2019 proof set. Bloody Lincoln? Lol

#1 Unread post by CoinRookie » Fri Oct 11, 2019 2:58 am

Hi everyone! I hope all is well.

I ordered this proof set from the mint and the my lincoln proof penny looks like there's a bloody hole in its head.
What is this? Rust? Straight from the mint?! :confused:

Thanks again for your insight.

It's toning from something that got on the coin before being packaged. I see this often.

Thank you so much guys. Does this also mean that my coin is sort of ruined?

Some people do not like toning on their proof sets but these sets have dropped so much in value that it matters less now than it once did.
