Guesses are good...but knowing where to go to find out is even better 😊

Here is one of the best ways I know for people to learn about these types of situations.

Go to varietyvista.com. Browse the RPM and OMM mint mark listings/pics for the Lincoln cents (listed by year). Spoiler alert: Only one RPM listed...compare the pic and decide if you think it matches.

Also go to this page:
Variety Vista LWC MM Style Pictures
and see the mint mark styles used for all years of the Lincoln cent to get a better idea of what the actual MM (D and S listings are there) for that year so you can judge if there is anything funky with yours.

Now since your cent is a bit worn, you will have to use some judgement and Sherlocking to come up with an answer. But the hunt for finding a variety can also be a fun part of the hobby.
