    I think first we may need to vote on whether that's a Lincoln. ;)

    It looks like an ancient Roman coin.

    Even if there is an "S" under the date, the coin is almost worthless.

    I'm not sure of your "S" but I found something similar, a 191x-S Lincoln.
    Not worth anything but still nice and interesting to find in the wild :smile:

    Oh Ya...............it also has a nice square hole in the center :smile:
    But I still love it :smile:

    @KollectorKing
    You are correct about the hole :smile:
    Now I'm torn as to which one I like better :smile:

    The one with the hole was likely nailed over a front door..... old superstition was nailing a coin over the door would 'welcome money in'...and square nails were common.... Cheers, RickO
