I have a second coin to share today. It is a 1917 Lincoln Cent which was listed on eBay as, "Looks to be a Matte Proof - MUST SEE" with an opening bid of $200.

It is a very special coin indeed since no proof Lincoln Cents were struck in 1917. Good thing the seller was insightful enough to spot it as a proof.

I noticed he has relisted it and has lowered the opening bid to $35.00

Here's another beauty, a very rare error 1990 Lincoln Cent which had an opening bid of only $200.

Oh goodness! Nasty Zincolns

That 1990 Zincoln is incredible - must be the worst example I've ever seen!

@numisrob, perhaps it could be dissolved completely in acid and the resulting solution sold-you could sell it as a "make your own" coin-some assembly required!

I really hate it when people misrepresent items.

I have dealt with the person who sells these rolls of 2009-P nickels in the past. Said person has always been VERY clear as to what they're selling, whether that be original BU rolls, low-grade circulated ones, or coins somewhere in between. Said seller typically undergrades the coins they sell.

Perhaps I should ping them to check their records to see when they sold said item to this person.

A "Rare Indian Head Nickel - NO DATE" with a $200 opening bid and $400 BIN.

I'm just curious, if it doesn't have a date, how do you know it's rare?

Another goodie tonight, a 1959-D Lincoln Cent "With Catastrophic Die Damage" and an opening bid of $48.

I think the die damage at the mint was caused by the interaction between an asphalt parking lot and a car tire.

May be the rare Indian Head variety with the futuristic date that no one has ever heard about . .

How about an Edward VII Canadian cent with traces of original lustre?
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/353948097626

Looks more like traces of non-original paint!
