Cherry picked my own inventory!

Many years ago I set back a box of lincolns to be worked on later. Well today I moved that box for the hundredth time and while looking through it quickly I noticed this lincoln cent

1917 DDO.

I was pretty surprised honestly.

Any grade opinions?

My camera takes terrible pictures I swear it seems like the better the rest of the phone gets the worse the camera gets

    Excellent!! 👍

    I've doubled check my inventory on more then one occasion and have found things I didn't know I had.

    I bought this straight graded 39-S years ago and broke it out for my Washington Dansco album. It was there for years, until I went back and started double checking coins more closely. It was a DDO.

    I submitted it to ANACS. The only problem, it came back one grade less. 😖

    There are some odd looking scratches on the bowtie and lapel. Possibly tooled, but don't know why somebody would do that.

    Soory, I need to see both sides of a coin before I attempt to grade it. But, Congrats on this oreat find!!! I love this DDO, I have never found one in any wheat cent search or coin roll search. Ok a one sided call - VF obverse.
    Show us the Reverse!!

    I’m not a Lincoln guy, but even I understand that to be a sweet find… congrats.
    I’d give the obverse a VF-30 grade if it straight grades, however the light damage on Abe’s lapel and bow tie might ‘details’ it.
