Another new view, since I never had a macro lens or digital camera when I got this in the 90s. After all the recent mistakes and working on the lighting, it would have been many rolls of film and lots of money before I got the images right.

Isn't digital great?

Looking at the photo, I thought I saw a 7 but then, the bar is too long and too big? Something under the missing number, doesn't look right either.

I just assumed grease on the die, but I had to ask?

I would guess 1957. Nice Grease Filled Die example.

I'm thinking '57 as well. Wonder what the reverse looks like...

Oh sorry, I didn't think the reverse was interesting.



The top bar on the 7 appears too wide and there's something down below? (or am I seeing things)

Looks like a Greaser, and probably a 7, but assuming it's a wheat I guess it could be a 5 or...?

Reverse is showing a die crack--left wheat. Rather nice. The '57 Wheat cent (Philadelphia mint) often displays a myriad of interesting stuff.

Die Crack, Oh... right. I never would have noticed. Coming here and investing some time, will improve my understanding. I never really did much. I mean, when I was a kid, I collected from pocket change. Nearly filled a cent book, and with buying the 1931-S I'm left where most of us hobby collectors are, no 1909-S VDB and no 22 plain.

Looking for unusual coins is a good diversion. I probably never thought about a die crack on anything. Easy enough, raised cracked line.

Then the Nickels, same thing except filling a book from circulation, I'm on my third, was just some Winter entertainment.

Thanks for more ideas and understanding.

I still wonder about the missing number as it's too large, there are raised bits and pieces where the number should be. But if it's not just a one off, no recognized error, that's what it is.

No I don't think I'm going to be retiring from any coin find in any imaginary world. I'm more likely to win the lottery and I know the odds of that!

I concur that it is a Greaser and a very nice one at that. Throw in the die crack on the reverse and that makes it an even neater cent.

Last one on this? I don't know if I shouldn't have looked or if I'm seeing much more detail. I cleaned up a microscope lens, mounted it on an adapter and now I see a "0" plus scratches. But then there's a chunk of something as well.

More confusing than when I started. Striations, but not over the entire area.

New ballgame now in my in my humble opinion...... Almost appears to be an extremely abraided or over polished die from the looks of that pic and maybe not a Greaser. Amazing what different lighting angles can reveal. Not sure.

It could be a Grease Fill on that device and Possible thin gouge on the die.

Thanks all, I'll keep it. Yes, interesting how getting better at photography shows more variations. It will always remain a 195? in my collection.
