This coin has a hard punch mark which has made the States & *OF* which have been squashed and half obscure. A Close AM mark
Does this make this coin desirable or simply a mis-stamp that occurs frequently.
Many thanks for looking

That is a known weak area and Close AM is normal.

with John. This is a known weak spot on all the Lincoln cents. If the planchet is a little light, or a little low pressure. The shoulder takes so much metal to fill up, it takes it away from the reverse in that spot. You will see it in both wheat and memorial cents.

The difference between a Struck Through Grease and a weaker set of letters on that area is these images:

Your coin is showing the stronger tops of the devices were the strike either didn't have enough metal, or too much was moved to the obverse and that area suffered the lost of metal. Not a grease issue on this one.

CoopHome: Grease fill or Metal movement issues, how to tell the differences? tops of the devices showing strength

Thank you so much for the detailed pic of what it looks like. Truly appreciated as I have about 20 / 30 coins which show what I have posted and I have now learnt a great deal in what to be looking for.
Many many thanks
