Hi guys,

I am new to the coin community. I found this coin in my grandfather's collection and I have a few questions. Is this considered a die crack or a lamination error on the obverse of this 1916 Lincoln Wheat penny?

Also would like to know why the obverse rim is wider than other coins I have seen? Is this an error from the mint or just due to flattening from normal circulation?

Thanks very much.

Looks like an old scratch that got smoothed out over time. PSD.

The Lamination issue is a band. One edge is under Liberty. The other edge is through the date.

Subtle lamination on a classic, early LWC. I'm thinking flattening of the rim due to circulation--can't rule out the cent being a proof. Unsure. Others may have the answer.
