I picked this one up a while back and just thought I'd share some pictures.
All comments are welcome and opinions on the grade please? Thanks in advance.

Cheers, Bill

Yep, nice coin. I never used to look at leaf #1 before I found my first of these ... now I always do because the underpunches top & inside are sometimes fairly faint. As Doug said, too bad about the Obv chink.

Love that particular coin and yours is fabulous!

Grade = a heck of a lot better than mine.
- About two score and seven+ years ago, I began a Lincoln cent collection. I have all, most in AU or better & am upgrading to MS as possible.
- I collect all coins minted 1809, 1859, 1909, 1959, and 2009. Lincoln and C.Darwin were both born in 1809. The latter published his "On the Origin of Species.." in 1859, the Lincoln cent debuted in 1909, and after that it just seemed like a good way to show the evolution of US coinage. Most non-nums to whom I've shown these react with the phrase, "I had no idea!" That alone shows their worth.
- I've completed MS sets of Jeffersons & MS specimens of other 5 nickels; Franklins done. Roosies mostly done. I enjoy hunting for WLH and "winged liberty" dimes.
-- If I left my early Washington quarter book at one of y'alls house, please ring me up.

I appreciate all the comments and Ya that chink seems to be the only real drawback on this coin as the rest is just regular circulation wear.
It actually shows on the pictures to be worse then what it looks in hand.
The pictures were brightened and this makes the blemish look as if it's fresh, in hand there's no glare and it not near as noticeable or distracting.

Again many thanks.

Cheers, Bill
