1989 D Lincoln Cent---Attacked by The Blob


Recommended Posts

Recently while searching my pocket change I came across this unusual condition<p>At first I just thought that this 1989d cent had a bunch of crud on both the Obverse and Reverse.<br>I grabbed my Eschenbach 9x loupe and discovered that the crud wasn't on the surface but emanating<br>from inside the coin through fissures on both sides of the coin. <p>I probed the hole on the Obverse and found that the substance was some sort of grainy white paste.<p>The only thing I can think of is that this paste is some sort of alloying paste or <br>machinery lubricant that got rolled into the strip before plating and punching of the coin strip.<p>Below the following pics are the links to the really big pictures that should open in a seperate tab for viewing.<p><img src=http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/1/0/2/4/5/7/0/webimg/549220514_o.jpg><p><img src=http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/1/0/2/4/5/7/0/webimg/549220480_o.jpg><p><img src=http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/1/0/2/4/5/7/0/webimg/549220573_o.jpg><p>Click on these for the really big pictures.<p><A HREF=http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/1/0/2/4/5/7/0/webimg/549211955_o.jpg target="_blank"Big Picture1</A><p><A HREF=http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/1/0/2/4/5/7/0/webimg/549211821_o.jpg target="_blank"Big Picture2</A><p><A HREF=http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/1/0/2/4/5/7/0/webimg/549211660_o.jpg target="_blank"Big Picture3</A><p><A HREF=http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/1/0/2/4/5/7/0/webimg/549211468_o.jpg target="_blank"Big Picture4</A><p>By all means chime in. Give your opinion of what the "blob condition" is.
