1931-S Lincoln Cent added mintmark.

2 posts in this topic

This mintmark looks added to me. I have attached 4 pictures showing that S appears to be added to coin to create ultra rare 1931-S. I drew black mark arrows in the pictures indicating the presence that this coin had a mintmark added to coin. The area around the mintmark is disturbed. You can also see tooling marks in forgers attempt to blend mintmark into field. Also there is a seam where added S and field come together. In addition the coloration and texture of the mintmark does not match the numeral digits in the date. Overall you can see that the S is just sitting on the coin and not part of the original coin.

please let me know your thoughts?
