I've seen a lot of PMD ,but I'm having a hard time believing that these "grooves" were added by some nut case after the coin was put in circulation. Anyway...Thanks for your thoughts on a possible cause.
Hey Guys.. Just got through looking at one of Coop's replies to a post about Ghost Images and I remembered having this 2016 one cent coin. It took a 24 hour bath in Acetone twice and the ghost refused to go away. If it's glue, it's some mighty good stuff..Seriously...this is a weird one, but makes a great conversation piece. Thanks..Jim
I found this 1972 one cent coin in my big jar of "pennies" and after looking at the various sites suggested by CCF, it appears to be a doubled die .. Vista 003,3-0-I-CW. I'm not real sure because the coin has some circulation damage, but it sure does fit the Vista attributions. The reverse is actually a lot nicer than the obverse in my opinion. I would appreciate your opinions. Thanks..Jim
Thanks again for your comments. I'm kind of excited about finally having a doubled die and want to make sure it doesn't turn into zinc dust. Here are some photos showing that there are die chips on column 1 and 2 as well as a small die crack north of ear. Great references Coop and Spence... Slowly, but surely I'm' starting to get the hang of using the various site to either confirm or reject. my conclusions on evaluating a coin.
I have a couple of post 1982 doubled die one cent coins that I don't want to turn into zinc rot dust. Has anyone come up with a way to preserve them other than TPG encapsulating? Currently, they are in 2X2 cardboard holders. Thanks..
Just finding time to review the comments and post about my 1955 one cent coin. The photos from Kygu4545 and RW1010 appear to be coins from the same "batch" as mine. However, I think the reeded edging is more pronounced on my coin. The reeded edge goes partially into the clip, but not entirely. I find it very interesting that there are other coins with the same edge in the community considering some of the posted left concerning the authenticity of the coin. Once again, thanks to all who have posted comments and opinions..Jim
