I don't normally keep finned rimmed coins but think I will keep this 1918 S LWC with a finned rim due to its age and still is a fairly solid cent. Its the oldest I have seen yet and it almost looks like its layered but that is due to some type of residue I am sure.

If it's not finned then what caused what appears to be a proto rim?

There was something undesirable on the coin at one time. (possible glue or Bondoe?) You can see where they tried to remove it in a couple of spots. The wide rim was normal at that time.

Alright, definitely learned something today! Thanks Mr. Coop. Now what caused the rim to apparently be doubled?

They may have sanded it a bit. Even rubbing a toned coin can remove some of the color and turn it back to a copper color.

I believe he's also asking about the stepped effect on the rim at K8-K11 on the obverse.

That's exactly what I'm asking about Coinfrog. What was the cause?

I would say it was due to the way the planchet was lying in the die...maybe off kilter at K8-11.

Back to my earlier comment. Something was on the coin and they tried to remove it with possibly a Dremel tool. The coin was damage and is still damaged. But it is still a 101 year old Wheat cent.
