NGC 5c 1978 Jefferson Nickel on Cent Planchet MS-64 Red


Off-metal 1978 Jefferson nickel struck on a Lincoln cent planchet. The coin weighs 3.1 grams, and is copper. The pre-strike damage came from the planchet's having been somehow damaged prior to strike. Possibly it was stuck in a planchet bin's swinging door, or possibly somewhere else. Nice coin and scarce full red.
