I have a 1986 D 1 cent us penny. On the back of the penny where it has the United States Of America- The last S on the States only shows it was half struck, and there is not an O for the O in Of. and the f in the word Of is only partially struck. There are some defects as well on the front of the coin, some missing or bubbles in the metal. I will work on getting a picture. But from the missing O, does this have any value other then face value?
thanks

I think we need pics, by the sound of it it might be a grease filled die but if there is bubbles on the front it might just be environmental damage.

Early Zincolns had trouble with bubbling in between the copper coating and zinc planchet... '83-'86, but the mint seemed to have figured out and fixed this problem by 1987. Snap some photos and post them.

....and to the CCF

to CCF. Sorry to say it has no added value.Keep looking though there are plenty of coins out there with added value just waiting to be found.Good luck with your search.

From the pics it looks abused...maybe with a straight on pic with better lighting a different opinion might result..wait for a bright day, take the pic in open shade (not in the sunlight) and the image will improve greatly.

...and try not to image a brown coin on a brown background. It doesn't help the image...

You reminded me of an interesting Lincoln I have so I made a little quiz...(separate thread)

Because it is to minor of an error and in bad condition, IMHO.

Small portions of the design obscured by a clogged die strike are quite common and are an acceptable part of the minting process, that is why there is no value. The bubbles are from corrosion in the zinc core, very common on 1980s Zincolns.

Also, the area in question is directly opposite the lower half of Lincoln's portrait, which is a high point on the coin. It is common for the area opposite this on the reverse to be weakly struck. I just pulled a 1987 out of my pocket that has similar weakness to what the original poster was describing. Very, very common, so no value.
