1970-S Lincoln Cent : Ch BU : 1DO-016
Reference Item Number: 190104049
Early die states of this die show very clear separation in the motto, but are quite scarce to rare. Not much more common is this later die state example which shows clear extra width to the motto letters, but the separation is fuzzy and a bit more difficult to detect than the photos in the books might show you.
As a seller I believe in full disclosure by way of a detailed description and large, clear photographs when warranted, but many less expensive and bulk items make more sense to carry with 'sample' photographs rather than photographing each individual lot sold. For that reason, if the description above specifies that a stock image is used, be aware that the items you will receive are in like kind to the images provided, but WILL NOT be the exact same items.
