    I might hurt your feelings...but here goes. Just curious...Have you done any research and/or study on coins. You have many, many posts where you are seeking opinions on minor issues or damage that should have been answered quite a few times over in your almost 300 posts. Don't get me wrong. If you have a legitimate question, go ahead and post it, but by now, you should have learned what the majority of your inquiries are. It is time to start putting more effort into education and less into posting stuff like this.

    You cant hurt my feelings sir... was just enjoying posting some finds... And reassuring what I have learned, thats all. Are you getting complaints or is this just yr personal view on the situation? If you are getting complaints then I will stop posting my finds, thought thats what a forum was for, dont get me wrong, that may not be correct. Anyhow, i appreciate the post and the heads up on either ur view or complaints. I am bi polar and take meds that damage my short term memory so i wasnt trying to annoy anyone... have a nice day

    The forum is dedicated to learning all about Lincoln cents and all questions and photos are welcomed. Bob is right. When pros like Bob notice that a member is posting multiple posts about the same thing, it appears that the situation needs some attention. It's just like having to do extra homework assignments in school because we didn't do very well on a test. I am glad that you don't take these things personally because Bob is just trying to help all of us learn more and grow in the hobby.

    Besides studying doubled die listings, which you are already doing... take some time to read threads and look at posted examples on the forum - there's so much great information here. Often times by doing this you will answer some of the questions you've been having and that will help you retain the knowledge better. Also, read the minting process... it usually takes reading it a few times because there's a lot to know... here's the link http://doubleddie.com/58201.html

    You are welcome Dearing! I understand there's a lot to know and at first it may seem like too much! That's why taking the time to study in the beginning is so important. For instance... our Glossary... it is filled with so much great information and photos that provides a great start to understanding different things that we see on Lincolns.

    Nothing personal Dearing. I am sorry if my post came across as mean spirited or anything other than what it was intended. No one complained to me. They are all my observations. The entire 50 years of my numismatic expertise has been geared toward learning and then educating. There comes a point when it seems like folks aren't retaining things and I want to know why. Being redundant is also something that I pay attention to. I wonder why there are 50 posts about die chips or cracks when 2 or 3 should have been sufficient. This forum prides itself in being the best out there. I am not going to let it be anything but the best. The purpose of this forum is NOT to just post and wait for someone to answer for you. The purpose is to point you in the right direction so that you can learn and thereby make the determinations on your own. There are logical steps in accomplishing that and much like any teacher, I see that it is not working in some instances. I merely want to make it better for everybody and I don't want to sign on every day and see the same stuff over and over. I still want to see you here 10 years from now, but as someone who can pass on the correct information to others. Many folks here started off just like that, but are now the ones with all the answers. Could the next one be you?

    The column is PSD... On your 3rd pic there are also hits (PSD) on the rim and field to the west of the memorial... Column 5 (C5) also has hits... When we see designs in random items it is called pareidolia... From our Glossary -

    Pareidolia: The phenomenon where people see patterns or objects in otherwise random data. People often “see” extra design elements that aren’t really there in a coin’s damaged areas, plating blisters, stains, etc.

    Something I see when ever I look at coins
    The area under the S in EPU does look like a lamination that has fallen out... A little hard to tell for sure because the pic is a little to blurry... Here is some info on laminations from Error Ref http://www.error-ref.com/?s=lamination they cover a lot of different types of lams!!!
