PCGS 1c Lincoln Cent Mid-Stage Counterbrockage Obverse MS-64 Brown


No-date copper Lincoln cent with a mid-stage counterbrockage, with the design raised, and spread out and much of the lettering and some of the design missing.

Counterbrockages occur when a planchet is struck on top of an already struck coin, it then sticks to the obverse die and becomes a die cap, and then the brockage making cent beneath it is ejected from the striking chamber. Then that die cap begins to strike incoming planchets. The coins struck will be counterbrockages, with a faint obverse design, which will be "raised" and will be somewhat vague and spilling over the coin's rim.
