1983 was the first year for full production of copper plated zinc cents and the mint obviously had problems with these.
I agree...I think you would call it a strike error...the plating was too thin for the pressure of the strike...Spark
Yes...there was a recent post that called it that, a few months ago, maybe?...I suppose because the zinc showing imitates doubling..I think @paddyman98 might have used the term...Spark
@Kentucky ...read post #8 again...I was adding some info while you responded...Spark
Great link...Thank You, Sir!...Spark
You do in 1983. they had problems with it so later years are struck on planchets with a double thickness copper plating so you don't see it near as often in the later years.
