So I had a bunch of 83s I hadn't gone through and trying to take what you've said here I looked them over and then went to wexlers and compared and though I didn't get as many as probably usually would eventually all my what ifs went to the "normal" pile. So then I decided to go down wexlers list of 83 issues and one happened to be a die crack from memorial to rim under initials and I'm not sure if this is one or if it's just damage

Also I had set aside a 1983 d that the 9 got my attention of and then I saw a line I actually thought looked like his shirt doubled but when I started taking pictures it's not what it was at all but not sure if it's quite what I thinknit is now.



So I feel like it looks like the line continues from one side of rim to other next to N of IN. Not fully I mean I can "see" where it would go through Lincoln's neck and head but line actually stops at bust (maybe not sure if it's in neck?)and doesn't start again right away. Also this is not listed in wexlers so I know I need to learn more in discerning damage. Also I did my best with photos. Did everything but stand on my head and this is the best of what came out actually showing anything also included is pic showing why the 9 got my attention




Don't know if this is better?

On the memorial, that is a die crack. The four corners of the memorial are a common area for cracks.
On the 1983D, that might be a linear plating bubble, hard to tell from photos supplied.

I agree—sharp corners are universally areas of high stress:

John1 I do not know what I'm still doing wrong tbh. I've done everything I've been told here. And even before I post I know they're not good but post the best of the bad. I'm elevating the camera on a still surface I'm using a timer and I've used both the paper and tissue paper Dearborn said to use. It's a good thing I never tried to be a photographer lol. There's obviously something I'm missing

Do you have a macro lens on your camera?
They are great for taking closeups without making the picture blurry.
I also try to use natural light whenever I can, something like a window sill.
As long as it is not in the direct sunlight, this allows light from different angles.

Yes jimmy my phone camera has a macro option. But it seems very basic like I can't figure out how to adjust it there. I have not tried natural light only. Unfortunately on that aspect I tend to do this very late night when I can't sleep. I can't think of the last post I did during the day lol. I will try harder to do that next time

@hcix, maybe just take the pics during the day and then upload them as part of your new CCF threads at night when you have insomnia.

HCIX,
For most of us it is not easy taking pics of coins, including me. As to natural light, you can always buy a natural light bulb which replicates sun light. You can also buy a clip-on magnifier for cell phones on the cheap. A so-so photo is still better than none, most times

Could be, can't tell. 1983 pennies are notorious for having die cracks.
