All of this helps discern the different topics from each other and is much less confusing to members who want to help.
Topic titles like "how did this happen" or "help" often get ignored and lost in the confusion.

1997 Lincoln cent d double ear?

#1 Unread post by Chebilcoins »

Is this coin a example of a double ear, if not is the quality still worth grading?

What your looking for is the 1997 No Mintmark . Not a Denver Mint .
Your coin on further examination shows what Appears to be a small "Die Chip" on the bottom of the Lobe .

I assume still not worth having it graded? Would the " die chip add any additional value

Your thinking totally wrong. 99.99% of coins you will find searching rolls are not worth getting graded. Unless it is a very major variety/error. Look at PCGS coin prices
