There are a few oddities going on with this cent.

The first thing I noticed was that the collar was quite large, which I've seen before, but not so drastic. I was planning to save it because of just that oddity, even though it wasn't that special.

But then I turned the coin to the reverse. It just popped out to me how thick the devices were. I've seen 1989 D cents and none of them were this drastic.

After looking on Wexler's, I found that it could be possible that the cent simply had the WWHR-001, but I wanted to confirm that here.

What do you guys think? Again, my assumption is that it is just the WWHR, but I just want to be sure.

I see some DDD and Split plate Doubling, maybe this is what makes the lettering appear thicker.

I noticed that as well, but I took that out of the equation. Perhaps it could also be slight Machine Doubling flowing downwards to the center of the coin as well. As you might notice, there are splits visible in the devices, especially in Ts of STATES.

It was just slightly unusual to my eyes as I try to keep my microscope at a perfect level, and when I removed a Memorial cent and slid this coin underneath it, the devices looked significantly larger.

Could also be slight die polishing causing the devices to "pop out" more.

I just thought this might be an interesting piece to discuss

Yes split plate doubling is what jumped out at me.

I'd keep it as an educational piece to show to other new collectors you run into. Probably the Obverse is like that also. If so you have a great example of DDD. (If you don't save it, then this conversation will come back and haunt you. And you won't have to get in front of the machine:

Certainly Coop, I will indeed. It will give me a chance to educate new beginners as you suggested.

Ha! I'd very much prefer not to have dealings with such a machine!
