I was going through some wheat cents and came upon this one.
Not in the best of condition but found it interesting that it looks as if Lincoln is wearing a cape. How bout it guys.
What's your thoughts on this one. Any appreciated.

That is damage to the coin. Nothing more. Possible coin contact altered this coin. New information added to this coin. Check the corrected comment below.

Is the linear feature raised above the surface, or cut (incuse) into the surface?

The linear feature is raised above the surface. It give the impression of a second layer or cape over the shoulder of Lincoln's coat except it continues on down to the rim of the coin.
Thanks to everyone for the feedback.

I glad you made that last comment, I was only looking at the upper area. But the lower area shows me that this is a die crack, rather than a contact mark When you see this next time place an arrow there. That will save up time to see what you are seeing. Thanks again for that extra thought that I missed.

I understand that using the arrows to point specific areas of interest is very helpful but every time I add the to a photo, the file becomes to large to upload into the post. I'm not very good a navigating photo shop apps, sort learning as I go.
I tried the free app, and all goes well until I get to the very last step. I don't know where my photos are going once I've resized them. Well I see the thumbnails at the bottom of the screen, but I haven't figured out how to up them to the post.

I don't use this feature on the site. But I sent staff a message that you need assistance.
