By no means an expert, it appears as though this cent "jumped" and rotated within the collar of the press in between a second strike. Multiple strikes are employed for proof coinage to bring out the devices, which this does not appear to be. However, circulated coinage does from time to time receive more than a single strike of the dies. What ever the cause, if genuine, it would be worth sending off for third party certification.

@pb1998, first welcome to CCF. Second, normally when we see these types of things, they are obviously made by squishing multiple coins together in a vice. Yours does not look like that, so I'm thinking it might be legit. Let some others weigh in for confirmation.

from pennyboy I can tell everyone observing this coin of mine that it was found searching thru a batch of pennies that I've been collecting for over 40 years. nerver really looked at them until couple weeks ago.so I've had this penny since 1998[the year I retired from the Navy].could not believe what I saw because I'm not a coin collector.Well am now.

The impression is reversed for such coins. This is a genuine error IMO. The most obvious evidence is the residual date is very clear on the shoulder and is faded in the field, exactly what you'd expect for this type of error.

one other thing about this penny I just remembered I was orginally looking for a 1998 wide AM.So this coin collecting rookie would like recommdations on how I should proceed.Should I send this coin in to be graded ? is it worth more that way? do ya'll think the condition is nice for a 1998? Approx what could this cion be worth? I think its a one of a kind. tell me what you think after good exam.
