A moderately worn coin. Design will be clear but will be worn flat in most areas and lacking detail.
obverse - Lincoln's outline is clear. Ear and cheek detail is nearly flattened, but will show some detail around the ear lobe and mouth. All major folds in the coat will be visible, as will some bow tie detail, except on weakly struck examples. Some lettering may be flattened, but will be cleary visible. Rim will be complete. Date and mint mark will be clear and completely visible.
reverse - The wheat ears will show about half of full detail around the grains, and more than one half of the lines will be visible on at least one side. Legend will be completely legible. The O in ONE CENT may be flat on early branch mint cents.
