In god we trust on the front of my 1979 Lincoln cent....tne whole word in is missing also the g in god is missing and the s and t in trust are missing as well I've looked at it under a microscope and it appears to me that the missing letters were never stamped on the coin at all its pretty cool I've never seen an error like this does anyone have an opinion about it I would greatly appreciate your advice thanks

This is a struck through grease filled die and it is very common to find this.
