    Yet another numismatic spelling error to appear in a news article...

    So, when quoting Mr. Mudd, KOAA wrote planchets as "plangents."
    Just thought I would share.

    And here I thought they were struck on Plantagenets. Richard III, perhaps.

    I think someone just corrected the word in that article.

    “Some of the planchets, pieces of metal made into coins, got stuck into the old hoppers from the previous years... "

    The owner will be happy to know that it is worth $1 million.

    Yes, looks like someone noticed that plangent doesn't mean a piece of metal...

    When I was a kid, ads were offering $10,000 for copper 1943's.
    And then not too long ago it was under 100K.
    Are they really worth a million dollars now? I thought the last one sold for around $250K.

    At least one has broken the million dollar mark.

    Checked, the unique 1943 D copper cent sold back in Sept 2010 for $1.7 million.

    For a minute, I thought this topic was about an eBay listing until I clicked on it. :p
    :D

    Just saying. How many times have we seen fake 43 copper cents. Excuse me

    I think you misunderstood my earlier post, I was agreeing with you, and joking about how I assumed this thread was related to a a fake listing on eBay. ;)

    And of course: penny, penny, penny!

    It goes well with the media, which is stupid, stupid, stupid and, for good measure, stupid.
