    199 Lincoln Cent Penny Error

    Hello to everyone,


    Thanks for letting me be apart of your site!! I received this change a while back and I've been holding onto it to research errors. One of the numbers is missing off of the year. All of the letters is also missing on the obverse side. There's no photo of the man on the reverse side. There's just an outline of where the man was suppose to be placed at on the penny. I weighed it and it weighed 2.0g. Could this be a plating/planchet/metal error? Strange & Unique Penny here. I would love to hear you all's thoughts and opinions on this.

    We use the term “dryer coin” to describe the damage done to your coin. I happens when a coin, such as a modern cent, which is made of copper plated zinc (both soft metals) is left in a machine, such as a dryer, for a few cycles, before it is noticed and removed. I fished one out of the washer a few days ago that had very similar damage and appearance.

    I know now you are new here, and have a lot to learn. When evaluating coins for possible errors, the first question to ask is “How could this happen during the process of manufacturing a coin?”

    Time for more coffee.

    PMD, or acid. Not the correct weight.

    "199" is a zinc cent. Wouldn't take much to damage it.
    I'd bury it and in about 500 years if/when someone digs it up it will be like us finding a Roman coin.

    Even if you don't have a valuable penny there, those are NICE photos!!! Very often photos on this site are "potato quality" as they say. This makes it hard for people to tell what they are looking at or determine helpful clues. I'm assuming your photos were taken with a digital scope, which is exactly what you want to get the most helpful feedback here. Good work!
