:patriot:
Hello everyone. Daniel I have been a fan of yours for years. I love that you say what's right, and .don't try to fool us about anything. You and Mr Lawson are my go to guys.
I've been collecting for about 4 years now, and can't get enough. So far I have like 4 notebooks full of notes, both sides, and I'm working on my fifth. And that's just coins. LOL
SO please let me know when I can upload some pics. You are going to love it. It's a 1963 cent that is plated,,, but the issue is what looks like an upside down 2 where the S should be in TRUST in the motto. I can't see any scratches or funny business anywhere around the 2. But if it is in fact an upside down 2, or even backwards too, wouldn't it have to be on the die? It has my brains twisted.
Please reply my friend.
Thanks,,,, FooFighter

Welcome to the forum. You're looking at the wrong things. You want to look for known varieties like doubled dies and RPMS, all the anomalies on coins will just waist your time. Look for known stuff until you learn what the good stuff looks like.

Yes sir. I agree. I looked all over Wexlers, Lincoln Cent Resource, Copper Coins. I apologize I should have mentioned that.
I couldn't figure out what to call it, so I just went down and checked every post for a 1963 cent. Nothing. I do finally have a Doubled Die I found, but this 63 cent has moved to the forefront. Lol
If you get a sec, which I know could be in about 10 years probably, lol, i think you will be intrigued.
And trust me, I have hundreds of pics of MD coins I have found while searching for DDs. I do have an RPM as well, but again, this penny is too cool.
So please, let me know if you'd like to see it.
Thank you sir,, Douglas
