Just bought a 1922-D cent with a straight clip on the Bay, and as always I looked at the seller's other items and spotted this little thing with the S way to the right of the normal position. Do not recall seeing it before, or anything that far out of position on a pre-1950 Lincoln cent. Anybody else ever seen it?

    Not to be a bigger pain that usual, but is there a picture of the reverse available?

    I figured that for $7.50 it was worth it.

    I have not seen one either- thanks for sharing the reverse. I thought the pattern of wear might be helpful

    Not a Lincoln expert... is there any value to this "error"?

    Every denomination minted in San Francisco has some sort of problem.

    Look out 1926-D. You have competition.

    The mint marks were applied to the dies in Philadelphia, so it was probably the same guy.

    I mean, you have to show the clipped '22-D too, why mention it otherwise? ;)

    Incomplete planchets wanted, especially Lincoln Cents & type coins.

    Why Sean! Do you have a date and mint collection of straight clips also?

    Will post a better picture after I get the coin.
