I found this slightly MAD 1989 P LMC with the most over polished set of dies I have seen to date. It is in remarkably great shape and it must have been the last cent Philadelphia sent out of the mint that year. I think I will put this one in a tube because it is in such great shape. Tell me what you think!

You are confusing die scratches and die polishing. You have a coin with heavy die scratches. But over polishing remove some of the devices.




Two different issue for the dies.

The difference is between sanding a car, or removing all the paint from the car.

Most of these that are heavily abraded are circulation worn and for the most part smoothed out. Brown in color. This one is in fantastic shape, almost no wear. That's why I'm keeping it. I know it's only worth face but you don't normally ruin into specimens like this one CRH.

Wowzers! The Fuller Brush salesman must have left his whole sample kit at the Philadelphia Mint right before they scraped the grease out of that die pair.

I don't think the dies were in that bad a shape at all, but it probably suffered a severe clash and rather than going to the trouble of an extensive polishing job the abraded then away with a coarse abrasive and then didn't follow through with finer grades. They sometimes do this with an emery stick. They refer to it as stoning the die. Not sure why they do this, it leaves it looking worse than the clashmarks do.

After looking at this cent a few times that makes a lot of sense. The devises do not look to be in bad shape at all.

was gonna say the same. The die polish lines wear off with use, and so this represents a coin struck very soon after the polishing episode. Likely that the die had quite a bit of life left to it.
