I found this 1994 P LMC with what looks like an extra pillar in the 12th column that doesn't quite match the known DDR variety. The coin is in BU condition, could there be something here? Should I send it in for attribution or toss it? Thanks in advance :)
I found this 1995 P LMC with Machine doubling on both sides but also has significant distortion of the lettering particularly on the obverse. I haven't seen this before, is this common? Thanks in advance :)
I found this 1974 P Lincoln cent with a unique rainbow toning covering Lincolns bust, It looks like it might have been caused by some type of liquid exposure. Has anyone seen one like this before? The colors on it are quite beautiful, would it have any premium value? Thanks in advance :)
I found this 1968 S LMC that appears to be an RPM-001 although the mint mark position looks ever so slightly different. Would this still be considered RPM-001 or possibly another variety not yet listed? Thanks so much for your help :)
This 1936 Wheat cent has extra thickness on E Pluribus consistent with several of the DDR varieties but the circulation flattening is making it difficult to tell which one. I'm thinking it looks most like DDR-002 because of the extra thickness in the A's in America.
@NumismaticFTW please read my entire previous comment. I clarified that I understand that this coin is not a proof. And I am very grateful for the expert advice and feedback I receive in this forum which is why I continue to post my questions here. If I had any doubts that this coin was not a proof, I would clearly state it, I certainly wouldn't beat around the bush. I have 100% faith in, and a deep respect for the expertise in this community. Reading comments in their entirety prevents them from being taken out of context.
The images on the PCGS website don't show a circulated proof wheat cent, and there doesn't seem to be any helpful examples via google search either. I'm a bit perplexed, I tried to recreate this polishing result on a business strike, to the best of my ability, and mine was nowhere near as glossy as this coin. The difference is most evident in the hard to reach crevices around the detail areas. I do understand that this coin is not a proof, I'm just amazed at the quality and effort that went into polishing it.
