Can someone help me with these attribution questions?
The coin below appears to have a lump on the O in ONE and a “ridge" running around to the left of O, but no “lump” on the left side, which would be required by the reverses of N-1 and N-39.
Is this really a lump on the O or an expanded continuation of the ridge?
Is what I am calling a ridge on the left side really a lump?
I notice, also, that there are ridges on the right side of the serifs of E in ONE, on the left of C in CENT, on both sides of the E in CENT, and also the left of N and the right of T. Are these just normal “leavings”? What are they called?
I notice a similar ridge on the profile of the head on the Obverse…same thing?
I have seen similar "ridges" on a few other large cents as well.
One last question: Can anyone say how this coin would be attributed?
I am so new at this, I really don’t know where to start, but I am hoping to find a little help here.
