I'm starting to get a little jealous of everyone's great finds while I toil with skunks over and over and over and over...
I sold my bed, but not my stereo.

Very nice BIGm, congrats!

It's around AU-53, worth $275. CONGRATS!
1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

There certainly can't be too many of those left in rolls. Nice one.
May 04, 2012, 08:49 PM
That makes some of those skunks from the past not smell quite so bad! WTG, great find!
May 04, 2012, 11:15 PM
I'm fine with it being nominated. Yes its real lol. Thinking about sending it off to get graded. It will increase the value of it.

You might first want to solicit opinions in the Coins forum on it's grading potential. There are some knowledgeable posters there that don't frequent this forum. In particular, CoinKid has a very good handle on the process as he will be working for one of the TPG services starting this summer. The pictures you supplied should be fine.

I'm no expert on counterfeit fakes so I won't dismiss it as such. For now, you have a heck of a find.
I viewed the enlarged photos to detect signs of cleaning. Sadly, at some point in it's lifetime, it has been cleaned indicated by the striations in the field caused by rubbing and the dirty halos around the stars and lettering. I didn't want you to send it off to PCGS only for it to be returned ungraded. NGC would still grade it.
