invdot.gifThis is the famous 1955 Doubled (Double) Die Lincoln Wheat Cent. A Doubled Die coin is created when the hub that is used to make the individual dies is misaligned during one of the impression onto one of the dies. This is one of the most striking examples of this kind of error. invdot.gifFor a larger picture of the doubling on the obverse of a different coin (which will open in a new window), you may click here (Large image Courtesy of anaconda.rare.coins on Ebay).
