Craziest thing. I can not get the reverse loaded and I'm not by the coin to get another pic but is this worth getting graded..

Enlarging this photo shows no justice to this coin . Need sharper pics obverse and reverse for proper grade .

It looks like it's in Mint State BU condition, but sharper and infocus pictures are needed to determine what exact grade it is.

Single scratch in left upper field would preclude a grade better than 64, even if the reverse was essentially perfect.

That is not a TPG warranted grade.

I'm seeing too many scratches to make that a worthwhile submission unless you're putting together a set and just need to fill the gap. Best guess is MS63. You're scratched to death - nothing major, just back/handling marks. Plus the reverse carbon marks and the late die state of the obverse strike.
- 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.

Biedercoins, thanks for the help. And I am not gonna lie, I didn't realize that it looked like till after yall needed the additional pics. So I posted anyway. Once again thanks. I have a 1990 Lincoln and a 1990 dime I would like for you to look at. Actually it was an uncirculated set someone gave me about 15 years ago and missing one or two. Any I'll post later.

Neither obverse pic suggests a coin worth spending grading fees on. Do show us anything else you have!

I agree . I can see why you were hyped up about this coin ,nice red, strong strike but the hits and reverse stains bring any grade way down .

It is a very nice looking coin, but definitely not worth grading.
