1982 D Small date, 3.1 wt. copper Lincoln Cent with filtered photos.

emeraldATVemeraldATV Posts: 3,898 ✭✭✭✭✭

Found in coin rolls from the bank.
I'm just getting around to this little guy as it's been here a few years. Many photos with trial and error to bring out the best way to present a clear look at what took me a few hours to capture and define the coins travels.
One D south of the nine. One (big) D southeast of the two. One D where it should have been placed, south of the date, but kinda small. (?)
All are raised about 70 -85 % of what they should be showing. I do have other photos that are on point and clear.
No doubt about it, but would this pass the grade with a D ?
The coin ? Not to shabby. I do have better whole coin photos, but lets start with the research first.

    You wrote “…but let’s start with the research first.”

    But it appears that you didn’t start (or end up) doing research. Because if you had researched misplaced or dropped mint-marks, you would have learned that they must be actual mint-marks, not other types of marks or damage. Your pictures make it obvious that there aren’t any extra actual mint-marks on your coin. So, you don’t get a “D”, you get an “F” for your grade.

    Don't have to rub my face in it. I didn't do it.

    You know better. Such nonsense can only mislead newbies and lead to confusion and frustration.

    Not every "D" shaped damage is an actual "D".

    And not all "D" shaped objects, whether actual letters or damage, are mint marks.

    My interests when starting this thread were well thought out.
    Confusion or misleading never entered my mind until now. I'm not a drama oriented type of person. Cut and dry.
    My photo's won't let me close the book on this D over P researched coin.
    Profit or financial gain, seems to fuel the misleading confusion mentioned, which to me, is the drama, I don't want to be a part of.
    On a lighter note.
    Dose anyone here have a matching set of the 1982 Lincoln Cent ?
    Reason is, maybe I can help as I have many.
    Maybe that was my goal ? I know it's a plug, lol
    A reva derchie.

    emeraldATV, you have been here over 5 years, how is it that you haven't learned anything about coins? :/

    What is the fascination with PMD?

    Just trying to understand. ;)

    Yup.
    So lets take a step back to Kool things down a bit. I love the magenta toning this one has. (Large Date)

    Photo could be better as in hand.
