I have noticed that many LMC's ('60s to '90s) have the "States of" area of the reverse more worn (very worn) than the rest of the reverse. Many times, the rest of the coin shows minimal / average wear.

Any reason for it?

I've noticed for the 1990's era cent, that area is often affected by a grease filled die..Haven't really noticed it in the 60's era ( but now I'll be looking )

Similar to why there is a weak spot on the side of the coin opposite to a cud or major die break, most of the metal tries to fill up the space in Lincoln's bust so the side opposite (STATES OF) is weak.

That would make sense, Tanman2001. That pacifies some of my curiosity about it.

BTW: I put aside about 8 1997-D LMC's with this feature for comparison with other finds. Had a rash of these from 1997.
