This is an un-circulated coin with no steps nor ribbed pillars. I don't believe it's a greased scenario. Error or not?

I'm thinking overpolished rev die. Although, why they're polishing a circ die, ?
- 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.

Looks like an 82-84. The reverse isn't strong on most of those coins. Not damaged or over polished in my opinion. Normal coin

Right now I'm thinking it's a soft strike.
Post an image of the obverse.

Anther Possibility: Thin planchet
Describe it as if there were no picture.

Actually they all pretty much look that way. I heard it was because the design was so deep, the devices could not fully form on the design. Note the cornice is also weak. But not as weak as the steps. I just looked on PCGS and all three they have there looks exactly like this coin.

Thank yo all for your comments. So it being un-circulated and a normal strike for this year, what would be the grade of such a coin?

Probably low 60's area. Not a keeper. You can buy OBW rolls of these.
