Hello!

Obligatory "first post/need ID" for a 1989 D Lincoln Cent. Thanks in advance!

What is the error called?
Is it common/is the coin valuable?

@311, first welcome to CCF. Second, that number 9 does look very odd, but I suspect that that a small hole in the copper plating at the bottom of the 9 has allowed the underlying zinc core to begin the degradation process. This can lift up the surrounding copper plating into a bubble. Please try to depress this with the tip of a wooden toothpick.

If there is any gray on that area. it might be a split plating issue?

So your saying my first post is just a coin with gas? Haha. Off to a great start :) Thank you all for the warm welcome and prompt replies.

I have a handful of other possible double-die and/or mint mark errors. As a community do you guys generally prefer separate threads for each coin or throw them all in one?

Thanks in advance!

Yes thx for asking. As @agwolf noted, best practice is one coin per thread.
