I found this in my car today. Is this just how Abe looks with an excellent strike enhanced by toning, or is there extra 'stuff' going on in his face and hair? I'm showing a couple angles but there is so much chiseling in his profile, 10 different angles would look like 10 different guys.

to the community! I think it the toning, I don't see anything else. The discoloration of toning mixed with the circulation wear gives it that look IMO

@Kawliga, some of the fine details on Abe have changed over the years. I recommend comparing this coin against another 2006 cent to see if you still think that this one has anything unusual.

Just a toned Lincoln Memorial cent. This happens, if it's out in the sun for too long, or if it just naturally toned in circulation.

Yup, just a toned Lincoln that is probably showing some more of the details due to contrast

So, if yall don't see any doubling, strike-throughs or cuds, that answers my question. As for circulation wear, I mean there are a couple of visible field scratches but I'd say the depth of device detail still extant 12 years after minting would be a testament to the quality of the strike. I don't have another 2006 P presently, but I have plenty of much-younger Lincolns with far less detail. And as for the "discoloration" I don't know if it's just me but I love the rainbow effect. --This penny is actually more colorful than you can see here. My camera actually captured it perfectly, but it was lost in translation between bluetoothing it to my laptop and using the platform optimizer to shrink it because it was too big for the 300k file uploading limit.

Anyway I love this penny so I'll keep it. Incidentally, is there a way to rapidly, intentionally rainbow-discolor a coin? Even if there's no quick trick like "soak in milk for 24 hours" or "leave under a high-K fluorescent bulb for a week," I would be curious to know more about what factors go into what color changes of coins. I mean I can already guess what the factors would be (metal composition, along with a long list of physical/chemical potential exposures), but are there particular factors known to cause particular colors? I've heard of the pvc effect on pennies but that's still a head-scratcher to me because I'm familiar with only a few pvc applications (like would a penny start undergoing the reaction after brief time in a pvc coin purse? Is it stoppable after the interaction? Is it reversable?). And do coins of the same type show differing color effects over time even when kept by the same collector under the same conditions?

I'd love to know if any highly-regarded collectors have written on their observations of color reactions. Or even better, if anyone has done any experiments (I'm a biologist so strict adherence to the scientific method is my gold standard, pardon the pun, though I know better than to expect controlled experiments for absolute bias-avoidance in every life pursuit).

It could just be that the die is an EDS (Early Die State)?

While it is a nicer die state, it is not an EDS example. Perhaps a EMDS (Early-Mid-Die-State) coin. Toning maybe from a cleaning. Even saliva can turn the color of a coin:

Note the darker color on the right side of the coin?
