    Thanks Charmy. It is a former LeeG Lincoln. Acquired it in one of Lee's fire sales a couple of years ago.

    I love this post and it piqued my interest as one of my main coin collections is a short set of early date Lincolns in 65 BN Feel free to check it out as it needs some more view counts.

    Anyway, I was checking out the 1909 SVDB that robec posted and I thought it looked familiar. When I had a minute, I dug it out and found myself looking at the same exact coin. I purchased it in 2009 at FUN from Angel Dee's for a pretty penny as you might imagine. I'm sure you don't remember Charmy, but I showed it to you at that show as I was still vibrating from the deal. It is truely a special coin and it will be in my family for quite some time as I bought it for my son to commemorate his birth in March 2009(100 year anniversary).

    So I have to ask, robec, is there a mistake or are you claiming a coin you don't currently own? I wouldn't post a picture of a coin without saying it was an archive photo. When I listed it in my Registry, it said I had to wait for it to be "released," so was that your registry? All I know is that this coin of mine is really cool and thanks for posting great pictures of it for me so I don't have to. Just setting the record straight. Matt

    Matt, I only claim to have owned the coin. I sold it to a PCGS member shortly before the Heritage auction, probably in late 2008. What he did with it I didn't know, but now do. I do however own the images. It is a great coin and I am sure you will be extremely happy with it.

    Nice coins Charmy!

    Honestly, I don't understand that 1926-S. The only time I've seen zinc colored obverse is when a coin has been heat treated. Zinc has a significantly lower melting point than copper, 425°C versus 1085°C, so it tends to the surface when a Lincoln is heated. Is the obverse actually completely zinc colored?

    Thad, it's pretty close to the color you see, perhaps with a tiny bit of magenta toning showing through. If a copper coin is heat treated, then wouldn't both sides show silver color?

    Remember this beauty? It was the last coin I kept from my aunt's inheritance that got me started in coins - she had it for years, and I sent it to PCGS to be graded and was pleasantly surprised! I'm pretty sure it wasn't purposely heat treated, but it probably toned this was due to the way it was stored, possibly near or around heat.

    Yea, I remember that one.

    I haven't tried, but I suspect if you put the coin on ice and use a torch on one side you could get this effect on one side. I've just experimented on a surface burner and an oven but I did see a few that were different obverse to reverse......but not like the one you posted. There's still a good bit of red on the reverse.

    How many copper cents have you seen that looked like that 26-S? For me, that's the first one. As a scientist and numismatist, I'd just like for someone to explain to me how that could natrually happen. I'd love to analyze that coin in the lab. Want to crack it out and send it to me? LOL

    I have not seen one with so much silver showing through, but I have and have seen several with significant silver spots on them.
