Subject: [Error Coin Information Exchange] Huge horizontal misalignment
Date: Tuesday, December 29, 2009, 7:46 AMI was the underbidder on this huge horizontal misalignment of the obverse (hammer) die:
http://cgi.ebay. com/ws/eBayISAPI .dll?ViewItem& item=27050578412 1
The reason I didn't bid more is that I have one exactly like it, possibly from the same die pair. And mine is BU while this one is AU.
I strongly suspect this was struck in 1966. That was a banner year for major MAD's among Lincoln cents. I have 5 or six biggies from that year, all from different die pairs. All are misaligned toward the right or the left.
