1946s imm-001 FS#501 Inverted MM (MDS Stage B)

This is a variety that flies under the radar for most collectors. BJ Neff discovered this one and it is only the second inverted MM for the Lincoln cent series. (thank you Stoneman for bringing to my attention that the 1910s RPM-003 is inverted also)

I feel very lucky to come across this coin from an original roll. Thank you EDtheLorax.
There were multiple coins in the roll but this is the nicest and thought I would share.

I forgot to add that the machine producing this variety stained most of the coins with grease/oil. It shows up on the images at PCGS pretty well and is on most of mine also.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks CoinTheTerm and Coinfrog. I was glad at least one had minimal grease stains.

Just my Droid phone with macro lens attached for closeups sitting on a thin box to reduce shakiness and improve focus. Have the whole setup sitting on a black mouse pad that I can rotate under the light to highlight different areas.

Thanks Jbuck.
I keep forgetting Lincoln's aren't the only thing people collect so I need to remember to put it in the title!

Thanks CH27.


(I did a little searching and I'm kind of surprised by the value un-slabbed.)
