Eighteen 1959 Lincoln Cents with Die Cracks

#1 Unread post by mtvalleysharon » Mon Mar 16, 2020 9:46 pm

I bought two rolls of 1959 Lincoln Cents in clear soft plastic rolls with caps on both ends. All of them appear to be in uncirculated condition. Some of these pennies have one or two small carbon spots. Some have 10-15 spots. Eighteen of these pennies have a die crack across Lincoln’s temple with a chip. They all have a chip, but the cracks vary in length. The three pictures illustrate the length ranging from the shortest to the longest. Should I sell these separately, or as a set of eighteen so you can see the progression of increasingly longer die cracks?

These are very common and some have dubbed this "cracked skull" but not enough premium to worry about selling.
