2002 Lincoln penny obverse error

#1 Unread post by AngelaLeino » Wed Dec 06, 2017 3:36 pm

So I'm having a little trouble finding anything on this particular error. I was going through my change and came across a 2002-D penny that has the word "trust" stamped very faintly by the date. I'm still trying to take a good enough picture to show but I'll try to be descriptive for now. Along the edge of the coin starting next to the mint mark, you can see most of the "T". It's raised so I know it's a stamp and not just an impression from another coin. The rest of the word trust begins at the end of the date stamp. Has anyone seen anything like what I'm describing? I'm going to putts around with my phone and lightning to see if I can get a decent enough picture. But any information until then would be helpful. Thanks!

Without images then we can't say much. It doesn't sound like any error and isn't a variety so the images are extremely important.

I did my best to get a good picture. It's obvious with the naked eye, but not in a picture so much. So I Went ahead and tried a negative exposure and it seemed to work a little to show the "T" better. Even if it turns out to be nothing, I think it's kinda neat. Let me know what you think it might be. Even if it's nothing. :-) p.s. look next to the mint mark. It's there! :-)

If you have to post an image like this to see it then it is a shadow from toning, bubble plating or something common and wouldn't be of interest to collectors.

I agree with Daniel.
And, we would do better with a normal photo as that is what we are used to working with. Thanks

Meh. Forget it. I've succumbed to the fact that I Probably have nothin. I'm still going to hold on to it of course. It really stood out when sorting change the other day. And to be honest I'm more interested in nickels and state quarters than I am Lincoln memorial pennies.
