1980 Lincoln Cent with Obverse Die Break
Grade:Very Choice Uncirculated NGC (SKU: 8454N.64)
This 1980 Lincoln cent is a great opportunity for Error coin collectors! It displays a die break on the obverse – created when a die used in striking coins loses a piece near the rim. When a die with a break is used to strike a coin, the blank’s metal flows into the open area, creating a raised blob of metal. On these coins, it’s clearly visible on the obverse near Lincoln’s shoulder!
Errors like this are usually caught during the mint’s strict screening process and destroyed before they ever see the light of day! Somehow, these shining Uncirculated examples made it into the hands of collectors, and now you can add one to your collection. These coins have been examined by our experts and certified by NGC. Availability is strictly limited, so order quickly to secure yours!
