I found this 1988 LMC that looks like it may be from a grease filled die but I am not sure, the weight is 2.49 grams, any information would be appreciated and thank you in advance

Yes very nice greaser--probably worth keeping in a 2x2.

Excellent greaser ctrcrazy2

I find that diagonal line on the reverse interesting. Almost seems like above the line has been struck through while below it hasn't.

Is that line a scratch?
