Ive heard a Spiked Head technically refers to pennies. I don't know if that's true or not but I was feeling a little left out with all the other ones being posted recently so here's one you don't see every day. It's a little weaker leading from the O to the edge of the coin but it's complete.

Very nice find! "Spiked Heads" technically refers to Lincoln Memorial Cents, but they can also happen on other denomination too.

It counts in my book!

I think any coin with a bust similar to a Lincoln should be included, but maybe they are only catalogued on Lincolns because they occur more frequently on them.

Spruett, I think that you're correct. On Lincoln Cents, it happens a lot. On the denominations (except Nickels, since Die Are common), it seems to be harder to find "Spiked Heads".
