Found this in my pocket change recently. Looks like double ear maybe? Then maybe a third ear on top of his head, lol! The other marks are raised. Is that from die crack? I've collected coins since I was a kid and have a large collection of some cool coins. I'm new to the details of what to call a coin and weather or not it is worth sending in to be graded. I've never had a coin graded before. This coin community is great! I love reading up and learning of new finds. Thanks for all of y'all's valuable knowledge and helpful input!

These look like some of the most pronounced linear plating bubbles I've ever seen. I'm seeing the start of some zinc rot where a bubble burst on the rim.

I'd agree, can't think of any other reason. Nice find!

Would like to see much sharper, close-in photos of the linear feature--perhaps two or three pics. Thanks.

I agree most likely linear plating bubbles. @gio, first welcome. Second, can you depress the bubbles with the tip of a wooden toothpick?

Yes, they were all bubbles! Thank y'all for all the replies! I pressed on the bubbles and they pressed back to normal. Not as cool of a coin as I first thought but glad I now know. I appreciate the knowledge! I have a few other mystery coins I'll post up soon.

To answer your other question, a coin is worth the cost of grading (about $50) only IF the final value is worth more than the grading fees. Many, MANY times it's not cost effective. Want examples? Look in eBay's SOLD listings, if you see slabbed coins under $50 (you will), somebody was on the wrong side of the equation. If you're still unsure about a coin, ask us here, we'll be honest with you (you're part of our family now}.
