1984 red no mint penny

Since most of us like to read our words right side up, and prefer not to have to turn our laptops, monitors, CRTs, etc, on their sides, it sure would be helpful if the pictures were oriented correctly.

Now, as for the coin, I don't see hub doubling. I see what appears to be some die deterioration on the obverse, and some letters in STATES that are not fully struck.

Do you think with condition and year it would be worth grading? It's a beautiful coin.


Not unless you want to spend $30.00 on a coin worth less than a nickel. 

You can buy a whole roll of uncirculated 1984's on eBay for about $1.50

There were over 8.1 Billion minted from the Philadelphia Mint alone so there are plenty of them out there.

It is a nice looking coin, but it would have to grade at least MS68 to make it worth sending in, and it has too many hits and spots to grade that high. I would just enjoy it as is.
