Hello, I was hoping someone could tell me if this is a 8 over a 7. Any extra info would be appreciated so I can understand what I'm looking at in future coins I come across

There's no such thing as that. It doesn't exist. It might be Pareidolia.

I know what Machine Doubling and dye deterioration is.The two lines that look like a 7 wouldn't come up as the dye deteriorated and I've never seen Machine Doubling double something other then what was on the dye. Also definitely not Pareidolia. Did you look at the coin or just cut and paste a generic response? Someone told me something similar before and turns out I was right about my coin.

Looks to me like a little damage on the right side of the 8 making it look a little like a straight line.

I did look at the coin and gave you my answer. No need to get defensive.

to the CCF!

I have to agree. It looks like the 8 has been damaged. It's not an overdate as that would have been seen before on a 1968 cent. There wouldn't have been any reason to use an older die.

He can post all the pictures he likes but it's not going to change the fact that there is no such thing as an 8 over a 7 on a 1968 Lincoln Memorial cent.

If YOU think it's an 8 over 7, then by all means submit it for 3rd party variety verification and slabbing.

This is one of those situations where I will AGAIN offer to eat a well-cooked crow pie if the coin comes back in a major 3rd party slab as an 8 over 7 variety.

Once you get it back please post pictures of the slab. Will be patiently waiting!

(FYI, it's "die deterioration" not "dye deterioration".

And yes, I spent several minutes studying your photo trying to imagine a 7 under the 8, and there just isn't a 7 to be found. Plus I know there isn't a 8 over 7 Memorial cent in existence. It would be near impossible to make just one coin, there'd have to be many of them.

You are seeing something (a 7) that isn't there, sorry.

Sorry if I came off rude. I read my message and I didn't mean it to come off like that.
I just got back home and I will take a few more pics.

To say there's no such thing would mean you have looked through every 1868s ever minted. But it's highly unlikely that such a coin exists.

I appreciate the feed back and I again apologize for sounding harsh. I've been forced into writing and reading a lot of legal books and it's carried over into my writing.

Twelve years of experience and learning the minting process tells me it does not exist. Anything else said trying to convince us is just beating a dead horse I guess you meant 1968-S instead of 1868-S not that you could be wrong
