Ok, so something happened to this coin during the minting process. It is a zinc planchet, weight is 2.5 grams and I believe it is a single squeeze coin. But the forth digit on the date is gone and try as I did I could not make it out. The I in liberty is almost gone but the rest of the obverse with the exception of the plating surface appears normal. There is doubling of the top of the hair and at the bottom of Lincoln bust. The reverse however is another kettle of fish all together! Possibly a Die issue as strange doubling exists on USOA, One Cent, and the motto. There is a heavy border around the roofand doubling of the left and right sides of the memorial!

I hope everybody chimes in on this coin because I don't believe this is PMD. I must apologize for the number of Picts (15) but I believe the coin warrants proper coverage. As usual let me know your thoughts and Regards.

(I must apologize for the number of Picts (15) Sorry John but as you know a pic is worth a thousand words. Struck Through Grease, never had one before. So now I have and won't make that mistake again.

My most probable guess for date is 1999.
Struck Through Grease a relatively common error.

Yes a very nice example of being Struck Through Grease. The doubling on ONE CENT appears to be either DDD or a plating issue.

The multiple lighting is what makes it lack light and shadows. For micro images a single light is better for images of variety coins. The full images can use the lighting for this light. But light and shadows show spread a lot better:
Ring light:

It floods the fields with reflection.

Single light source.



The light and shadows show the spread easier.

I turned all the lights off in the room I am in. I shot all the pics with the overhead LED LIGHTS only and shot with the lowest level for the best picture.

The overhead LED lights are the issue. Just one single light is all you need for micro images. I replaced mine the day I got the scope. I knew they didn't help.

Very nice and special Struck-Through-Grease coin. Would this be sought after by collectors? $$$?

Not really. If you sold it for $1 you would be doing good.

Nice Greaser, not all that unusual, nor rare. Greasers missing 2/3s or more are the rare ones. This one worth maybe a dollar or two at most.

Well the progress made to create them could change the way you take your images going forward. If it makes progess, keep the ideas. If not, keep trying to improve. Improvement is always the goal.
