Yes nothing is listed on varietyvista for this date/denomination. I'm interested to see what you have there @hoss.

Ah yes, classic split plating--fairly common on copper-plated zinc core Lincolns. Knarly example.

We see less of this on post 1990 when the mintmarks are part of the design. I feel on this one, note the fields? See how flat they are? We see full devices. So I feel that on this case, the mintmark punch left a sharp edge when the mintmark was added. So until it flattens, it will keep causing the issue with the split plating. So while this is an earlier die state coin, the split plating issue reduces it to a spendable coin.

I agree, a split plating blister that will continue to enlarge with zinc rot occurring, eating the coin. We see a great deal of these, it's a shame.
