Die Deterioration

Coins | Stan McDonald - author

Die Deterioration

Die deterioration is common in some Lincoln cents examples. Die deterioration is caused by a die not correctly heat treated. The stampings on Lincoln cents appear irregular, with letters and numbers flat and oddly shaped. Some of these coins can be confused with doubling, but none of these coins are of added value.

That does looked doubled. I've seen some before.

So much to learn about minting of coins. Very interesting topic of errors, minting processes, and normal wear etc.
