    This sticks out to me....When I was 11 or 12 my Great grandfather gave me a coin collection. I dug out the baking soda polished them up "Real Nice", and glued them to a piece of cardboard to take them to show and tell at school. To this day that shiny 1867 indian with full detail and glue all over the back turns my stomach!!! Along with all the others that have glue on them.. But the 1867 would be worth the most if it wouldn't have been ground away with backing soda and glued.

    All pics are of a Lincoln Memorial cent. These were first minted in 1959. Sorry to say, I do not see how you could see an 1820 date on a Lincoln Memorial cent.

    Guys, The one you think is glue is actually the Lincoln Memorial from the other side of the coin being double stamped over Lincoln's head. Both coins are mint errors in my opinion.

    This coin was posted on a coin collecting site and one of the country's top error experts, who also authenticates errors for pcgs, has said it is just glue. The only other alternative would be to send it to one of the big three grading, authenticating services. These are ANACS, NGC and PCGS. I think PCGS you have to be a member or have a member dealer submit it. It will cost money, but it is pretty much the only way to go after one of the most esteemed experts has already given his opinion. No harassment, but if you are convinced it is something worthwhile, you are just going to have to send it to one of the big three graders.

    looks to me as two coins where glued together, then separated and the imprint remained on the glue or acrylic.

    I would say throw it under a black light, if that stuff glows then it surely is not a mark error.

    Yup looks like two pennies were glued together and one was removed. Its a shame because now its lost half its value lol. One could spend some cash to get it examined or just have our collective experience of examining millions of coins help them. I think you should send it in to be graded. Joking.

    No, you're not missing anything. But you may be accused of harassment now.

    Looks more to me like it went through a penny press machine that wasn’t quite working to there is only a partial imprint. Maybe there was goo that stuck on the penny.

    if you look closely you can clearly see its a clear glue on the surface of the coin......Worth exactly one penny.

    does not want to send off to a legit grading company? Brand new member! sounds like he is trying to scam someone. This is not the best forum to try to do that. I have seen more than a few scams on this and other metal detecting forums. The common denominator is almost always a brand new member who just signed up.

    Rarely will you see any member who has been on here for a year or more and is active in posting and replying trying to scam any other members. First we would not try to scam people and we also know there are some very experienced member who can spot a scam a mile away.

    If you look, the lettering from the second impression is reversed, this means it was not struck from the die. If it was struck from the die it would be normal. The impression from another coin makes a reverse impression as in this case. The second coin made an impression in the glue.

    On one of your earlier threads(about this coin), I told you that I came to one of the coin websites with a similar coin when I first became interested in coins. But I didn't have near as good of a picture. The picture you have (above) is better than what I could see with my coin in-hand. Look at Lincoln's shoulder. You can very clearly see that there is some kind of substance ABOVE one of the high points of the coin (his shoulder). If you simply ran your fingernail across it, it would probably start to peel off.

    I believe you're being honest and not trying to rip anyone off. Otherwise, you wouldn't have posted the picture above. I hope you're not just trolling. Try one of the many tests that have been suggested to you. Soak the coin. Run your fingernail across the coin. There's no shame in being wrong....it's normal for people who are new to coins. Trust me, I've been there.
