Of course, they have to be in error. IHC 1877's are through-the-roof while the other dates are almost as cheap as Lincolns.

Excluding proofs, I have a few contenders:

This MS64 1892-O 10C RPD FS-301 (FS-008.5):


CoinFacts doesn't list a survival estimate for this variety, but apparently just 7 have been graded by PCGS and I believe just 1 at NGC.

This 1866-S $2.5 has a survival estimate of 200 in any grade:



And this 1871 25C MS61:


Survival estimate is 300 in any grade, 35 in MS60 or better.

Shortest survival rate? Come on fellas, everyone knows the top contender....


Even with Billions minted, in 100 years examples will be scarce!

Just the fact that you took the time to download it to computer makes it 3X funnier!

Mike, we get these all the time from noobie cherrypicker coin lotto winner wannabes all the time as the next best mint error to have surfaced. Go to eBay, "error coins" and take a look, it ain't just the counterfeiters we gotta fight!

Crazyb0, that looks like the rare 2005-d zincoln pavement strike.

In 100 years the zincolns will all have dissolved. After a winter of salty Chicago slush they're odd gray bits of metal. The banks refuse to take them.

Based on the PCGS Coin Facts survival estimates, my lowest-survival coins are all half eagles from SF.

1866-S Motto; 80 survive.




1870-S; 85 survive.




1873-S; 100 survive.

Nice coins jaobler. The 1854-74 S half eagles are tough to find. The eagles are tougher.

less than 10 known survivors (R3): 1684 half silver Ducaton from the Spanish Netherlands (Antwerp, reign of King Charles II reference: Delmonte 337)



this coin was recovered in 1981 from the VOC ship 't Vliegend Hert built in 1729 and shipwrecked in 1735 near the coast of Vlissingen, Zeeland
