Re: [Error Coin Information Exchange] Beautiful off-center strike with mirror brockage
- As others have said, they're somewhat "common" for those early years, and I've found the price is pretty hit and miss with these.It's a nice looking coin, but there has to be 2 interested bidders bidding at the same time for a price to go "high", which for this coin wasn't the case. In another auction the coin could've gone for hundreds more. It's the nature of a free-market.JonOn Feb 3, 2013, at 11:09 AM, Michael Evanchik <ivan0000013@...> wrote:i was shocked the price wasnt more.its exactly something im looking for-but collecting only lincoln memorial errors,it didnt fit my collection parameters.From: Mike Diamond <mdia1@...>

I was somewhat surprised that the bidding for this cent wasn't more spirited:
Given it's early date (1921), excellent (AU-58) condition, and stupendous eye-appeal, I wouldn't have been surprised had it gone for $800.
I didn't bid, since I coughed up a hefty chunk of change for that dime on a copper core, and also since I have other low-pressure brockages (or brockage-makers) on both U.S. and foreign coins.
For some reason, these low-pressure brockages are fairly well-represented among cents from 1919 through 1921, with 1920 the most common date.
Anybody here come away with it?

It's the same old story. Brockages and capped die strikes still do not get the re$pect they deserve. It's somewhat unfortunate for this capped die (everything) collector. Perhaps the abundance of these error types from '99 to '01 has something to do with it.
