I was just curious if anyone knew if this would be a sign for other things I could be missing, apparently die scratches and doubled dies go hand in hand but I don't really see any doubling anywhere, as you can see there is a big amount of die scratches covering Lincolns eye, ear, hair and in front of his face and top of his head.

It is all over the obverse and reverse in some of the columns as well, I've never see this many die scratches before so I thought I would show you guys and see what you's may think.





They say coin roll hunting is like a box of chocolates, you never know what your gonna get.... I think it went something like that, I was too busy looking at coins.

This is my very first error coin I found that got me hooked.

It may have been from the polishing of the die to remove a die clash.

I agree that those are due to die polishing. I am not aware of a direct connection between DDs and die scratches, though.

I could totally be mistaken regarding the die scratches and doubling having any sort of a connection, I have just noticed a lot of coins that have doubling usually have die scratches as well being used as markers of some sorts so thats why I had said that. But I will post pics of the full obverse and reverse here shortly

I think the idea comes from the way varieties are often confirmed by looking for "indicators" such as die scratches.
- About two score and seven+ years ago, I began a Lincoln cent collection. I have all, most in AU or better & am upgrading to MS as possible.
- I collect all coins minted 1809, 1859, 1909, 1959, and 2009. Lincoln and C.Darwin were both born in 1809. The latter published his "On the Origin of Species.." in 1859, the Lincoln cent debuted in 1909, and after that it just seemed like a good way to show the evolution of US coinage. Most non-nums to whom I've shown these react with the phrase, "I had no idea!" That alone shows their worth.
- I've completed MS sets of Jeffersons & MS specimens of other ¢5 nickels; Franklins done. Roosies mostly done. I enjoy hunting for WLH and "winged liberty" dimes.

With them being in the center of the coin, the metal flow would follow these enhancing them even more and showing up as die flow. (Pattern of least resistance) Enlarging them as they continue to strike more coins.
