    What Pennies to look for when CRH

    I have been pulling all the coppers and wheat's out when CRH, but wondered if there are any others I should be looking for. I always check the 72's for the double die as well as the 55's. I know all the key dates/mints, but in the years from 59-81, are there others I should be checking for that are worth money? Some mistrikes, errors etc...?

    Look for Wide AM's and personally, a 1969 doesn't pass through my fingers without first checking for the S mint mark. If an S is found, then I verify if it is the elusive double-die. Look through my past posts and you'll find a thread where a CRH'er found one after re-checking his hoard of copper. I believe the last one to go to auction fetched 400K.

    Whoa, now I feel like checking my copper hoard...

    The '84 doubled ear is something I'm always on the lookout for along with the '92-D ClAM.

    Yep you said it, I check all 1984's for the double ear, and the 1983's have some mint errors too so I look over them.
    From now on I'll be checking my 1969's.

    What else to look for? Bright red uncirculated looking coppers. It's amzing to get a penny from the 60's looks like it's never hit the ground.
    Those good condition reds, mint errors, etc.

    Just spend time where you can closely inpecting pennies, once it's in your mind, the mint errors will stick out like a sore thumb if you have good lighting while searching.
