    John Wexler single squeeze.

    The ear seems to have sat on the ear which would pull another middle image rotated counterclockwise due to uneven seating on the ear.

    I at least cannot say the ear assessment is accurate, that is the rotational span the two eye bags ended up in, if it was to be what can be seen as needing explanation, and one part fits, then the other should too.

    Y'all can't see the inner ear hub doubling from the unaligned image doubling? I thought that would be easy.
