Lot Description
1968-S Cent 1C--Obverse Struck Through Capped Die--MS63 Red NGC. This error is more widely recognized by the name "counterbrockage." The obverse details are mushy and flattened, the reverse sharp and fully defined. Essentially, a capped die error with a brockage reverse created a new "obverse die" and, when struck against the next blank planchet, left the weak and distorted obverse image with a strong reverse that came from the physical reverse die in the press. Fully brilliant orange mint color.
