While this certainly isn't the most noteable lamination, I'd thought I'd post it anyway.

I do like how the lamination peel is starting to fold over on itself too.

It may be a small lam,but a lam none the less. It also has nice eye appeal.

It could be struck through debris? Or a lamination? But the shape doesn't look like a lamination to me. The laminations are often more in a straight line. Debris, squashes into the shape it is struck into. They can be thick or thin. But often not straight like lamination issues are.

That is a pretty cool find @silv. Whether it is foil or a lam, it seems to be unstable all the way back to under the E in LIBERTY.

Thanks all!

Yes indeed, a lam is a lam, and speaking as a lam collector, I'm certainly happy to have it!

For sure John, it's one of the few nice looking wheat cents I have raw. Has a bit of redish/brown toning that the camera doesn't capture.

Interesting Coop, thanks for letting me know. I'll make sure to keep that information in the future when I'm looking at other such coins. Perhaps I need to relabel this one.

Spence, you've got a good eye!

Again, thank you all!
