Ok, moving on from the "P"'s to the "D"'s.

This looks nice, so I'm suspect it's been plated.

Seems to show doubling characteristics?

Also, what is under the raised L in Pluribus? It doesn't seem to be PMD because under the loop, the L is undamaged and raised.

Is this more of I'm seeing things again










Thanks again for your time and patience with me!

Die Deterioration Doubling and...huh that last image in the OP is interesting. Lamination perhaps? If not a lamination, then I'm guessing a struck through debris.

And the image you just posted looks like to be a die crack along with a die chip.

Yup, Die Deterioration Doubling. That die was on its way out, several die cracks, die chips, I like it personally!

Does not look replated to me.

Interesting. I've got a few hundred 1943's to look through. Most are rusted though, so I'm not as excited as I could be.

That coin looks the exact opposite of reprocessed.

This shot here is the give away....



Reprocessed cents look shiny or "liquidy" as I like to call it, especially the edges, not dull and gray like this.

This is what a reprocessed cent looks like...

Two types of Reprocessed Steel Cent. Yours is the first one NOT the zinc coated one. HOW do I know this? I have a roll of the 1943 S coins and they look like twins to your coin. Have a look see https://coinweek.com/counterfeits/c...steel-cents/

IMO, there is zero chance the OPs coin is reprocessed. I only see one type of reprocessing on the coinweek page. I've had literally thousands of steel cents cross my desk (bought them in bulk to give away to kids at shows) and have never seen a dull finish on a reprocessed cent.

The die wear is often accented on a processed coin. I'm thinking the coin wasn't plated, but re-coated with zinc. But the closeups are showing me of a coating sheen that it should not have if it is original.

The raised area could be something covered over from the prep work to enhance the coin. The edge of the coin looks like it is showing an altered edge from prep work.
