Yep, sure is.
It's super rare, I think something like less than 30 were minted. Since its slabbed I'd guess its real.
It looks real to me...and they are known to exist. I know a couple years ago a 1944-S steel cent graded by NGC as MS66 sold for $374K at auction.
NGC thinks it is genuine.
Their opinion is good enough for me.
Hey Cave Troll,
Does my ex wife know you're using her college yearbook picture as your avatar? Just wondering.
I actually just spit out some of my drink when I read that
Looks genuine to me, not only is it in a respectable slab, it's certification number checks out. I looked it up on NGC's site. All I know is, they are incredibly rare and fetch six figures regardless of the grade. There were only a few minted. They are even more rare and valuable than the '43 Copper cents, and less exist. I'd take one in any grade, they are truly the ultimate Lincoln cent to own.
i will start the bidding at One Dollar.... any takers? lol
It's real. Overgraded, but real.
Real, a very rare coin.
:thumb:Nice 1 JW MS-61 too great buy!!!
I know the highest grade one I have seen was MS64 I think.
MS 61 ? I think this coin is circulated. A dirty looking one to be graded as Mint State 61. Just my Honest Opinion.
I am not sure,but H.A or Stacks and Tel-a-Trade:devil:
do get better grades on coins than Joe Q Public do.
The coin was discussed on the NGC forum and there were links to an article about it and even in the article the owner states that it shows evidence of circulation. General concensus is that it is an AU, probably a 55.
Concensus??? Pcgs would cut to MS-60 or AU-58
but do the concensus or Consensus is that work as a grader for any TPG??? there the experts.
Were all hope we can just get a MS-65/66 on any coin we submit?
great coin, like one for myself. i will check out ebay for one. don,t know if the coin shops here in london will have one.
unfortunately, crow, there are less that 20 of these known to exist. I don't think eBay or your local coin shops will have any of these.
Here is one for sale if you are interested, but I am not sure why it is listed twice.
BTW, it says there are 10 known to exist.
