Hi all. I am not a collector, although I must say this has been fun. I found a butter bowl from my grandma's old stuff that was nothing but wheat pennies ranging from 1917 to 1958. About 200 of them. I've been researching them the past few days and inspecting them. I found one appears to have the number 1 stamped backwards on the date. Any input? Anything of value or just a fluke?

Thanks!
Melissa

What does that mean? lol. I'm am clueless about this stuff. Does that increase value, or is it just a fluke. I don't know if any of these have any value as they are all circulated it appears.

@melevebos, first welcome to CCF. Second, a die chip occurs when a small piece of the die used to strike coin flakes off. This area then gets filled with "extra" metal each time that die is used. A small die chip (like this one) really doesn't increase the value of this coin. Sometimes they occur in interesting or humorous locations, and those can add a little value.

Well for sure we think so.

The main goal of this site is education, so you should hopefully learn more each time you visit, whether you are posting your own questions or just reading through old threads to see what others have asked previously.

IIRC, this die chip on "1" is listed in Jean Cohen's "The Classification and Values of Errors in the Lincoln Cent." My copy is loaned out right now. Does anyone have a copy handy to check? I know there are very similar die chips listed in Cohen for 1955-S and 1957-D, because I have run into those at shows.

As noted, it is a die chip and a fairly well known one. It would add a small value to the coin. However, one was just sold as a totally bogus "inverted 1" on ebay for $36. People should do more research before buying something labeled as "one of a kind."

If you have a circulated coin and some clay you could press it on to a common coin and make a copy. Then you would have the reflection of what a die looks like. (except for the rim. Never use clay on a collectible coin)
