Improper Alloy Mix Errors!
1983, 1985-D & 1998
"Brass Plated"
Lincoln Cent Strikes!

All of our certified coins were graded and certified by JT Stanton!

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

    We were first to offer the 1985-D "Brass-Plated Cents" after having them confirmed by the U.S. Mint Assay Department as being inadvertently struck on "yellowish" brass-plated planchets (rather than on the normal "red" copper-plated blanks).  See the Mint Letter here:  Mint Letter.  Now, well over over a decade later, we offer brass-plated strikes not only on the 1985-D but also on the 1983, & 1998 dated cents!   Like the 1985-D strikes, these newer discoveries exhibit outstanding, full-blazing, yellowish-brass surfaces. We offer them assembled in sets with a normal "red" specimen for comparison (both coins are neatly set side by side in a custom labeled flip).  Even the certified pieces will come with a regular "red" example for comparison.  The supply is very limited so order early and add one to your collection today!
