if you're thinking this is the 1888/7 overdate, this is definitely not it. Date logo position relative to the bust point and the underlying denticles is wrong.

Yeah but did you zoom in from the bottom up to the middle right you could see it looks like A7 now my eyes can just be seeing things and I know it's not the one that they have listed but just to me it looks like one

This is the correct position of the date relative to the bust tip and dentils for the overdate. It is the only known obverse. Yours does not match this, sorry.

Looks like a Snow-2. Blow up the bust at thebottom, there should be the serif of a 1 there at the pearl.

Just a damaged Indian Head cent. The damage makes this a cull coin.

I disagree with damaged. There is something for sure under that last 8 and it looks like a 1. Is it possible that a 1881 got restamped as an 1888? I'd send it in to a TPGS.

Thanks Carl it really does look like something under that last 8. Well hopefully we will find out.
