Lincoln Memorial with Batwings

#1 Unread post by Aaugust14 » Sun May 14, 2017 2:06 am

I believe this is a rotation stamp error on a 1985 Lincoln penny?
What do y'all think...

At first, I thought a possible clash, but closer look makes me think it might just be a plating bubble with die transfer. Zinc cents are notorious for poor quality.

Not sure what you mean by rotational stamp.

No rotational stamp, no such mint, and the images are don't good enough to determine what happened. I see a lot of "marks" that look like PMD.

Rotation as if it were stamped more than once, it got stuck mid rotation and was stuck like a record on skip...
