Hello everyone,

This coin looks uncirculated to me. But I wonder if the scratches make it a high AU coin.

Thank you.

Scratches in themselves aren't able to make a coin AU. Wear of the surfaces is what drops a coin into the circulated grades. The more scratches on an uncirculated coin, the lower the uncirculated grade. For example, a coin with a lot of chatter, or scratches, can grade around MS-60 to MS-62. Something with cleaner fields and less chatter can grade around MS-63 and up.

Your Lincoln cent has a lot of scratches and chatter, so I would say it falls in the MS-63 to MS-64 range.

Looks like a die crack on the right wheat to the rim may be wrong not a good close up of it

MS-61 for me. Lots of scratches on the coin, but I love it. It looks gorgeous.

Yes, there's a die crack on the reverse. Overall, MS62 for me.

Agree, looks like 61/62 and possibly AU-58.
