Hey all,

Yeah this one has it all I think. Interested in if you all think this is a Greaser too, the strike seems weak on Lincolns face, neck, front lapel...

Thoughts?

Thanks,

This looks like a mis-aligned die rather than an off-center strike.

Not off center, not a Greaser, yes a die crack, yes plating bubbles.

Imo, only worth saving if you really want to, since minor die cracks in that location are very common and plating bubbles don't add value.

Sam, I'd take another look if I was you. That's no wear under Abe's chin, that's a Grease Filled Die.

Not a Greaser, but an over-polished die in the area of neck and coat lapel

The roughness is from plating over dust on the planchets. Then when struck, the zinc dust gives this appearance.

I believe the weakness under the chin is being caused by the plating bubbles, merc. If it were a Greaser, we'd be seeing loss of definition at the highest points of the design, which does not seem to be the case here. It's more a loss of definition wherever the plating bubbles happen to be.
