Ghost date on Lincoln penny.


It may be 199? Just curious what your thoughts are about this.

    Neat grease filled die. Looks like 1995 to me.

    Looks like a legitimate strike-through error. Has some value due to the novelty of affecting the date so significantly and not affecting much else. I would guess a value in the low double digits, maybe $10-30.

    @JBK I thought so too. Thanks

    @jonathanb thank you.

    @ERingus .... Nice pictures and an interesting find since the date is almost invisible due to likely a grease filled die. That would be a keeper in my 'special' folder if it were mine. Cheers, RickO

    @ERingus .... Your 1995 is just an environmentally damaged cent. The 1918 has seen a lot of commerce... as well it should have for 104 years in pockets, purses, countertops, hands and many other active environments. Cheers, RickO
