NGC 1c 1977 Lincoln Cent on Defective Planchet 2.4 Grams MS-65 Red


This is a 1977 Lincoln cent which is struck on a 2.4 gram defective planchet, with the coin being thinner than normal, having a rough, granular area at the 7 O'Clock area, and also being an odd, slightly brass color. What exactly caused this coin to be nearly a full gram underweight, and have these other characteristics we're not sure. Interesting coin.

NGC MS-65 Blazing luster and excellent overall eye-appeal.
