As I said before and pretty new on this, my acknowledgement is poor but, even I can tell that this coin has some things wrong, can you give your thoughts please maybe I'm wrong.
You all have a good night!

@gigi, that might be a die chip on the corner of the Lincoln memorial, but the W in WE is just damaged.

@Spence did you saw the ring of the front? That is not normal I think, and de letters "we trust" is on the very top, plus if and not wrong the t of the trust is a lil far, in an addition in my eye the 1966 seems to be crooked.
Can you check again and let me know please?

I see a common coin which has some minor insignificant die chips/die deterioration issues and some hits in circulation. None of the issues mentioned above are collectible in most cases and do not add value to the coin.

@gigi, yes I see what you are talking about and still think this is normal circulation wear, perhaps on a cent struck with a tired die. The spacing of letters seems normal to me—try comparing with another cent.

As you continue learning, I recommend you check out error-ref.com, which is an excellent website showing what mint errors look like. Also, later today @coop will likely comment on this thread and they have a wealth of information linkable in their signature line.

IGWT being near the rim is normal for that year. I suggest you read and bookmark this http://www.error-ref.com/ and buy a Red Book and read it for the info not the values,so a used one will be fine.

Hello again - I found your other post - This coin here is just showing its age again. It just got all beat up and too a lot of circulation hits denting the design elements. and it does look to have a chip at the corner of the memorial.

1. Incuse marks on a coin are 99% of the time, damage to the coin. (No premium for damage on a coin)
2. As the dies wear on these coins, the metal moves in the rim direction. I see that on the motto devices. (No premium for die wear on a coin)
3. A slightly known fact is that the Lincoln Cent obverses are distorted because of the a spread on the master hub that over the years, started to swell. This is seen on cents up to 1969. The master hub was replaced in 1969 and retired the old master hub. These are used to created the master die and the working hubs And working dies:

So several years they were enhancing the master dies created by this master hub in different ways. Altering the appearance of coins through the year. That is why the devices are touching the rims also. Other years showed different master die doubling/alterations through the years. So with this being common, all cents created those years are all alike, making them all just normal coins. That is also an issue you are seeing on your coin.
4. The '1' is showing die polishing from a die clash issue. Some digits can be really altered, but again, they are just a die event, not a die variety.
The same is the same issue for the top of the head. The fields on the die (outside part of the die) were over polished and now the devices are suffering from from field reduction.

So all the events on your coin are totally normal die events, except of the contact marks that happen during circulation. While a lot is going on with your coin, there is no premium for any of these events. While there are doubled dies on some of these dies, your coin was struck by a normal die and damaged in circulation.

Thank you! I'm learning from you, google, but I don't know why for me is very difficult see the difference, for example DDO and DDR are very confused to me.

@gig, if you are having trouble understanding the difference between DDO and DDR, it is just a matter of location. Both a doubled dies, but the DDO had a doubled die on the front (obverse) of the coin while the DDR has the doubled die on the back (reverse) of the coin. During the striking process, one obverse die and one reverse die are used.

And don't forget the third die.

Seeing a coin with a side by side of a normal or a certain variety, will help train your eyes as to what you are seeing/aren't seeing. Thus the side by side feature I use a lot (and conceived) to help the eyes see the differences better. Thus your eyes become smarter as to what you are seeing. Interesting coins should be set aside to be reviewed later. Finish the roll or session and later take another look. Maybe it something or nothing. See a lot of coins will help train your eyes.
