Found this in my rolls from yesterday, unfortunately the rim is damaged on the one side, I wish I could get more uncirculated Lincoln cents like this, but as a Canadian it's hard to come by pennies let alone American pennies since we don't use them over here any more, mayb one day I'll come down to the states and just grab a bunch of rolls from a bank to bring back home. It's hard to capture "shiny" lol and I'm sure to the American members it's just a "normal penny" but it's nice to get one where I can see all the design so nicely, helps me compare the more circulated coins I get. It's hard to study design when you don't know what a coin looks like in a nice mint state.

It is a shame that it is damaged at 9:00.

I'll keep it as a reference coin to compare with the same year, I love how much detail there is if not for the damage on the edge I would definitely keep it as a little gem

I used to be the other side of the coin here. I grew up close to the border. It was common to have Canadian change in our pockets mixed with US change. We thought nothing of it.

However, we never could get a penny with luster on it. Even the ones form the latest year never had luster. We would visit Canadian banks for rolls, like you said, and get lustrous examples of the new issues that way.

I do not know for sure, but my experience always made me think Canadian cents tarnished much more quickly?

I have many older Canadian coins I pulled from the rolls iv picked up 1970s to date that all have there complete luster. It's much harder to come by American cents since you cannot get pennies in Canada anywhere for the most part unless you have some connections.
