    Wow! What don't I see. I've never seen the "T" accompanying the "Y" of LIBERTY between the columns with a partial "R" just outside the columns. Would this be called a "Full Chin":woot: between the 3rd and 5th columns from the right? There is more, but I'll let others chime in.

    That may be one of the heaviest clashes I've seen on a Lincoln cent. That's nice.

    The date and RTY on the reverse is awesome. Obverse die has field inside lapel.
    And there is more.

    Nice bold clash. Not very common on a Lincoln.

    Lapel lightning strike off the roof and the "O" behind Lincoln's head.

    Super Clash! Wasn't that a heavy metal band in the '80s?

    Nice example Joe. Did you find it in circulation? Since the zincoln came out, I don't even look closely at pennies, but seeing this, I might have to start. LOL

    I saw it in an auction. Noticed the partial date on the reverse and I was all in :)

    Yes, the date and the big O really stood out to me. Quite a nice die clash

    Normally I would say that since die clashes are so common they do not command a premium. But when you get a really severe clash such as this one they DO bring a premium. Clash marks like this are NOT common.

    Some of these strong die clashes are quite rare. The reason is that the mint workers can see the clash easy and quickly replace the die or dies. I have a slabbed major dieclash cent coin here somewhere that I showed on here. Everyone yelled it is a hammer job but I knew better because it would be impossible to have been done outside of the die chamber. I even sent it to Wexler and he said he could not see any reason to say the grading Co. got it wrong.

    I have lots of die clash coins because I used to collect them before I got in poor health. I have a nickel coin here somewhere that is from a pair of counter clash dies. Both the obv. and rev. show extra details of the obv. on the obv. and extra rev. details on the rev. This came from the second strike of the already clashed dies. So far this is the only one I know of like it. You may be able to see this awesome beauty at maddieclash.com I would get some photos but I'm just feeling too bad.
