Is this PENNY-NICKEL OVERSTRIKE real?

Discussion in 'Error Coins' started by JAMES RONDINONE, Sep 24, 2020.

  1. On the front of this 1944 penny are the letters c-e-n-t-s and o in reverse as they would be found on the back of a Jefferson nickel. Is this error from the mint or is it fabricated? Please help.

    Incused and backwards letters.
    Vise job, squeeze job. Another coin was pressed very hard against it.
    Not a Mint Error of any kind.
    Just damaged/fabricated.

    The letters are backwards so it's fake

    Absolutely fabricated, and NOT by the Mint . . . .

    Looks accidental rather than faked for profit. It's like the edge of the coin got caught just as another coin was being ??, put through a machine of some type. While NAV, No Added Value, I'd keep it as an oddity.
