194 (?) Lincoln cent


Recommended Posts


Hi all you gals and guys.

This is my first try at sending a picture of a coin. It was done with Paint Shop Pro and a scanner.


I took the coin to a gentleman coin dealer yesterday and he is as certain as I am that this coin is original and the problem is likely a thinner than normal planchet that was struck and caused the 'error'.


The coin came from either a 1,000 or 500 sealed penny bag I purchased a few weeks ago.

I doubt anyone would take the time to fake something like this and put it in a bag to sell.

The coin has no file marks and has a fairly even and good patina, and as you can see, is a bit dirty.


Can anyone tell me what kind of error it is? And, if possible what grade you might give it.


Thanks for your input.

not worth much but looks real i have atleast 10 of these and 3 of them were from the same roll of 1999 pennies!!


Thanks Dustin.

I guess I will keep looking at my enormous collection of pennies and maybe I will find one that is actually 'rare'.
