Hi All

The '9' in the date looks odd, maybe smashed by a car, machine, or something else? I'm thinking it's PMD. Parts of 'Liberty' look like it took a hit of PMD. I'd appreciate your thoughts whether it looks like PMD or a thicker 9...

Many thanks for any input

Yes circulation flattening, although that D mintmark might have been filled when this coin was minted if the die had a broken post.

A brew of circulation flattening and hits/dings.

That's interesting about the L. I thought it was just a popular spot for grease.

Well because of the wide rims, the 'L' draws into the rim area. What I mentioned about the die wear on the wrong side of the devices on the wide rim cents. Here is what I'm talking about.

Note the die wear on the '9' is on the wrong side of the devices. It should be on the side facing the rim. But I determined that is just seen on the cents with the wide rims:

More noticed on the later die states.
