So as I'm tearing my way threw a very nice $25 box of pennies I found some very interesting coins. This 1999 here has a pretty cool strike threw. That is if I'm using the right terminology. What do you thing. Nice coin or staged,faked, who knows.

. Not a strike through. It is PMD caused from a bench vise.Use the search box upper left of page.

You'll find tons of odd coins but most of them are going to be damaged in some way. Read up on the minting process, it will help you sort through what is or isn't an error. good luck!

Switch that being brought to my attention. I did belive that it was kinda unusual that the impressions left were reversed. Or backwards. This is whyi post them for appenions. Thanks I do have another one to post in a few. I did find one of those glue jobbies. Lol. They do look rather cool but glue is glue

with John1, I had to look a tad closer to see the letters were backwards therefore inconsistent with a true double strike, but consistent with a vice job. This would be fairly valuable if this was a true flipover double strike .

When they are mirrored, they were transferred from another coin, not from the die. The dies being negatives, creates positive coins. When a positive coin is used, it creates a negative design (mirrored) Hope this explanation helps to keep it in mind.

Agree with all above. I'd save it as an interesting curiosity--properly identified, of course.

Yep, another coin was pressed into this one using a vise. As Coop stated, you can see the reversed lettering on it. Ans that the coin is Bent tells me that it was not done at the mint.
