Description & Analysis

The 1972 Double-die obverse Lincoln cent is very popular among collectors. The coins have quite a large spread on the doubling, which is quite evident throughout the mottoes and date on the obverse. While not quite as dramatic as the 1955 DDO, this coin still commands a healthy premium.
