*** Edited by Staff to Add Year / Mintmark / Denomination to Title. Titles are Important! ***

I found this in my old giant bottle with coins. I took several images with the light from different directions. I again see something but it may be the light as it is so shiny. The FG on the back is not clear no matter how I take it.

Coin is pretty reflective. If nothing else you have a nice RED 69-D. Get it in a 2x2.

Note the SE part of the bust? That shows isolated die polishing that reduced the fields. When the fields are reduced, the devices get smaller in size. Thus the area that was shallow design on the bust is now just even with the fields and the design is reduced. The date is showing MD on the 69 area towards the rim. The 1968-1972 cents had a lot of Machine Doubling on them. This change in 1973 with a stronger strike with rims taller. (perhaps to remove the MD issue, but it still continues even to this year) Note the weakness of the statue on the reverse. It is weakened also with the die polishing to remove the previous clash marks. That is why the 'FG' is altered as well. Perhaps this was the first die polishing for this die. But on other examples we have seen in the past the Statue gets weaker, the 'FG' goes away and the roof looks like it is floating, with more and more die polishing. At one time they were grading the missing 'FG' until they realized it was happening to several dies. (as with other past examples of missing devices, it was no longer considering these as a die variety, but an alteration of the die weakening the devices) So there is no premium for these as are common.

Not a Doubled Die. On the obverse, the date shows Machine Doubling, since the device is reduced in size, and it is shelflike in appearance. Those certain years had a huge issue with Machine Doubling for some reason.

Try turning your light source down a little or use a filter on the lights.
