1984 1 Cent Lincoln Double Die PCGS MS66 Red - 100 Greatest
Check out Abe’s Double Ear and Beard in This Top 100 U.S. Modern Coin
Noted numismatist Jeff Garrett defines "modern coins" as those struck from 1964 onward. It's not an arbitrary date, for in 1964 U.S. circulating coinage changed forever with the mint striking our last 90% silver "pocket change." Since then, the mint has struck billions of coins. Mr. Garrett has identified 100 of these issues as among the greatest. We are pleased to bring you coins from Jeff's Top 100 list. Each coin is graded by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) and includes Jeff's hand-signed signature on the label. In addition, each order also includes a copy of Jeff's book. Here's your chance to start or add to your 100 greatest collection!
This 1984 Lincoln cent features a Double Die Obverse. It's pretty striking - just look at Honest Abe's ear - er, make that "ears," because there are two of 'em!

Only a small number of this scarce error have been independently graded at PCGS and NGC combined - out 8.1 billion struck at Philly in 1984.
