*** Moved by Staff to a more appropriate forum. ***

The fishing rods are packed away and the pennies are out. Continuing my educational winter time coin journey.

First cool find of the winter from the summer collection bucket.
Zincoln (2.5 g) struck through capped die? It looks a lot like the other cents posted on CCF. Tried to zoom the date area with no luck. The zOrb cant get the whole coin in the shot. I can make out the 19 with a loop but can't make out the rest. Photo's good enough for a second opinion?




Strong reverse.

Danny

I would say you have a winner there, the obverse side has multiple partial light strikes of the reverse in various orientations all over it. If you keep an open mind you can see the lower right of the memorial multiple times.

Fishing rods put away? Oh, man! Here in western Washington State the fishing never stops. I caught a 15 lb steelhead the other day and it was so cold ice was forming on my rod tip.

Anyway, the coin looks awesome. Nice find!

Can you get a full, straight on shot of the obverse? I'm on the fence based on these pics.

That's one for an expert like Mike Diamond, I can't be 100% sure, but it look promising.

Looks like a deteriating die cap.

Some have asked about my images I use and I'm glad to say, I've completed an Educational DVD of these. Become a supporter of this site, send me your address and I will send you a DVD. Many have loved this so far. I just completed version 11. The most updated version yet. So if you haven't got a copy yet, it is a good time to do so. I also have a DVD and one for windows media player. The one for media player is nice for your computer as it is clearer in images. Let me know which you would prefer. If you are a new member and wish the DVD, make your donation and have them pass on to me where you would like this shipped. Most have really appreciated this to increase the coin knowledge. Thanks for your support!

Yes, it was struck through an obverse die cap. Since the ghost of Lincoln is faint, it was probably not struck by a late-stage die cap. Instead, it was probably struck through a uniface die cap, i.e., one that never had any design on its working face.

Thanks for looking.

I named him leather-face. From a distance Lincoln kinda looks likes he's wearing a Texas Chainsaw Massacre leather face mask.
