1950-D Lincoln penny


Recommended Posts

The mint mark would normally become "filled" due to a broken post.  When the mint mark was  punched into the master hub (for D and P marks) you would have a small post that causes the inside impression of the mint mark.  Sometimes, this post would break, either partially or entirely.  That would cause a "filled" mint mark when the planchet is struck.

Nice errors to find, but it really does not add any premium to the coin.

And welcome to the forums!  If you have any questions, feel free to ask away.
