This coin has blazing, LDS luster. You can see it in the halo around the portrait and in the indirect transfer image on the reverse. The are some hits and distractions in the obverse, right field. In hand these really interrupt the cartwheel spokes. This coin is a classic for the reverse, you can clearly see the outline of the obverse portrait and how the strike weakness it caused by incomplete die filling.

I'm including 2 obverse pictures with a slight variation in lighting. This coin is so bright it tends to saturate my camera CCD.




Lincoln Cent Lover!

Appealing color. Hits on Abe's jacket but obverse fields relatively unmarred, similar for reverse, MS-64.

Agree, MS-64RD. Hits on ONE (reverse) really hurt this.
