Extremely Rare Lincoln Cent Wheat Ears Struck Off-Center on Silver Dime Planchet
This is an extremely rare off-center Silver Cent. Struck 15% off-center and dated in the 1940's, the reverse has the Wheat Ears design. The pedigree is ex Rich Schemmer and it was certified years ago in an old NGC slab as XF 45. It is conservatively graded and is an attractive multiple mint error. Perfect for the serious Lincoln Cent collector of major mint errors.
I previously sold a similar Lincoln Cent (Wheat Ears) struck off-center on a silver dime planchet which was featured in my NLG award winning book, World's Greatest Mint Errors.
A similar 1943-S Cent struck off-center on a dime planchet
was featured in Chapter 24 (Spectacular Errors) of my
NLG award winning book, World's Greatest Mint Errors.
