Probably,its somewhat common on proofs.
No doubt you will not see a change in the reverse until 2159, in keeping with the U.S. Mint's practice of celebrating every 50 years of Lincoln's birth. Unless of course if "pennies" would not be struck for circulation anymore (see Canada), then a "new" Lincoln would hopefully be struck for collectors only (can't see the Mint pass up an opportunity for some profit). Then, perhaps, we would see a new reverse, and a return to the same composition as pre-1982 and as featured on special 2009 Lincolns. Zincoln's nevermore!
As far as the Lincoln cent proof coins I'd like to know why the don't make them with original alloy instead of plated zinc. If they did the coins would last a long time unlike the current alloy that if there is a minor issue with plating they corrode from the inside out.
If they did they'd have to order the different alloy planchets. For us collectors, they'd probably double the price of proof sets and make even more profit.
@dollar great pictures. seems you have that art well in hand. great coin to. to me it looks like some kind of material that was caught in the minting process. again, great pictures. good luck to ya
Yeah. The shield sucks. Always liked the wheaties
I'd like to see the original 'Eagle Reverse' Washington quarters come back. The 'state' series was fine but now, imo, they're searching for things now and has gotten out of hand. Again, just my opinion.
I'm definitely bias. The 'silver Washingtons' have always been my favorite.
Not just yours...at least mine, also. Thx.
