    I pulled this from a mint bag a while back and still haven't determined what exactly is going on with it. I am guessing it was struck on a thin/defective/split planchet. What do you guys think?

    Very, very cool!

    I had a $50 Mint bag of 1980 (P) Lincoln cents that took me 4-1/2 years to search (in between headaches). I didn't even think of looking for something like that. Instead, I found a lot of dropped element strikethroughs and 228 "Y clashes".

    I never wanna see a 1980 again...lol. I found 10 clips,1 double clip,a few broadstrikes and this. Not a single clash unfortunately

    Don't worry Chris. Something that obvious would have probably been detected. I have faith in you.

    It is likely a rolled thin planchet. However the flatter part of the rim leaves me puzzled.

    That is about the weight for a thin planchet error

    My biggest regret is that the headaches I got from searching all those pennies irritated me so much that I sold two other unsearched $50 Mint bags of 1974. To this day, I still wonder what I might have found in those bags. ~ Chris

    do these have any premium? Im curious as to what I could expect to get out of it if I were to sell it.

    Maybe, but when you have an original bag of 5,000 coins from the same production run, there is no telling what you might find. ~ Chris

    For sure,i couldn't let go of a sealed bag,regardless of the date.

    By the way, the code at the bottom of your bag refers to the production run. The two bags that I had were from the same run. ~ Chris

    They go for around $15-$30 in MS grades. They are much more common than people think. It costs more to certify them than they are actually worth. My certified 1971-D cent is an MS65 Red, and only 2.3 grams. Picked it up for $22.

    I guess we have different purchasing experiences.
    I purchased all of mine from Fred Weinberg for a little bit more than that.
