    1984-P Lincoln errors? Please help, I'm new!

    Hi everyone!

    i hope everyone is having a nice day so far. I im new to coin collecting an I've tried to navigate my way as I go. The one thing that seems to be giving me a bit of trouble is knowing if my coins have the errors or not, since they are so slight. If someone wouldn't mind helping me with this question regarding the double ear and double down and double boarder circle on my 1984-P lincoln I'd really really appreciate it. I have attached a picture of both the front and back of my penny. I'd appreciate feedback if my penny does match the error pennies even if on just one of the levels. Thank you so much!

    Hello Apypolylogy! Welcome to the LCF! We would need a better photo to tell if your coin is a doubled die ear Variety. But, here is a website where you can search different years and mint marks of coins to see good photos! Just type in 1984 and click P, the doubled die ear is the very first one on the list.

    Not sure what you are referring to "double down and double boarder circle" please explain that for us!

    Hi there! Thank you so much for the welcome and the information. That was a auto correct that I missed apparently. I just meant it looked like double double die. Sorry about that 😞 I have attached a closer photo using a magnifying glass, is that better? I've seen picture of what it looks like, I guess I'm just looking for confirmation that either in right by someone who knows better or that I'm wrong in what I was looking at. I hope this isn't an imposition or sounds nuts it's my first coin I've inspected.

    You have a completely normal ear there. Not a doubled die. Welcome to the forum.

    That's okay, a lot of us make mistakes without the help of auto correct
