*** Moved by Staff to a more appropriate forum. ***

So up until today I have mainly looked for wheat pennies major culls or other major problems and nice looking coins to make a roll of every LMC minted.
I began error/variety searching today by separating all the 1992 P and D coins and the 1998, 1999, 200 coins. I was of course searching for the 1992 close "AM" and 1998-200 Wide "AM" varieties. I think it would be cool to have an area on the forum just for Lincoln varieties and errors since there are so many of them. I would like to get more involved in searching for them and have a place to see what is collectable and what is just another penny. Pictures of your finds, questions, links, and discussion about the different varieties would be very cool. All the errors in one place will also make it easy for people like me to learn what to watch for and how to spot it. What do you error experts have to start off this thread? Happy hunting and lets see some pics.

That's a great idea Chriscoinmaster. I too started looking through Lincolns for the 1998-2000 Wide AM varieties. In fact I looked through my first batch not but 30 minutes ago. Funny you posted this thread, kinda spooky. lol

Good list for varieties. no idea how you got the list for key/semi-key memorials? None of the San Fran business strikes are keys? 1960 small date and 1970s small date are keys.

amida17 - that key/semi key dates list comes from the thread I linked that drdave put up a couple weeks ago. Reminds me I should go thank him :P (oh, and I see you've seen it hehe)
http://goccf.com/t/88992

yotie - Oh yeah the 2009. I pull em and check em but forgot to add it to the list. Probably because it's an easy one for me to remember

Right...ok..hence the statistical ratings. Lol.
I geuss based on mintage he's right.
I wish value followed that logic though....I've found at least a roll of each of his "keys".
Not sure I agree with his findings though.
Anyway I always enjoy the hunt! Really that's what its about!

I like to think that the numbers for the memorials represent some potential. When we get as far from them as we are the Wheaties list it may be near impossible to grab a 1968s from circulation. ..and as they get more and more rarely found the value will come in.

I agree except you need to factor in other variables. 68 was the first S mint cent made since 1955. Probably highly hoarded in high grades.
Take the 2009 LP4 as an example by far the lowest mintage at 129,600,000. By this logic it should be THE key of memorials. Yet I have over 500 in at least MS63.
I guess what I am saying is that high grade (MS68+) is really what will make a memorial a "Key".
I dunno just a thought...

interesting thoughts on the keys. I am hoarding away a roll of each LMC for the future. If one turns out to be a key in years to come, my heirs will own a roll of them after I am gone. I am 21, so by then the coins will be well over 100 years old I would hope. By this time an idea of if there will be some value should show up.
Anyone have any of these Lincoln varieties to show off.
I searched a few of my little brothers and sisters piggy banks when I went over for a visit. I came up with about 70 coins from 1998-2000 and 1992 but found no WAMs or CAMs.
I hope this thread takes off, but we need more posts and finds. Someone find something cool please haha

I think your list is ok, especially for beginners. The problem is it is nowhere near complete. There are to many for any one list. Also if you only check for the ones you have listed, you may potentially tossing another. Not to mention you could be lucky enough to find a undiscovered variety. Just food for thought.

I LOVE this list. I am a beginner and I feel overwhelmed. Before I read this thread, I only saved wheaties and a couple of the more well-known keeps (if I found any). This helps a TON.

Thanks guys!
