Numbering Systems Used

"VCR#" = Numbers assigned by Ken Potter within the Variety Coin Register (mostly for "better" varieties). " FS#" = numbers assigned by Bill Fivaz and J.T. Stanton as found in The Cherrypickers' Guide to Rare Die Varieties and/or Cherrypickers' News. "Breen#" = numbers assigned by Walter Breen as found in his "Encyclopedia". Unprefixed "RPM#" = numbers assigned by CONECA as found in The RPM Book 2nd Edition for Lincoln cents and in Wexler/Miller's 1st Edition for the balance of denominations (these too, for the most part, are "official" CONECA numbers). "CONECA#" = numbers assigned by CONECA including Wexler's "old numbers" as found in his earlier books (these works were sold to CONECA or others after Wexler left the hobby for about a decade) and sold to CONECA. "Wexler-" (or a "W" preceding an acronym such as WRPM) = Wexler's "new numbers" as assigned after his return to the hobby a number of years ago.  Some of Wexler's "earlier new numbers" can be found with prefixes such as LCRPM (Lincoln Cent RPM) but the "LC" has been dropped from the system with the sequence numbers remaining the same and now prefixed with a "W"). Top 100 Lincoln Cent RPMs are according to those originally listed in the Wexler/Allen Book, The Complete Price Guide and Cross-Reference to Lincoln Cents Mintmark Varieties, unless otherwise noted. In my opinion the Wexler/Allen Top 100 list is the best of the several "Top 100" lists devised.  Please note that since the above was written (many years ago) and that other numbering systems have evolved.  For the most part many of the entries on this list were entered years ago when were purchased the holdings of old-time dealers.  While we respect the work of others we simply do not have the time to add all the new listing numbers that have evolved since this list was first created in the 1980s.  As such due to time restraints more often than not we will not include the newer Wexler, Crawford, CopperCoins, etc., numbers.  These newer numbers will be utilized when we are adding in new varieties and the numbers are readily available to us.
Abbreviations Used
CPG = Cherrypickers' Guide to Rare Die Varieties, PQ = Premium Quality, i.e., a coin that may grade higher than assigned, DDO = Doubled Die Obverse, DDR = Doubled Die Reverse, RPM = Repunched Mint Mark, OMM = Over Mint Mark, DMM = Dual Mint Mark, scr = scratch, lt scr = light scratch.
Grading Services and their Holders
Generally speaking we do not distinguish between old or new style holders (or those that fall in between).  We do realize that grading standards have changed over the years and that coins found in old holders are often under-graded by today's standards (in other words, they would often grade higher today than they did years ago and as such are often viewed to be of better value). What we try to do is give you our opinion on the coin in the holder rather than figure out which era a holder is from.  If we feel a coin that was graded as an MS64 twenty-years ago is a solid MS65 by today's standards, we will state so and often price the coin accordingly as if it were raw. If we feel an upgrade is argumentative, we will say nothing and you'll just get a high end coin that might grade higher if you resubmit it to the same or different grading service.  Conversely, coins that have been graded too high (in our opinion) based on the standards of a given grading service, will be noted as such by our opinion of the grade that will follow the grade on the holder in our written description.  As such, in some rare instances, you might actually see a coin graded by one service as an MS64 Red, priced higher than another coin graded MS65 Red by the same or a different grading service.  This is because we grade the coins -- not the holders.  We further note that grading services have different standards that have evolved over the years.  If you are a serious collector, you should get to know which services grade the toughest and which are the most lenient.  One can not expect to get a coin  graded by the most lenient grading service that is as nice as one graded by the toughest grading service.  Prices will often reflect this difference.  If you have any questions about grading, grading holders or grading services -- please call or email us.

Lincoln Cent Varieties

1938-D/D South 1c RPM#6   Nice RPM.  MS63 RB $45.00,  MS63 RD $65.00, MS65 RD $75.00

1938-S/S & 8/8 Strong North 1c RPM#1-a   FS-501 ( FS#1c-016.51), VCR#1/RPM#1, CONECA: RPM-001, WRPM-001, CRPM-001.  Very Sharp earlier die state!  This one is actually an earlier die state than the one shown in CONECA's newly released, The Lincoln Cent RPM Book Vol. 1: 1909-1958 by James Wiles as stage a.  However, it is accurately described and shown in The Comprehensive Guide To Lincoln Cent Repunched Mintmark Varieties Volume 1 Wheat Cents 1909 to 1939 by Wexler, Allen and Bordner as Stage A.  The master die doubling of the 8/8 is easily seen on this stage.

1959 1c Doubled Die Obverse DDO-001, FS#1c-022.2

1959 1c Doubled Die Obverse DDO-001, FS-101 (FS#1c-022.2), VCR#1/DDO#1 Doubling shows very well to strong on the date; best on the 59. This is an earlier die state with some doubling also showing on LIBERTY.  Much stronger than the later stage shown in the Cherrypickers' Guide!   A super nice variety! MS64RD $65.00,  ICG-64RD $75.00, MS65RD $95.00


1959-D/D/D 1c RPM#1, VCR#1/RPM#1, FS#1c-022.5 Strongest tripled "D"

1959-D/D/D 1c RPM#3, Wexler-RPM-012 D/D/D North & Overlapping; average MS63/64 as they come out of the tube $5.50

1959-D/D/D RPM#5-b D/D/D Southwest & Serifs

1959-D/D/D RPM#5-b D/D/D Southwest & Serifs. Oft thought to be a D/Hz/D. Ch BU/+ as they come from the roll...$7.50, hand picked MS64/+ $14.95

1959-D/D 1c RPM#8d, Wexler-RPM-008 D/D North.   MS60/Spots $3.25, MS62 $4.00

1959-D/D/D/D 1c RPM#9 D/D/D/D South & South & South. Descriptions in Wiles' book not adequate to determine stage but these match the photo in the book. As they come from the roll - average MS63 $7.50

1960 1c LD Doubled Die Reverse DDR-001 (1-R-II-C). This one is listed on page 109-110 of John Wexler's, The Lincoln Cent Doubled Die.  It shows a close spread on ONE CENT, upper UNITED, the I of AMERICA and very slightly on the designer's initials.  MS63 RD $5.00, MS64 RD $7.50

1960 1c LD Doubled Die Reverse. This one was sold to us a 2-R-VI (which it very well may be).  Is a variety that was later relisted as 2-R-II-VI by Del Romines. It shows all the doubling described by John Wexler in his book, The Lincoln Cent Doubled Die, on ONE CENT, the designer's initials (FG)  UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and EPU except that this is an early enough stage to show most of it as doubling to tripling instead of just thickening.  The tripling (or perhaps even quadrupling) on the R and last A of AMERICA, plus doubling at the tops of all of USA and bottoms of ONE CENT undoubtedly did look just like thickening on the later stages.  All I can say is that it is a really nice minor!  MS64 Red $14.95, MS65 Red $18.95, MS66 Red (a real blazer for the connoisseur) $24.95

1960-D/D 1c Small Date over Large Date + RPM D/D Wide North!

1960-D/D 1c Small Date over Large Date + RPM D/D Wide North!  This is the same variety as the one listed in the 'Red Book' as a Large over Small Date (they just got it backwards as it is a Sm/Lg not Lg/Sm). A Top 100 RPM!   MS63 RD may have a few specks or spots but not particularly distracting to the naked eye $175.00, MS64 RD (same as MS63 but fewer specks, etc.) $195.00, ANACS-64 RD (has some spots and I’d grade MS63) $225.00, ANACS-65 RD (has a few specks would probably grade PCGS-64) $315.00, ANACS-66 RD (I'd grade MS65/+ RD) $450.00

1960-D Large Date 1c Tripled Die Obverse. CONECA-3-0-III. This one is described in Del Romines', One Cent Doubled Die Update as follows: "1960-D 3-0-III (3) or multiple. Medium spread to East on LIBERTY. 9 has three tails, one east, one West and one center with what appears to be the remnants of a fourth nine on the upper left of the loop. 0 shows light double to the North with one faint division line visible on the upper left of 0. Light double on forehead. Heavy sandpaper marks are evident on LIBERTY and date; only what appears to be a MDS have been seen. If the sandpaper was an attempt to obliterate the double on the die, the MDS may well be VEDS. Apparently EXTREMELY RARE, as it could not have been missed by people searching for 1-0-III. Prices market tested. Additional coin received for examination while typing this coin is of LDS, and has developed a small Rim Cud to left and just above L of LIBERTY. Both states do have a lightly skirted R in LIBERTY." Romines' listed the variety with an estimated value of $150 in BU for the Mid Die State (MDS).  MDS MS63/+ $75.00, MDS MS64 RD $95.00

1964 1c Doubled Die Reverse#1

1964 1c Doubled Die Reverse VCR#1/DDR#1, FS#1c-026. Strong Doubling on UNITED STATES OF AMERICA & EPU.  This is the nicer mid-die-state (an early mid at that!); the doubling shows much sharper than on the mushy late-die-state specimens typically encountered.  Most of these will have some planchet stains typical to the variety. MS61R&B a large print dominates the obverse and 50% of the reverse $35.00, MS62 Rev Spots $45.00, MS63 RD a small lamination on obverse; some specks.

1968-S 1c Doubled Die Obverse 1-0-II Early Die State Shows well on IGWT MS60/62 Spotty $12.00

No Date (1968-S) US Die!  This is a genuine 1968-S coinage die from the San Francisco Mint! Naturally, it has been defaced but the entire shank including the serial number, (prefixed by an "S" for San Francisco), is undisturbed making it one of the most unusual items you can own. Instead of being defaced by grinding, (the current method used by the Mints ), the devices were torched (or "puddled" - as they call it), leaving a much more aesthetically pleasing effect. This is NOT one of the commonly encountered Denver Mint dies that escaped the Mint a few years ago by the thousands and were defaced by the ugly grinding method. This is an historic United States San Francisco Mint coinage die that was used to strike Lincoln cents in the Mint nearly 40 years ago! These are getting harder and harder to find! Our supply of these dies is very limited! Once they are gone it is doubtful we will ever be able to offer them again! In the 34 years we've been in the coin business, we've learned that once items like this are gone -- they're gone! The photo shown is of a couple we have in stock. The actual die delivered may have a different serial number than either of those shown here. In all other respects it will be virtually identical. $99.99

1969D/D 1c RPM#10 D/D North Scarce!! MS63RD $7.50, MS64RD $12.50, MS65 $18.50

1969-S/S 1c RPM#1 S/S West MS63RD w/specks $7.50, MS63RD $8.50, MS64RD $12.50

1969-S/S 1c RPM#2 S/S West. Nice and very scarce to rare! MS63RD $17.50, MS64 $19.95, MS65RD $25.00

1969-S/S 1c RPM#3-c S/S West. Listed by Wiles as a URS-2 (2 known) but we have several. This is the stage with a multitude of fine die-lines on the obv/rev. MS63RD $17.50, MS64RD $22.50


1970-S/S 1c RPM#1 S/S North

1970-S/S 1c RPM#1 S/S North. A Top 100 RPM! Very strong variety in sharp earlier die state! MS62 R&B w/print $14.95, MS63 Red $22.00, MS64 Red $27.00

1970-S 1c LC-70D-7 Base Of Bust Cud Typical BOB Cud listed in the Thurman/Margolis book.  PCI Graded MS66 Red (I grade it MS64/+ RD.  $24.95

1970-S 1c Doubled Die Obverse Low 70 over Very Low 70! This one is listed by John Wexler as WDDO-011 is very similar to FS#1c-030.1 except underlying 0 is more centered and also shows in the center of the upper loop of the primary 0. We like this one better!! - MS64RD $25.00, MS65 $35.00

1971 1c Doubled Die Obverse #1.  VCR#1/DDO#1, CONECA DDO-001, FS-101 (FS#1c-031).  This is the big one!  A PCGS MS65 Red sold in a 2005 Heritage Auction for over $10,000.00!  Another one in PCGS MS64 Red sold on July 8, 2009 by Heritage for $920.  PCGS Price Guide lists an MS64 Red at $1400.00.  This one is “raw” and a solid MS64 Red and is of a sharp earlier die state with crisp clear doubling.  While it has a few more dings than the aforementioned MS64 sold by Heritage, its surfaces are much cleaner in that it does not have the preponderance of planchet stains that the Heritage coin had.  It is also not one of the mushy later die state coins!    Temp Sold Out -- Will have a couple in a few weeks.

Note On 1972 Doubled Die Prices:  J.T. Stanton, co-author with Bill Fivaz, of the Cherrypickers' Guide To Rare Die Varieties, has indicated that the prices for 1972 Doubled Dies#2 through #9 (and a few other varieties) as published in the Fourth Edition - Volume 1 are largely in error.   He explained that the editor of CPG used a template with nonsensical prices plugged in to create pages in which he later made changes dictated by the specifics of each variety.  In this case the "price changes" never actually occurred as the editor moved on to another job without actually finishing the editing of the CPG.   Some of the loose-ends that were not noticed by the authors never got fixed resulting in a few pricing errors scattered throughout the book.  We hope this explains why CPG lists most of the 1972 Doubled Dies at prices far lower that what we will buy and sell at.  

1972/72 DOUBLED-DIE 1c Variety-3 (DDO#3) FS-103. Nice on Liberty and IGWT. See the Cherrypickers' Guide for pictures. MS62RB $12.95, MS62 RD $18.95  MS63RD...$24.95, MS64RD $34.95

1972/72 DOUBLED-DIE 1c Variety#9 (CONECA: DDO-009 and 9-0-V) FS#1c-033.59 Shows nice on the 2. See the Cherrypickers' Guide for pictures. Somewhat scarcer than most the other years MS63RD $14.95, MS64RD $24.95,  MS65RD $35.00

1972/72 DOUBLED-DIE 1c Variety#11.  This is a brand new variety that is similar to DDO-009 with the doubling over the tail of the 2 of date.  It is listed by us as VCR#11/DDO#11 by CONECA as DDO-010 and by Billy Crawford as CDDO-013.  There is also doubling inside the upper loop of the 2 and a trace of doubling under the horizontal bar of the 7.  Apparently rare!  MS63 Red $39.95,  MS64/+ Red $55.00

1972-D/D 1c RPM#3 D/D West. This one is rated very scarce to rare in BU! We have seven examples, all with a few specks but otherwise MS60 w/lots of light specks $5.95, MS64 RD $14.50

1983 "No F" 1c This one is completely missing the "F" of Frank Gasparro's designer's initials on the reverse of the coin due to heavy die abrasion. MS63w/specks...$9.50, MS63RD or better $14.50

1983 1c "Extra Letters In Motto;" shows portions of an "extra" N, G & O (from IN GOD), below and within IN GOD. This is the result of a counter clash; a piece of scrap steel was struck by a die and then counter sunk into this die. Neat variety now listed in A Quick Reference to the Top Lincoln Cent Varieties where it is listed as CLO-002. MS65 Red $125.00, ANACS65 $150.00

1983 1c Base of Bust Cud listed as LC-83-24 MS64RD $8.50, MS65RD Blazer! $14.50

1983 "Brass Plated Strikes" 1c 1983 cents struck on "brass plated planchets" were confirmed by the Mint officials and that information published in Coin World's, May 23, 1983 Collector's Clearinghouse written by Marilyn Van Allen). These are very similar to the 1985-D "brass plated strikes" offered below but these seem to be of a plating composition closer to the type of brass known as Tombac (being almost iridescent yellowish-green rather than the solid yellow of th1985-D issue). MS64 RD $25,  MS65 RD $35, MS66 RD $45.00

1984 1c Small Cud at rim next to 4 of date. Listed by Noe as LC-1984-23; this is probably LC-1984-33 MS64 $7.50, MS65RD $9.50

1984 Base of Bust Cud listed as LC-1984-22 MS64RD $8.50, MS65RD Blazer! $14.50

1985-D/D 1c RPM#1-b

1985-D/D 1c RPM#1-b Strong RPM listed in The RPM Book as a D/D Southeast. RARE in any grade! MS60/+ w/planchet stains $35.00, MS63/+ RD $55.00

1985-D/D 1c RPM#5 A nice RPM shifted to the west. Very scarce to rare! MS64RD...$25.00, MS65RD $45.00

1985-D/D 1c New RPM A nice RPM shifted to the west. Most have plating blisters but are solid Red! Very scarce to rare! MS64RD...$25.00, MS65RD $45.00 

1987-D/D 1c RPM#3, VCR#1/RPM#1, Wexler WRPM-003.  A super RPM to the North!.  This stage also shows die deterioration doubling around the Mintmark and date.  This is the STRONGEST RPM KNOWN for the date! Very Rare with a URS rating of URS-3 (3 or 4 known) quoted in The RPM Book - Lincoln Cents - 2nd Ed by Wiles!  Of course, there are more known now, but still, it is a rarity! MS64RD...$35.00, MS65RD Blazer!!! $55.00

1989 1c Doubled Die Obverse VCR#1/DDO#1.  This might be the same variety listed as 1-O-VI by Del Romines in his 1990 One Cent Doubled Die Update book produced while he acted as CONECA's doubled die attributer for Lincoln cents.  It shows extra thickness with clear divisions lines on the date, the R of TRUST and some of the upper hairlines just below IGWT. Not spectacular but a decent little doubled die for the specialist.  MS62/3 spots  $12.50

1992 1c Close AM.  One of only six or seven known!  Very Rare in any grade!  AU-53 to AU-55 $5,000.00 

1995 1c Doubled Die Obverse VCR#1/DDO#1 This is the big one shown in the "Red Book"! These are sharp Stage-1 examples with nice clean fields and well defined crisp doubling on LIBERTY and IN GOD.  These coins were produced before the obverse die was stoned or otherwise dressed-out with an abrasive to remove minor flaws.  It is the more desirable stage preferred by collectors.   Don't be fooled by dealers that offer this variety for lower prices but fail to mention the die-stage!  When this is the case, they are almost certainly delivering the later stage specimens with the less defined doubling and heavy die lines (die scratches) showing in the fields. These are pieces that an East Coast dealer who had thousands of the 1995 doubled dies back over a decade ago creamed from the group and sent in to PCI when they ran a special on grading 1995 doubled die cents.  They are truly "wonder coins" in grade and flash!  I took five pieces had had their grades reaffirmed by JT Stanton and re-holdered in his "Signature Series" slabs.  PCI-69 Red Super Nice Brilliant Blazer in a JT Stanton Signature Series Holder!  $295.00

1995 1c Doubled Die Obverse VCR#1/DDO#1 This is the big one listed in the "Red Book!" This is a Stage-2 examples with the die striations from stoning (as described above).  This one has an interesting die chip on the 9 of date as an added bonus to the doubled die!  It is what CONECA calls "Stage E". Nice! PCGS-66 RED Sold

1997 1c "Doubled Ear" Doubled Die Obverse.  CONECA-DD0-001, Wexler-DDO-001, FS#1c-043. This Doubled Die Obverse, often nicknamed the "Doubled Ear," displays strong doubling of the curl of hair above Lincoln’s ear and even stronger on the ear lobe; less obvious doubling shows on the lock of hair in front of upper ear and throughout other areas of the hair (doubling shows in a total of 15 areas). The cause is most likely due to a tilted die blank seating itself into proper position during the hubbing process -- a condition that has been confirmed as occurring by Mint workers with hands-on experience at both the Philadelphia and Denver Mints (though officials that sit in front offices with no hands-on experience -- deny it).  One Mint worker described the action of a tilted die seating itself properly during a hubbing as having a distinctive "clunking sound" -- a familiar ring to anybody who has spent considerable time operating  presses set up for stamping operations where the work-piece may be loaded off-location but forced into position by the upper die/tooling during a cycle (a sound this author has heard hundreds of times during his stint as a press operator).  No matter what you want to call it -- doubled ear or doubled die -- it's becoming more and more popular as existing supplies are disappearing! MS64 RED $375.00

1997 "Brass Plated Strike" 1c These just came in and exhibit a sharp contrast in color difference between the normal "rosy red" issue. They have a very nice golden-brass color and are sure to please even the fussiest collector! Only 40 pcs came in; less than 20 left! MS64 RD $34.95, MS65 RD $45.00

1997-D "Brass Plated Strike" 1c Like the above these exhibit a sharp contrast in color difference between the normal "rosy red" issue. They have a very nice golden-brass color and are sure to please!  MS64 RD $24.95, MS65 RD $35.00, JT Stanton Signature Series PCI Graded: PCI MS65 RD $65.00


Shown here is one of the Brass Plated Planchet Strikes (left) next to a normal Red strike.

1998 "Brass Plated Strike" 1c Like the above these exhibit a sharp contrast in color difference between the normal "rosy red" issue. They have a very nice golden-brass color and are sure to please! MS64 RD $24.95, MS65 RD $35.00, MS66 RD $45.00, JT Stanton Signature Series PCI Graded: PCI MS65 RD $55.00, PCI MS66 RD $65.00, PCI MS67 RD $75.00, PCI MS68 RD $95.00, PCI MS69 $150.00

1998 1c Type-1 (Regular Business Strike Style Reverse From Original Mint Rolls!  Description:  This is the regular business strike variety (Ty-1) the letters AM of AMERICA are close together and almost touching; the designer's initials, FG, (at the right side of the base of the Memorial Building) are spaced well away from the building.  These are for the person who is buying a ICG Certified Ty-2 (see below) and wants a certified Ty-1 for comparison.  ICG-66 RD $14.95

1998 1c Type-2 Wide AM (Proof Style ReverseAll From Original Mint Rolls!  Description:  On the regular business strike variety (Ty-1) the letters AM of AMERICA are close together and almost touching; the designer's initials, FG, (at the right side of the base of the Memorial Building) are spaced well away from the building. On the Ty-2 business strike with proof style reverse the letters AM of AMERICA are spaced significantly further apart than on the Ty-1; the designer's initials, FG, are close to the base of the Memorial Building.  The Ty-2 issue is very scarce on both 1998 and 2000 dated cents.  In John Wexler's front page Coin World story of January 22, 2001 he reported the discovery of a 2000 dated business strike Lincoln Cent struck with a proof style reverse die.  Shortly after his announcement the same variety was found on 1998 dated cents.  As noted by Wexler, since 1993, the reverse dies for the Lincoln Cent have bore noticeable differences between the dies used for general business strikes and those prepared for special proof coinage.  In fact, in our Coin World VIP tour of the Philadelphia Mint, (that Wexler and I attended in 1998), a Mint spokesman noted that the dies for proof cents were different from business strike dies, with special enhancements of the proof dies implemented for cosmetic reasons.  It was obvious that the proof style dies were never intended to be used for business strike coinage. We offer the 1998 examples as follows: MS63 RD - $25, MS64 - $35, MS65 RD - $49.99, PCGS MS66RD $150.00

1998 1c Type-2 Wide AM (Proof Style Reverse). These are pieces that were cherried from circulation and sent to ANACS.  In my humble opinion based on my old fashioned way of grading few if any of these pieces are truly uncirculated; many  were “commercially” graded as such by ANACS while under a different ownership (as is the current state of the art of grading throughout the entire industry today).  We offer these at a bargain price!   Nice coins and if graded uncirculated are in fact uncirculated by today’s standards but not nearly as nice as original BU specimens offered above or below.  ANACS AU (various AU grades - the best go first) $14.95 each.  ANACS MS61 to MS62 (the best go first) $19.95, uncertified AU/UNC $7.50

1998 1c Type-2 (Proof Style Reverse) w/"Phantom D" Mintmark!  From Original Mint State Rolls! Some of the 1998 Ty-2 Rev. pieces that came in also exhibit the so-called "Phantom D" Mint Mark; slight traces of the Denver Mint Mark that were left on the 1998 Lincoln cent master hub, modified for use as a Philadelphia hub.  The so-called "Phantom D" variety was created by the Mint by grinding the Denver Mint Mark off the master hub and then using it to produce a master die for Philadelphia cent die production.  Traces of the D remained on the master hub and were transferred to the master die and then to working hubs and further on to working dies.  In general, the "Phantom D" wore off the tooling in short order and thus only shows on coins produced from earlier stages of the Philadelphia cent tooling.  We make note of them here for those that are interested in acquiring one with the Type 2 reverse.   MS63 RD - $45, MS64 RD - $55.00

1998-S 1c Proof Close AM Ty-1 (Business Strike Style Reverse); discovery recently reported as the lead front page story in Coin World and Numismatic News.  It is the variety with the business strike style reverse with the "Close AM" of AMERICA where they are almost attached.  So far reports on this variety are very few and far between.  PCGS PF-69 DCAM. A flawless coin! $1750.00

1999 1c Wide AM Ty-2 (Proof Style Reverse) This is the RARE ONE!  Same variety type as described for the 1998 above (and 2000 below). MMNS graded MS-64 RB (in my opinion this is an AU) $175.00.  The following are from original brilliant uncirculated rolls: MS64/++ RD $295.00, MS65 RD $350.00, MS66 RD $550.00

1999-S 1c Proof Ty-1 FS-901 (Business Strike Style Reverse); reported as the lead front page story in Coin World and Numismatic News.  It is the variety with the business strike style reverse with the "Close AM" of AMERICA where they are almost attached.  The first one offered on eBay sold on April 11 in a little-known lower-tier  grading service holder as an MS70 for $761.00 while the second one offered sold on April 18 in a clad proof set ungraded for $911.00.  The ones offered here are "singles" that were removed from sets and sold to us as such.  Proof-63 $45.00, ANACS PF-64 DCAM $55.00, ANACS PF-66 DCAM $75.00, ANACS PF67 DCAM $95.00, ANACS PF 68 Ugly Toning DCAM $75.00

2000 1c Wide AM Type-2 (Proof Style ReverseFrom Original Mint State Rolls! On the regular business strike variety (Ty-1) the letters AM of AMERICA are close together and almost touching; the designer's initials, FG, (at the right side of the base of the Memorial Building) are spaced well away from the building. On this business strike with proof style reverse (Ty-2) the letters AM of AMERICA are spaced significantly further apart than on the the Ty-1; the designer's initials, FG, are close to the base of the Memorial Building.  The Ty-2 issue is very scarce on both 1998 and 2000 dated cents.  In John Wexler's front page Coin World story of January 22, 2001 he reported the discovery of a 2000 dated business strike Lincoln Cent struck with a proof style reverse die.  Shortly after his announcement the same variety was found on 1998 dated cents.  As noted by Wexler, since 1993, the reverse dies for the Lincoln Cent have bore noticeable differences between the dies used for general business strikes and those prepared for special proof coinage.  In fact, in our Coin World VIP tour of the Philadelphia Mint, (that Wexler and I attended in 1998), a Mint spokesman noted that the dies for proof cents were different from business strike dies, with special enhancements of the proof dies implemented for cosmetic reasons.  It was obvious that the proof style dies were never intended to be used for business strike coinage. So far, finds of the Ty-2 variety have proven to be very few and far between.  We offer the 2000 examples as follows:  MS63 RD - $19.99, MS64 RD - $25, MS65 RD - $35, MS66 RD - $45.00, ICG-64 - $29.00, ICG-65 - $39.95, ICG-66 $45.00, ICG-67 $55.00, ANACS-64 RD $35.00, ANACS-65 RD $45.00, NGC MS66RD $65.00

2000 1c Type-2 Wide AM (Proof Style Reverse). These are pieces that were cherried from circulation and would come back “commercially graded” AU to MS62 or so.  Nice coins but not nearly as nice as original BU specimens offered above.  Order as AU/UNC $7.50

"Save Our Pennies" Token - "Write Your Congressman/Cents Make Sense"; token struck on a BU Lincoln cent; really neat!  Made back around 1991. A faint ghost image of the Memorial Bldg can be seen on the uniface reverse! $12.50

2007-P John Adams Dollar Double Edge Lettering and Smooth Edge ErrorsClick here to see current prices.

2007-P John Adams Dollar "Large Font" and "Small Font" Edge Lettering. Set Of Four Coins.  We do not know the exact cause but the  so-called Large Font is distinctly different than the Small Font in that the Large Font has wide flat tops that are nearly as wide as the bases of the letters while the Small Font is characterized by a gradual taper that results in more pointed tops to the letters.  Per Set with tops of Large and Small Font letters facing reverse (Position A) and Large and Small facing obverse (Position B). Total of four coins: MS63 $14.95, MS64 $24.95, MS65 $39.00

2007-P John Adams Dollar.  Matte Finish Edge/Small Diameter Errors!  These errors obviously went through the Schuler edge letting machine with the edge lettering die set too tight.  The result is that the coins were force-spun butted up all the way to the shoulder of the edge letting die thus transferring a sort of matte effect from the shoulder of the edge lettering die to the edge of each coin.  The process also reduced the diameter of each coin significantly in addition to creating extremely strong edge lettering and thicker rims (you can only fit 23 of these into a plastic tube intended to hold 25). We purchased just under 50 of these and found their average diameter at around 26.33 while the diameter of  the normal coins is 26.50.  We offer them as follows:  MS63 $39.95, MS64 $49.95, MS65 $75.00

1968 PL $1 "Extra Waterlines Dollar" VCR#3/DDR#1 Canada's most popular doubled die! This is the original "Extra Waterlines Dollar" nicknamed and promoted as such by the discoverer. It exhibits the strongest doubling of the waterlines of any of the known varieties for this date. Now listed in the Charlton Standard Catalogue of Canadian Coins and in Canadian Coin News Trends! Exhibits strong doubling on the waterlines and horizon lines (collectively referred to as "waterlines") in front of the canoe, the date, feather in Indian's hair, and portions of CANADA and ONE DOLLAR.
