1968 s penny

#1 Unread post by Aml061288 » Thu Aug 09, 2018 11:31 am

I was given this 1968 s penny when I broke a dollar and it instantly popped out in my vision because of its shine. Also I thought it was a new penny considering the clarity. It also looks like there is doubling on both sides of the coin. Does anyone else see that? I really am new to collecting coins and I'm open to and help from professionals.

it may be possible this coin was "DIPPED" ... ??
.....to give it it's 'WOW' brightness ... ??
i would need to hugeeyes it first hand for a 100% eval.,.... using internet pics for these examples :s

:eureka:
keep in mind, when you hugeeyes 'doubling', it may just be "reflect doubling"or a form of what's known as "mechanical doubling"

What does dipped mean like someone put it in something? Do you think I should have an expert look at it?

:eureka:
"DIPPED" refers to a coin that a coin was 'bathed' in a solution,....to return the 'WOW EYE POP' !

your coin may be a 'PROOF' ?? ... as you say it has a high luster ... :confused:

do you hugeeyes any 'split' on the top of the 6 (six) in the date ??

Dipped means cleaned or brightened but this coin is original and doesn't look like a doubled die.
