This coin looks like it had an old cleaning back in the day, but I only paid $25 for it so I bought it anyway. Has the markers for stage-C.

Very nice RPM! Has anyone ever noticed how the smile on Linc's face has changed over the years? He looks so happy on this 1911 with an apparent smile. Compare this Cent to later ones. Very odd....

@bu

I would tend to agree only after looking at a 1986 1C. The smile on the '86 is dead-on perpendicular to the ground.

I would suggest, however, starting a new thread on this smiling matter so as to keep the theme of this thread dedicated to the RPM. Additionally, you would gain a greater draw from our members interested in this facial feature only.

Pretty good deal for that RPM.

Nice pick! A nice variety even if the coins got an old cleaning.
