NGC 1c 1960-D Lincoln Cent on Dime Planchet AU58

NGC 1960-D large date Lincoln cent on silver dime planchet. A scarcer date/mint for cents on dime planchets.

We can find a total of 9 examples that have sold at auction or in our archives, for this date and mint (large or small date combined.)

The coin has the design of a cent, but is struck on a silver dime planchet. Off-metals occur, usually, when the planchet of one coin type is left in a planchet bin that another coin type is being used for. The planchets are then all fed into a press, and the "wrong planchet"  is struck in the press set up for the other denomination.

AU58 with a hint of gold toning around the design.
