    Hi guys,

    I have this 1968 S Lincoln Proof Penny and would like to know what is going on with the S mint mark. Are these die chips in between the curves of the "S" which make the "S" look filled in? Is this common on a 1968 S Lincoln Proof Penny? 1968 S Lincoln Proof Penny (Obverse2).jpg 1968 S Lincoln Proof Penny (Close Up0.jpg 1968 S Lincoln Proof Penny (Reverse).jpg

    Nope. Those are Die Chips. IMHO

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    You're correct. Die Chips (Internal Die Break). It's not an RPM. Not sure if it's common on proofs, but I don't believe it adds anything to the value.

    Cannot find any info on RPM for this date, so probably chips? IDK

    I thought die chips were mostly common on 1950's pennies not late 60's pennies??

    Incorrect. Die Chips can occur on Mint Marks for any year.
