Lot Description
1992 1C--Lincoln Cent--Double Denomination--Struck on 1992-P Roosevelt Dime--MS65 PCGS. The dime was struck first, then the 1992-P Roosevelt dime somehow made its way back into the planchets for the Lincoln cent presses, where it entered obverse-to-obverse but rotated about 100 degrees clockwise from the subsequent Lincoln portrait. The 1992 date from the dime is faint but discernible, while the dime's P mintmark is clear. The 1992 date and the Lincoln details from the later cent strike are, of course, much bolder, with a similar reverse appearance. This Gem piece appears nearly mark-free, with the expected silver-gray coloration. These double-denomination errors are quite popular in the marketplace.
