I hope this is not going to have too many pics but in order to show the coin I had to take 12 pics close up and 2 whole coin pics. I assume this would be categorized as a bad strike? If not let me know what I should call it. TY

It's 2x2 worthy. It's also a heavily greased die struck cent with radial smearing.

Its'a bifacial grease strike. The strong design rim and the (largely) strong Memorial is all the evidence you need.

A coin is worth what someone will pay for it. If you put it on eBay, please don't misrepresent it.

Would I call it a bifacial grease strike? I may put it on Ebay. TY for your advice.

A low pressure strike would not form the rims as strong:


Grease strike creates the rims:
