Thanks for your help
    Those pics are just samples of blistered plating...
    I can not tell if there is abrasions showing on your coin but I do see what appears to be linear plating blisters (bubbles)... Here is some info on die abrasions from the Glossary -

    Abraded Die: A die that has had metal removed from it by some abrasive means in an attempt by the mint to remove damage from the die. This damage is most commonly from a die clash. A cent struck from an abraded die will show raised lines corresponding to the scratches made in the die by the abrasion. Over-abrading the die can result in a loss of detail on the die, which will result in weak or missing devices on the coin. (Perhaps the most well-known example of over-abrading is the 1937D “3-legged” buffalo nickel.) In the case of Lincoln memorial cents, a common result of over-abrasion is a cent with missing designer’s initials, known as “no FG” cents.



    Error Ref. also gives explanations of all kinds of errors - http://www.error-ref.com/part_iv__die_errors/ Wether plating blisters or die abrasions they are errors... Blisters are planchet related and die abrasions are die related... Hope that helps a little!!!

    It is amazing how the blistered plating could be so even under Abe. Probably whether it is blistered plating or abraded it's not worth anything more than face value... sorry I didn't understand earlier... I'm new to collecting & being new here. Thanks!

    This is a pretty common thing. Here is one I just found that I figured I would show you. It's a 2001P.

    No need to be sorry... All of us started out as newbies... In mid 1982 the mint switched from a solid CENT planchet to a copper plated zinc core planchet... Even after 25 years there is still a problem with contamination on the cores... The first few years were really bad but they have improved some what!!!

    Sorry for the delay. I've been away for a few days & trying to get caught up on things. I appreciate your photos & information very much. I noticed it said that it is considered an error. That was what I was trying to find out! The funny thing is I found info on my 2009 Lincoln cent, Wexler WDDR-043, beautiful coin but unable to find any listing for this coin. Will keep searching. Thanks again.. it's very appreciated!

    Nice to see you back Deesaw! What I'm seeing on your attached coin in Post #1 does look like either plating blisters or it could be plating disturbance as it is also visible above Lincoln as well. I do not see the doubled thumb in your first photo though... you mentioned the Wexler WDDR-043. Is there a photo somewhere else I have missed?

    Thank you very much for your reply & the information. What I am wondering is can I call this an error coin? I couldn't find any info on it online, but maybe I was putting in the wrong search. I am sending a photo of the WDDR-043. I didn't send it before because I knew what it was. I got this at an charity auction in 2010. The name attached to it was the seller so I would remember. I purchased from other sellers also. Have one that is labeled "Catfish", but I haven't taken a picture of it yet.

    Thank you Deesaw for the update and photo of your WDDR-043! That is a very nice auction find! Sure... we would love to see the coin labeled "catfish"!
