  • 1998 Lincoln Penny Lamination Plating Error

    Here is a 1998-P Lincoln Penny with a Plating/Lamination Error. Right of Lincoln's forehead the Copper Plating is broken away from the penny. Interestingly, the coined letters still have the copper on them. However, all around the letters is the exposed zinc core of the penny.

    It is kind of a "What the H" thing.

    This coin appears to be soiled or glue marks, nothing more or less ...

      I do not know what coin you were looking at....BUT....this coin DOES NOT have glue or soiled areas. The lighter area of the coin IS without copper plating, period, and the lighter area is pure zinc.

      I am curious as to how you came to the conclusion that the coin is soiled or has glue on it. What indicated this to you? You cannot see the edge of the copper, you cannot see the lighter zinc area on the coin photo that is angled? You cannot see the darker copper on the three letter? You cannot see the surface difference between the letters and the surrounding light zinc area? That would be the first photo.
