I know that if there is shine on the '43, it is most likely plated...
I have added in a 1943 P that I know is plated for comparison on 2 images...

What do you think on the 1943 D?
It seems too nice... ? LOL

I have full shots of obv/rev and a few close-ups...will upload if needed. (all I can upload at the moment with uploader going so slow

It looks like original surfaces to me. Most rezinced Lincolns seem to have a blue hue. They also tend to be too smooth or even have a polished look over the entire coin. I don't see this on your coin.

Let's see what the REAL experts have to say. I could be wrong on this one.

It doesn't have the characteristics of a reprocessed or plated 43 . AS John said let's see a pic of the edge of the coin .

Close call.
A carefully stored 1943 LWC can look that good with original surfaces.
The one in my type set is slabbed NGC MS-66 and looks about the same.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

Ok I got some shots of the rim... but in looking further at that on the back side I see some shine surface on a more dull surface reverse. Does this mean it was partially plated on one side or that the lamination is wearing away? And maybe some wear on the rim edge side shot?

Now I am even more unsure on this coin?






Yay, uploader is fixed!

If original,why is the edge so shiny? These coins were punched from a sheet that was plated on both sides. The edges should be bare steel looking somewhat dull or rusted.

I question this one. Why is there light colored areas on that coin?

Hi EV...

Now after seeing that shine/no shine on the reverse... I have even more questions?
Is that perhaps plating that fell off? Maybe saved those spots retained, because they seem a bit more depressed on the surface... ? If that makes sense?

Maybe a formerly plated coin with wear?

if plating is in fact the case... it would be amazing if all plating would fall away to reveal the original finish...

Hoping it is not plating... but I am in question.
