Good day all, an old-timer told me to go to cc and check a 1968 penny.the owner thinks he sees an 8/7.He said he wants me to see it and tell him what I think. Well...by seeing the coin before I even zoom in I can see what looks to be a so called 7.I don't have tons of years of experience like others but I have a few years. I saw a lot of coins with 8/7 and this coin have the look of one. The old-timer told me all he can say is if this coin is what the owner think it is.. it will go fast. I have never seen or heard of a 1968 8/7 penny This could be the first. Take that thing and get it check.. that could have all the damage in the world. It look like a 8/7 I will bet it's a 50/50 shot.I am a welder and it look like all of the breaks on the 8 seem to to be caused by the 7.

Doc if I'm reading your post right you are talking about an 8 over 7. we are talking about a 7 over 8. Which makes no sense. I mean how could that happen

Is there a possibility we could see a close up image of this coin, after all that would be the only avenue for experts to offer help.

Just a damaged coin by a vending machine:

Note the tops of the date devices are pushed to look like a '7, but the base of the devices are a normal '8'. Just a damaged coin. The dies have all the design on them since 1908, so it can't be an over date. Just damage.

Doc-- I suggest the owner of the coin in question submit it to a reputable third party grading service for evaluation/attribution (PCGS, NGC, ANACS). Or, take it in to an established, reputable coin shop and see what they say--perhaps one in the greater Boston or Albany metro areas. Let us know what develops.

Hello all,
I also have something similar to the one Doc The Welder is talking about, but mine is slightly different and was wondering if someone could lend me their opinion on this one. It's a 1968 D Lincoln cent which looks like a seven underneath the 8. I don't know. There's also some doubling around the face and the lettering. Someone help me out.
Thanks again guys.

Keep in mind the dates are not punched into the dies. The whole design is passed down the line orderly:

So there is not '7' on the coin. If there were, it would be raised up like the '8'. Just a contact mark on the '8' and a lot of imagination with our brains telling us something is there, when there isn't.
