Hi all
I was looking at this coin for the DDO die markers when I noticed something that looks like a little piece of an extra column in bay 4.

I'm not sure if it is a DDO because I couldn't locate any markers for sure (it's kind of dirty). Could you check out these pics and see what you think?

Thanks.

We had a similar question a few days ago:

These extra columns were part of the design to create a 3D effect. It is not a doubled die. All Lincoln Memorial cents should have these extra columns.

I saw that post earlier. That's not what I am referring to. There is a small extra piece of something (that looks like it could be column) at the bottom of bay 4 slanted NW to SE.


Did you see any doubling on the obverse?

Thanks for checking for me. I really appreciate your time.

MDD if any on obverse on the B in LIB N of IN but noting else. That's a "innie" damage. Think coin surface on the DIE, that would have to be material INSIDE the device to make those marks.

Yes, normal. Get that microscope away from..........
My biggest fear is that when I die my wife will sell all my coins for what I told her I paid for them.

Working on Whitman Large Cent date set album 1793-1857 (57 holes filled of 64 total) now come the "toughies" - yikes!

The bays in the memorial are incused on the face of the coin, so they would be raised areas on the die. Correct so far?

So to make a raised area in the bay there would have to be an incused area on that particular part of the die. Correct so far?

So something, at some point, made an impression into the reverse die where the area is for bay 4. Right?

Looks like a die gouge to me. Just my opinion. Looks like it’s too far away for it to be Lincoln’s legs.

Thanks Coppergold. I don't think they are legs either. They are raisedareas though.
