Penny with no head?

Recommended Posts

Hi all - I am not an experienced numismatist so I wonder if anyone can identify this weird coin: I once had a Lincoln penny that seemed to have a normal reverse showing the Lincoln Memorial. The obverse was slightly concave, and showed a ghostly Lincoln memorial (no portrait of lincoln, no date, no mint mark, no words). Is this a well-known condition, or something else? I will post a pic if I can locate the coin this weekend.


EDIT: After reading a few more posts, I think I can categorize it as a broadstrike, although it seems to be perfectly round; not oblong, and definitely no words or numbers are visible.
