Hi guys,

I have this 1975 Lincoln Error Penny with a Misaligned Die on the Obverse and vertical stripes running thru the metal. Is this due to an improper alloy mix or roller marks after ejecting the coin?

Thanks very much.

Hi Rosalita,

I think those are roller lines. If it was an improper alloy it'd be on both sides of the coin. Others should chime in too that have more experience than I.

I have 2 woodies in my collection and both only have the improper alloy mix on one side. One has it on the Obverse and the other has it on the Reverse.

Woodies usually only occur on the older LWCs.

My first impression was roller lines.

If true, then you don't have real "woodies". If you think it through, how can a coin have an "improper alloy mix" only on one side? The metal would be the same regardless which side would be viewed. I guess the mixture could be more pronounced when viewed on one side over the other, but the mixture remains the same with the coin. If you have "woodgrain" on only one side, it would be from marks ON the coin, not IN it. And if the "marks" are only ON the coin not IN the coin, it's only PMD.

Roller lines are surface. They wear off. These appear when the BU finish is gone. On a woody, the coin can wear down, and the wood affect is still present.
