Hey all, I was going through my coins and noticed that this 1973 Lincoln Cent's ear looked a little strange (oddly undetailed). However, I quickly noticed that behind the ear there seems to be a print error of some sort, potentially. It appears to be another ear or at least a mark that looks like one. Is this an error, or something else. (Also I'm very new to this site so sorry if the image isn't so great. I have other ones so I can always send better ones through email or something like that!) thanks for all your help!

Hm...we're going to need better photos. It seems like you're taking photos through a magnifier. Can we have a normal one that just shows the entire obverse of the coin?

It's difficult to see but it might be either a die break, or just some foreign smudge on the coin. I'll need better photos to confirm.

EDIT: With the new photos it's still difficult to tell, I'll let the others chime in.

I can't tell from the pics. More light and less distortion would help.
