A recent aquisition 1922 "weak D" LWC. Highly worn coin or late stage die set, or both? Grade?

A decent amount of wear, but also a late die state. Some XF/AU coins can look VG because of the die state. This one exhibits evidence of wear. Nice coin!

On the face of it you'd guess G-06, wouldn't you?

But thinking much better for reasons the TPGs will never explain.

This coin appears to have been buried. Surface pitting is obvious. It was probably found in the dirt, cleaned and it gradually retoned long ago. The odd red color is also an indicator. IMO, this is not a weak D, just a highly worn and previously corroded coin.

Yeah, the 22-D Lincoln is a strange one alright, especially the weakly struck ones. It is one of my favorite of the Lincoln's to collect, as I have like 12 different ones.

I agree with EvilThad. I have (or had) a similar '22 D which exhibited a fine pitted look, worn soft over years of circulation.

The 1922 LWC is one of my favorite coins as well, whether it's a 22-D, a weak D or a no D. To have a Denver coin appear to have been manufactured in Philadelphia has always fascinated me!

The camera I use is a Coolpix AW110 (bright orange) and it casts an orange color reflection in my closeups. In hand this coin appears as the typical brown. I usually adjust the color but in this case I forgot.

By the way, this is my very first purchase of a Lincoln Wheat cent and I only have two remaining vacancies, the 1909S and the 1909S VDB. All the others I collected from circulation dating back to when I was a kid in 1966.

That's quite an accomplishment! Can you show us some of your better finds?

The D seems a tad strong for a weak D, but very close. That's a seriously great accomplishment over the past 50 years. Unlikely you'll find the two remaining in circulation at this point, but it's amazing that you found the 14-D and all the semi-keys from circulation.

I was working at a restaurant in 1974 and the boss let me go through all the coins. He'd even call me at home if he found something cool. I think there must have been a customer who was raiding a coin collection. We would regularly get old stuff; rolls of Buffalo nickels and Mercury dimes, a few Standing Liberty quarters, even a couple of Morgan dollars. I'd also cash my paycheck at the bank in coins, pulling all the old stuff. Oldest was an 1865 IHC, also a couple Seated Liberty dimes. Filled out my Jefferson and Roosevelt series this way too. Then I went to college and forgot about it all until I cashed in the silver in 1979. And then never looked at it again until 3 years ago (busy with work and raising kids) when I noticed a 2019W quarter in change.

A good one to fill a what many call a controversial hole!
