1963 penny, need help

#1 Unread post by Scpeyton31 »

Hello,

Thanks for reading. I have a 1963 penny, that I noticed looked like it possibly was mistruck the first time and corrected. I can't tell exactly what is wrong with it. I would appreciate any help. I tried to take different pics, some under a microscope, some with just my phone zooming in.

Any help would be great.

There is a second dot on the end of "Unum" and what appears to be an extra corner or raised area on the Memorial building.

These look like remnants of die clashes or something like that. Very minor anomalies.

I agree.

Read up on the minting process ad you will find there is no one who checks every coin and then double strikes them to correct them. It would be impossible anyway as billions are made. And for perspective...one billion seconds is 33 1/3 YEARS.
