I used a plugable USB 2.0 digital Microscope. I hope it's clear enough. The microscope is on Amazon for less that %40. Now, after experiencing with this one I know what I need in a microscope. At least I have an ideal. I had a very difficult time uploading the photos to the forum. Please comment to let me know what this is

More than worn, I'm guessing. Can you enlarge this image and give us the weight?

Worn far too much to be natural, it had some help at some point.

The coin weights 2.43 grams. I didnt think it was worn down. It's thinner than a dime and there is nothing on the reverse. Other than that, the MM is much closer than an ordinary Lincoln Cent. I dont think I can enlarge the entire coin since it has to be under 300kb. If so, please let me know. Well, I didnt do anything to the coin to make it appear worn down. My dad has a grocery store and there were many coins left and this is one of them. Thank you for your responses

The coin weighs 2.43 grams. Since the post only shows up to 300kb, I am not sure I can enlarge it. Any suggestions on that?

Artificial wear, IMHO. The edges shouldn't taper like that from normal circulation wear.

What I can tell you is that it didn't leave the mint that way.

Did you use the CCF optimizer? You should be able to get it a lot bigger than that without going over 300.

This coin has been altered. It is not the result of extended wear in circulation.

Back in the day Lincoln cents were altered to match the diameter and weight of dimes and used to make purchases in vending machines. Compare your Lincoln to a dime to see if it's close to the same size and weight.

Very rounded rims - all details worn - Why not a " dryer coin" ?

@roth, with dryer coins, the rims are almost always rolled over and down into the fields. The rims on the OP's cent look smooth and worn down to a taper.

I don't know- Just throwing out a topic for discussion - My mind is never set.
How did them rims get so far onto the coin? See what I'm saying? I would agree extremely worn but on the reverse the rims are so pushed toward the middle of the coin. Remember, don't shoot the messenger, I always ask questions to learn better!
