This one is lovely mint-state brown, later stage mirror brockage. Bought it from a friend who also collects small cents. I absolutely love it. The obverse legend puts this one from 1948-1952.

SPP, that's a great example. For the benefit of the noobies, why not explain just how this type of brockage is formed, it could be a great teaching tool. You know how many garage jobs try to emulate this!

Great error. I'm curious. I'd like to learn how the image and letters got so large without being distorted. I can't figure it out and now I won't be able to sleep tonight, so please clue me in.
