Lot Description
A mated pair of 1997 Lincoln Cents, 1C error Coin #1, MS63 Red PCGS and Coin #2, MS64 Red PCGS. This pair began its life when Coin #2 was struck about 20% off center at 2 o'clock. The Cent then failed to eject from the dies, however, a newly fed planchet (to be Coin #1) entered the chamber. Coin #1 was then broadstruck, with approximately 90% of the obverse die obstructed by Coin #2, which was struck a second time, approximately 30% off center toward 4 o'clock. Coin #2 rotated approximately 150 degrees counterclockwise between the two strikes.
