1969-D Lincoln Cent Missing Designer's Initials

Coins | Longstrider

Here is a question for everyone. I found this 1969-D Lincoln Memorial Reverse cent while roll searching. As you can see in the photos below, I hope, it is missing the FG initials of Frank Gasparro, the designer of the reverse. In the book Cherrypickers' Guide-fifth edition it is listed as a variety "Missing Designer's Initials". It has a FS-01-1969-D-901 number. The authers maintain that during die polishing the initials were completely polished away.
