I've come across missing digits on coins before, mostly from grease errors or just weakly punched planchets. However, I don't think I have seen a coin missing most of the digits in the date. It also looks very clean too, barely any trace of the numbers. I know its a 1960, since the zero has a distinct shape vs the one in 1970. Anyone ever seen something like this?

Surface appears etched, as if by acid, perhaps to deliberately create this oddity.

Or sand blasted/or Grease Filled Die issue. The rim seems fairly full. But the Motto is also weakened. (IN)

My eye is drawn to Lincoln's eye. Having studied quite a few thousand LWC's in all years and all grades, I remain impressed that the upper eyelid is seldom worn or damaged even though it presents in high grade as if it were a very vulnerable detail.

I don't see any eyelid on the image. I, like those before me, suspect it was lost to some species of hanky-panky.

I agree with intentional damage. Looks cool at first, then reality of tomfoolery sets in. I wanted to believe, but alas, it's just intentional post mint damage. Does not look a Greaser to me.

There was a very similar no date Wheat cent posted recently. It was deemed a Greaser. I don't see any damage around the date and believe with better pics this could be a Grease Filled Die.
