I have a very wor and heavily pitted Wheat cent I just found. What I see is 1911s. No point in posting pics cause all you will see is a heavily pitted peice of copper. Can't capture anything at all on pics. It does seem like more hope than that Barber dime of mine.

I know it is s mint mark and with plenty of frowning I see 191xs. I see the last digit as a 1 but am not 100 percent sure.

You asked for it:



You can see what I an talking about if it was in hand. On a pic it masks in with the pitting. Yes it is a wheat. I wish there was a grade like Xtra poor- 1/4 details . That would be the grade it is.

It looks like long lost pirate treasure. Long lost from the numismatic world that is.

@ofm, plenty of good discussion about this on prior CCF threads. You can use the search box with NIC-A-DATE and COPPER as keywords. As I recall, our own @biokemist6 wrote up a really nice discussion, but I'm not seeing that right away. Here are links to a couple others to get you started:

I actually looked at it using a 12x loup and see semi clearly 1911s. The only other thing it could look like is a 1919s which I proved to myself that it is not a 19s cause there is not a vdb on the shoulder. The area where the vdb is is one of the most intact areas on the coin. So I am 95% sure that it is the 1911s. I will use it as a hole filler until something better comes along in my warmans that I put only coins I found in circulation into. I may have to cheat on the better dates though.

Doesn't nic-a-date attack copper? I wouldn't think it would help in this case, but maybe the "grain" around the date from striking would come into play.

Here I am where I must be,
Go where I would, I can not.

@OFM, I'll see if I have an extra 11-S when I get home in a few hours. Assuming it isn't you know, particularly high grade, I'll just gift it to you. If you're resorting to using that as a hole filler I'd rather just give you something decent to fill it. I think I should have a problem free AG or G somewhere.

If I had money that I didn't care for, I'd send it in to PCGS just to see what it comes back as. Might be a details grade. Somebody somewhere out there has the lowest graded PCGS coin in existence.

Badly acid damaged, not worth any effort IMO.

It will come back corroded, details or damaged so it wouldn't be a "lowball" candidate.
