I took quite a few photos so y'all can get a pretty good look at what I'm seeing here, and (hopefully) give me some good news/advice.

I have this 1999 D Lincoln penny that looks to me like it has some kind of doubling errors on the obverse and reverse. Also, I have no clue what happened to "LIBERTY". Is that doubling too? Or is it something else?

Would someone please identify this for me?

Thanks!

This coin has been circulated and is pretty beat up. Looks like split plating around LIBERTY, and lots of staining around the obverse and reverse. You can Safely spend it. :)

Lol ok, thanks.
I think it's pretty hilarious the way people here use the phrase, "you can safely spend it", so often.

Must agree. Pretty-normal looking coin.

There is a 1999 D DDO but yours is not it I'm afraid. Zinc rot is setting in as well.

I'm really glad to see that you are taking that in stride. Occasionally we get pretty strong push back from someone who thinks they have found a million dollar coin. Of course we all have different threshholds for what is worth saving and you should absolutely save this coin if you want to.

The exposed zinc has put this coin on a downward spiral though and the condition will not only not improve with time, but will absolutely deteriorate.

Thank you all for your comments :) I didn't actually know about zinc rot until now.

Thanks I like to think that I have tough skin and a decent sense of humor, lol. As far as this coin goes, though, I think I will just spend it Thank you though.

If common change were worth millions, then we would all be rich and still can't make enough to live on.
