Mint Errors

#1 Unread post by george.cedar » Tue Jan 03, 2017 12:22 pm

Hi,
I seem to be having a problem adding pictures.

Being new I’m not sure how this works so I’ll just start and see what transpires.
I have two Lincoln pennies that I’m not sure are mint errors. One is a 1920 cent with the word “ONE CENT” stamped into either side of the coin above the normality of the original coin. The other is a 1956 BU with a circular pattern on the reverse.

Any help would be appreciated.

The "One Cent" stamped coin is post-mint damage. Looks like another cent was smashed into this one. (Lettering is incuse and reversed.)

Would need to see the other coin to determine cause.

I agree with mhonzell as well.
