So I came across this possible error on a 1999 Close AM Lincoln cent. Between the A and M is a raised bubble. I've done some looking but can't find anything similar. I only have a 10x triplet so I couldn't get super fine detail but from me moving a light aroi nd and it cast a small shadow. That is how I determined it was a raised bubble. What do you guys think and have you seen it before?

to CCF. The P mint should be a CAM. It is the WAM with the P mint mark that is the error.

I'm strictly talking about the bubble between the A and M. Other than that it is a normal 1999 no mint mark

Maybe playing bubbles, when air gets trapped during the copper plating.
Or maybe some debri got on the coin during plating?

Your last pic is quite nice. The anomaly you have pointed out would be one of three things , a plating bubble , a die chip , or a die dent. While these can be interesting , the size and location of the anomaly on your coin carries little collector interest other than an excellent learning experience !
