NGC 5c 1964-D Jefferson Nickel on Cent Planchet MS-63 Brown


Off-metal 1964-D nickel struck on a Lincoln cent planchet. The coin is copper, and is the metal and weight of a Lincoln cent. The error occurred when a cent planchet was fed into a press striking nickels, and so has the design of a nickel but the metal of a cent. One of the more common dates for nickels on cents, but still scarce.

NGC MS-63 Brown with mint red still present and good luster.
