I'm not one to even look for errors, but while putting together a set I noticed that the 1950 D cent was smaller than average. Any one have any ideas or saw this? It actually falls out of a folder, while another one of the same date doesn't.




Standard Size


1950 D

You need to take the measurements when the coin is on a flat surface. I noticed that they are tilted in the pictures, which makes the measurements inaccurate.

I measured it again, totally flat. I measured several, the regular cents are from 18.98 to 19.1 MM and the smaller one is 18.68 MM.
