Received My 2019 "Proof W" Penny
2019 September 14

I received the 2019 "W" proof penny today and figured I'd share some pictures. I now have an uncirculated "W" and a proof "W". Just need the reverse proof to complete the set.

These plated cents are still scary. One tiny zinc pop and they are worthless.

I love the idea of those three but I just abhor plated cents.

I have mine in the Danesco Album. I don't believe The zincoins are a great long term storage coin. I've done a little roll hunting and most zincoins look terrible even after only a year old.

My first set of all three came with no issues, and since I have ordered a second set of all three, with only the uncirculated yet to arrive. The second set also have no issues. Thank you for sharing yours.

Zincolns are fine for long term storage if they aren't circulating and the plating is solid.

If the plating is compromised the zinc will oxidize and create a fine powder over where the break in the plating is to protect the zinc underneath. If you keep touching it like in circulation, that fine layer keeps getting knocked off and more zinc is sacrificed to cover the exposed zinc with oxidization.

A coin collector, protecting a new zincoln, has nothing to really worry about the coin will last hundreds of years as long as the plating isn't compromised and it sits unmolested. It will last longer than you will.

The extreme examples in circulation that you see are where the plating is broken and the zinc exposed and circulation keeps knocking off the oxidization of the zinc.

Zincolns get a bad rap because of this "rumor". It's based in truth, a Zincolns if given the right conditions will deteriorate rapidly, but if stored properly it will last just as long as a copper cent. They don't handle the bangs and bumps and wear and tear of circulation well is all it is.

One of my favorites. I just got mine back that I got graded and scored a 69. The only thing I don't like is they put the reverse showing on the face of the grade. I like Lincoln cents cause of Lincoln, not the shield!
