Thread: Struck Through with something weird going on

  1. Exclamation Struck Through with something weird going on

    This past weekend I bought a 1960-D small date bag which was in storage since 1964. I've been going through the bag, and one coin is sort of stumping me. I believe it is a struck through, but what gets me is, within the "crater" I see two impressions of the end of the memorial building, clearly and quite separated. I am thinking this coin may have been flipped after the strike with another already struck Lincoln cent on top of it, so they were reverse/reverse, a bit off-center and were struck again.

    I dunno. I've had quite a few strike through's over the years and this one is perplexing.

    What you have is a cent struck through a thin, struck fragment of metal. A foil-like piece of metal (possibly a flake that spalled off another planchet) entered the striking chamber and was struck on top of a planchet. It shifted position slightly before being struck on top of a second planchet. It was then struck into a third planchet (your coin), leaving two sets of normally-oriented incuse design elements. I have seen many similar errors over the years.
