NGC 1c 1967 Lincoln Cent Struck on Philippine 5S Planchet MS-62


NGC 1967 Lincoln cent struck on a Philippine 5 sentimos planchet. The coin has golden colored surfaces which are obviously different from a normal Lincoln cent, and is somewhat unusual as an off-metal cent in that it is "gold" colored. Also, the coin weighs 2.48 grams, which is much lighter than a normal cent's weight of 3.1 grams.

The U.S. Mint was striking coins for the Philippines at the time, and this error occurred when this coin's planchet was accidentally fed into a press striking 1967 cents, and then was struck.

NGC MS-62 with overall decent surfaces and good luster.
