Was going through my collection and realized I had never shared with you all the coin that started my error/variety collection. It is (you guessed it) the same coin my avatar is based on. For those of you who don't know, the 1951/81 large cent is an inverted date as well as an over-date. Interestingly my sister bought it for me as a present and neither she nor the dealer knew they had a variation. So it turned out to be an accidental cherry pick that started my cherry-picking career! Usually I just post questions and grading posts but I thought I'd share this little story with you all.

Thanks guys

That's a great find!

I've always liked the inverted date varieties, I've just never been able to get one myself.
