  1. But how does that explain the second rim? That is a raised line, not an indentation.
  2. Also worth noting that the "United" and memorial on lincoln's body are intended rather than raised, so my thoughts are that maybe another penny was sitting below it when it was struck the second time.
  3. Hello all! I'm new to the site, but not new to numismatics. I recently joined the ANA's YN program, and was able to redeem a free membership with the NGC. A friend recently found this coin in circulation, and has some questions that I cannot answer, and thought I would ask all of you. This 1999 penny appears to be double-stuck, and also looks like it was flipped over for one of the strikes. Its difficult to see in the picture, but you can see some of lincoln on the reverse, and can clearly see it say "UNITED" right below lincoln on the obverse. In the 5th picture I have included, you can
  4. Haha! You stole my line! Yeah, I don't think it has any extra value, but is definitely a keeper! Nice find!
  5. That is an amazingly beautiful Kennedy! I am super jealous. As an avid collector of silver, and with a strong passion for Kennedy halfs, I greatly appreciate this! Cheers, NM
  6. Don't worry about the oxidation. As long as they are stapled in 2x2's, there is no need for silicone. But I applaud your initiative to stay on the conscious side. This will serve you well if you decide to continue in this amazing hobby. When I first started collecting as a 9 year old 7 years ago, I beat the out of my coins, and did almost all the wrong things. I am glad to see that you are not making any of those mistakes. Also, if you have any numismatic questions but don't want to put up a forum, feel free to message me directly and I would love to help you out.
  7. I am afraid that I don't see any doubling effects whatsoever. Good luck hunting one down! Cheers, NumisMaster
  8. Those are some nice BU cents you have there! If you like them, and want to submit them to NGC or PCGS of grading, go for it! However I would like to advise you against that particular way of preservation. These coins have a value much lower that the submission fee. I have been "specializing" in collecting cents for the past few years, and I recommend storing them in 2x2 cardboard flips for now. Who knows if you pass them down tor your prosperity what value they might hold in the future! Cheers!
  9. Hey Mike, I love music and coins for the very same reason. Im brand new to the site, but have investigated errors for about 5 years now. I'm afraid I would have to agree with Cutler on this one. There is no way to tell for sure, but I can recall seeing an error in a numismatic textbook that I seem to recall sharing similar properties. My first reaction would be a collar-break, but it doesn't quite fit the criteria. You've got a very fascinating coin there! Good luck identifying it.
