Today’s “Money Monday” topic: Double Die Coins
This 1955 Lincoln penny is a perfect example of a double die coin & is said to have started the hobby of collecting “error coins” in the U.S.
Double die coins are coins that have been struck with a misprinted die (mold) & appear to have overlapping images. There are also double struck coins; which are coins that get stuck in the coining chamber & are struck twice- resulting in a flattened, distorted image. Interestingly enough, there are also tripled and quadrupled die coins!
But are they valuable? Error coins, such as double dies, have the potential to be valuable. **If you wish to find the value of YOUR coin, simply log on to www.KAantiques.com, become a member & contact one of our certified, online appraisers today!
