Couple of Questions...

#1 Unread post by I like Dimes » Wed Jun 20, 2018 7:43 pm

Hi. Been a lurker for awhile but now i could the assistance of this awesome community.

First. Can someone tell me what is going on with the words "we trust" on this 1998D Penny? Seems really odd to me.

Next, is this a 1970S small date variety?

And lastly, on this 1955S wheat penny is that a normal mint mark?

Thank you.

Welcome and thanks for posting both sides of the coins.
It is usually best to post one coin per thread. It avoids confusion and is more likely to get you replies if some one has input.

1)The first image enlarges pretty well but it is hard to tell if it is plating blisters which affects copper plated zinc cents.
(Also seems to be on the reverse between the left side of the N of ONE and the rim.
2)Might be a small date but you would need to get a closeup of the date.
3)The MM question is difficult without a closeup also. Could be an RPM or just damage from a hit (PSD- Post Strike Damage).

Yeah it is more beneficial to post one coin per topic.

I see plating issue on the first coin, large date for the second and contact marks on the third.
