1969s Lincoln cent info needed

8 posts in this topic

What info do you need? Please be more specific.

All I can tell you from that picture is that there where over 544 million minted in San Francisco. Made of 95% copper and 5% tin/zinc with a weight of 3.11g.

Picture is too out of focus to see if there is anything else going on.

Not mentioning this to be a *spoon*, just want to suggest a review of the sum of these percentages.

Maybe it is an oversized cent, and that is why it works out to 105%.

As for the coin, I see what looks like mechanical doubling on LIBERTY and the motto. Not a doubled die, if that is what you are wondering.
