    Fun coin. I wonder what it was with the 1960 cent dies that created so many die chips?

    I wonder the same thing. I have many examples of these in 50’s and 60’s pennies.

    probably too brittle of dies from improper heat treating
    or too much compression strength, or both. lol

    As Claw says or cost savings measures as this date/MM is rife with chips, cracks and RPM's.

    Are those die cracks running both between the 1 and 9, and running down from the R in LIBERTY?
