Potter also says that when Tremonti first called him, he was very skeptical. I advised him of this, but he shrugged it off as not being what he found. As I talked to him further, he seemed to be knowledgeable on the subject. It seemed that for once there was a possibility that one of the folks making the common claim of finding a S doubled die cent might have done so.

To my surprise, the coin turned out to be a beautiful, brilliant uncirculated example of this rare variety. The S doubled die cent has a notorious history. Around the time of its discovery ina pair of scammers had tried to cash in by making counterfeit doubled die cents.

According to Potter, it was just a bizarre coincidence that forgers happened to be making fake doubled die pennies at the same time that a genuine mint error emerged with the same date! Secret Service agents immediately seized it, believing that it was one of the counterfeit coins. The Secret Service later returned the coin to him as genuine. The U. It took the U.

When I got a few minutes I got my 15X out and took a peak, no evidence of cleaning no signs of copper anywhere including the rim. I was getting a little excited. When I got into the sunlight I pulled it out again and could see a hint of copper very slight copperish only visible in sunlight. I took a file to the rim and shaved a few flakes off. Same dullish gold color all the way through.

Anyone have any ideas?? Maybe it is worth a buck or two!! Attached Thumbnails. Charlie P. Somewhere in the world are hundreds of silver plated cents from just my high school's photography lab. We used to leave the cents in the developer over a weekend and they would be nicely silver plated by Monday. I'm sure coins have been brass plated, silver plated, gold plated, galvanized and parkerized by bored or mischievous folks since the time of alchemists who were trying to "make" gold.

America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens. I got a gold plated P mint. I am still quite up in the air, if the coin was plated with anything wouldnt the copper show up after I filed some stuff off the edge? I tried to get a picture but it didnt work out to well.

It looks to be cleaned and maybe a bit porous but I am not sure. Why would you clean a D cent?? It is the same color as far through as I filed, not much but enough that plating or anything would be exposed. Could some kind of chemical reaction turned this coin the golden color?? If it did, could it seep into several layers of the chemical?? I have no clue. I guess it is possible. Thanks for the help. At an old job, we plated several pennies with gold.E-mail Error message here!

My Galaxy was destroyed last night and lost all my good quality pictures. Now using a horrible phone momentarily. I am very new to coin collecting, started a couple months ago. Eager to learn and have found many interesting coins I would like to post eventually. Report this Post to the Staff. The FG initials are still there, I can see them plain as day.

This is not a broadstrike, this is a Misaligned Die. Second, I see evidence of a slightly mis-aligned die on the front of this coin. Not so much on it being a broad strike though. Can you please tell us the diameter of this coin?

Silver Cents, I may be blind then. I tuly dont see it. Spence how do I get the diameter? I figured I used the wrong term broadstrike. Only 2 answers I founf on google was that or offcenter. I need to look up mis-aligned die. Thanks you both for replying. It's all good, sometimes we miss spots on the coin. Just scan over it too quickly. You can get the diameter by taking a ruler, and simply measuring the length of the coin, the diameter.

Not sure how else to describe it. Off center is when both sides are simultaneously misaligned.

A misaligned die is when one side is. I'm seeing a misaligned die and pretty good evidence given the reverse photo posted that the FG is there--not bold and razor sharp, but present.Here is a question for everyone. I found this D Lincoln Memorial Reverse cent while roll searching. As you can see in the photos below, I hope, it is missing the FG initials of Frank Gasparro, the designer of the reverse. In the book Cherrypickers' Guide-fifth edition it is listed as a variety "Missing Designer's Initials".

It has a FSD number. The authors maintain that during die polishing the initials were completely polished away. Other people feel that the die was filled with grease or some form of dirt. If that is so, then it is not a Variety.

What do you think? I tried posting this as a blog but got no where. Maybe this way of posting will work better. I just went through my bag of 60's Cents and out of 20 or so 69 "D" i found one with no FG, I'm curious about this too as no real answer came up on a google search.

From what I've been able to find out so far is that its pretty common for them to try to extend the life of the dies by polishing them, When this is done some small details are lost. Like the bands on the reverse of a Rosey. I've never seen one in a early die state so I can't answer the question.

I've found several and didn't see a pattern of polish lines. I do know that the grading services don't agree on the characteristics. Longstrider Posts. NumistmaNerd 16 Posts.

Coins turn all sorts of colors, either from they're exposed to or what people do to them on purpose. Either way, it turns a potential collector coin into a coin with no collector value. Uncirculated coins can acquire natural coloring called toning, and if it's attractive rainbow toningit adds value.

But not to circulated coins. Some cents actually look gold color for the planchet may be more brass than copper. This happens when the tin or zinc added to the copper is more tin than zinc. So cents pop up from time to time a brass color. Some dates are more common than others from what I have read over the years. As for value I di not keep up with them for this type item. Also on the other hand it could be environmental damage such as bring in water or near a chemical.

Best bet here is to send a color scan to an error specialist such as Ken Potter kpotter aol. Somebody probably just exposed it to something that altered the color. For the gold color, it's likely heat. Trending News.
