It is a unique example, and its existence is truly mysterious. The coin was discovered by a California collector in The collector submitted the cent to Secret Service Forensic Division, and in their opinion the coin was genuine.
The coin was then examined by numismatists representing the major coin grading companies who were of the opinion the coin should receive a "No Decision" grade because its authenticity could not be guaranteed. The coin was sent to the Secret Service for a second time, and once again their opinion was that the cent was genuine.
A power optical scanning electron micrograph showed that the coin was not a composition of two coins, an altered date, or a tooled coin. Inthe coin was sent to PCGS. PCGS was of the opinion that the cent was produced by fabricated dies made using spark erosion.
Spark erosion is a very complicated form of creating counterfeit dies from existing coins. PCGS would not certify the coin. Several experts have since examined the coin with various opinions regarding its authenticity. Inthe current owners of the cent threatened anyone who made disparaging comments about the coins authenticity with legal action. The coin was intended for sale on Sept. The coin was pulled after convicted forger and murderer Mark Hofmann claims responsibility for forging of the D mule.
Hofmann claimed to have made the coin using an electroplating process. The coin was re-examined by Secret Service who found no merit to the forger's claims. Many experts including, Charles Daughtrey and John W.
Franklin Half Varieties and Errors
Bordner, believe that this variety is in fact an OMM. Parts of what look to be an S mintmark can be seen Northeast of the primary mintmark. Later die states show a clearer S mintmark. The variety also displays a repunched D mintmark. A recent re-evaluation of this variety using high magnification photos and computer generated overlays of an EDS specimen revealed that at best this variety was the upper loop of an inverted S punch. While it is possible, it does not appear to be probable. I think to posit a partial inverted S punch as the best explanation of the anomaly stretches the bounds of credulity.
The upper line is easily seen as the intersection of two die scratches.Search CCF Members. Active Users. There are currentlyusers on this website. Welcome Guest! Need help? Got a question?

During the most recent moon this was in a handful of stuff. No idea when I picked it. From viewing these pics the attributor for Copper coins felt it was not on his site or on Variety Vista though Wexler does not show all his listings.
The rpm as well as the doubled eye are not too bad. Report this Post to the Staff. Nice find and nice condition too.
I agree very nice condition. Perhaps you are not actually tossing them into a box? Actually I pretty much do! Ok very good. I'm glad to see your judicious use of flips and 2x2s. I've got a similar bin where I chuck my culls and bronze disease victims. I guess we all probably have something similar. Sorry to sidetrack your thread--super coin!
Errers and Varietys. Nice find, congrats! At least you can dig through your box on a blue moon. My strange box only gets looked at during the passing of Haley's comet.
But they do make great gifts for grandkids to keep them interested. And keep me from losing my eyesight. Not only a DDO for the eye, check out the forehead and bridge of nose.
Possibly even lower on right bust! Wow - very nice find and very nice condition. Nice find stonemanAll of the other cross-referenced attributers recognize it as a D over a Horizontal D. You be the judge. Crawford, and John A. You need to judge and decide for yourself. This image from Billy G. Crawford shows the key highpoints of what has been thought to be an underlying S mint mark. The marking at the lower left arrow is now believed to be part of an underlying D to the south.
The top left arrow and the raised area inside the D are believed to be parts of an underlying horizontal D mint mark. The lower center and lower right arrows are consistent with either the horizontal D or the D to the south as will be seen in the following overlays from Billy G. This overlay from Billy G. Crawford shows a horizontal D overlay.
Note how the highpoints of the upper left arrow and the two lower right arrows are a perfect match for what is seen on the supposed S. The lower left arrow also appears to match, but the shape is not right for what is seen at the point without the overlay. The element at the lower left arrow is believed to be part of an additional D punched to the south. Note that the bottom left and bottom right arrows do not coincide with the high points of the S. Moving the S to coincide with the lower left and lower right arrows moves the S out of alignment with the upper left and lower center arrows.
This image courtesy of Billy G. Crawford shows keys points of the underlying mint mark that some believe to be an S mint mark.
Later die state coins will only show the secondary D to the north. The secondary D is slightly tilted and is punched into the lower 5 in the date.1952 D Lincoln Penny: 746,130,000 Minted (95% Copper)
The secondary D is touching the lower 5. Not all die variety specialists agree that the other extra images are from a mint mark punch. The most interesting of these is an extra punch that is visible in the vest southwest of the date.Suddenly and thankfully I find myself cherrypicking and attributing a lot of coins for the first time in more years that I can remember!
Of course I plan to submit the majority of what I believe to be new finds to James Wiles for listing. How wonderful it is to be reborn! The benefits of using this FREE listing are immeasurable.
However, when asking myself what would make it better, I thought it would be nice if all of those pictured in Errorscope were indexed here so we could look them up to better attribute our finds.
And, I knew right away I had to share it with you all. It has been awhile since I have been able to contribute much to the club and I thank God to have the ability now.
While creating this index I came across several significant articles that are also instrumental in attributing your varieties. I mostly highly recommend you familiarize yourself with the following as well:. Reverse Design Varieties are now listed numerically. Just convert the letters to numbers. I have not incorporated these RPMs into the index.
I hope you find this small project of some benefit. It feels good to be able to present it to you! Happy picking! Issue of ES by Vol. Page Number s S. Page Number s VDB. Variety Number.

These rankings are compiled via statistical analysis and projected earnings as well as a dollop of popular demand and New York bias.
The predictions result from background conversations with team officials, agents and other people in the loop, as well as an attempt to think along with clubs and players.
The belle of the free-agent ball: durable, personable and entering his age-28 season. The Red Sox will sign either him or Hosmer. How much will his terrible World Series hurt his value. Or to flip the question, how much would a good World Series have helped his value.
Three straight years of stellar regular-season and extensive postseason innings bolster his resume. Of this free-agent class, the leader in WAR (using both Baseball-Reference. Man, what a run the Royals had, huh. Three of the top seven free agents are theirs.
He and the Indians have such a good thing going. To be clear: Whoever signs him controls him for at least six years. Zack Cozart, SS: What to make of a guy who put up his best year, by far, in his age-31 season. He came back strong in his first full year after Tommy John surgery. He too rebounded nicely after missing 2016 due to TJ surgery.
He has come a long way since the Yankees traded him to the Twins for Miguel Sulbaran in 2014. The last time he explored the market, George W. Bush was the U. He opted out of his Baltimore deal after a great year with the Orioles.
Yet another returnee from TJ surgery and another opt-out guy he enjoyed a Rockies renaissance before tiring. His health now has to be a concern after two straight years with heavy disabled-list time.
