The 1972 Doubled Die is a great coin! It's one of the "kings" as far as visibility, but hard to find. The error was made when the hub used to create the obverse die shifted slightly after making the initial impression, creating distinctly visible doubling on the date and lettering. Today, collectors snap this scarce error up as soon as it's available. With changes coming to America's Lincoln cents in 2009, more people than ever are collecting this desirable series. To commemorate the 200th anniversary of Lincoln's birth, four new reverse designs will appear on the cent. After 2009, the design will feature "an image emblematic of President Lincoln's preservation of the United States of America as a single and united country", which could mean the end of this beloved design. So now's the time to get your scarce 1972 Doubled Die Error.

According to The Cherrypicker's Guide, only about 16,001 to 32,000 of these scarce Lincoln cents exist! And with the coins offered here, you'll own a piece that has nice red original color and luster. Only a handful are available, so don't wait to place this sensational piece in your collection!
