Hi all, this penny has two issues. First is in the hair, almost looks like two more layers of hair line on top of coin. Second is the cut marks...error during eject or other? Thanks again for all you help!

Intersting coin. The cuts on the rim are PMD (not a mint error). In addition, it looks to me like there is a die crack which shows up in Lincoln's hair. I'm not sure about the nature of that bump--maybe a blob of metal that has been stuck onto the coin? Hopefully, others will weigh on soon.

These coins are known for the abuse of the dies used to strike them. The edge is just damaged, but the hair looks like a mild die chip (interior die break) or a lamination issue.

Besides the damage on the rim, that's a major (outstanding example) of a very nice RIDB. I don't see one as dramatic as yours listed here. Plus a die chip on the Rev.

Thank you very much, I now know what a RIDB is. Worth of coin w/damage on rim?

It holds no true or significant value. Unless you find someone on eBay that collects these things and really wants it or it's MS69 or MS70. It's just pretty much a cool find at this point.

You could also e-mail the guys on Cuds-on-Coins with a picture and ask them if they think it's a new listing in their opinion. It would also be pretty cool to have it listed on their website.

I agree with the die crack on the hair line. I think that lump of metal on the head is a scraped metal result of a hit that lifted and pushed the metal out of place. Note the color difference in the area below the metal chunk!

Any damage that distracts reduces the collectable value up to 90%. So basically face value or Wheat cent value. (or copper melt)

You know Chase007, you are completely right! I stand corrected. I completely missed that. It's post mint damage. I saw that die crack and was immediately thinking a major RIDB.

USSID, I can see why you would have thought that.
