Why Buy This XF-UNC Random Date (1996-2001) Broadstruck Mint Error Lincoln Cent?

The Lincoln cent is one of the most widely collected coins today. This is a very long running series, they've been struck by the U.S. Mint for well over a century at this point. The first Lincoln cents were minted in 1909, the Lincoln cent replaced the Indian Head cent. The specimen offered here will have a random date between 1996 and 2001. Regardless of the date on the coin you receive, it will be a Mint error. This type of error is called broadstruck which is the result of a mechanical failure during the strike. Broadstruck mint errors occur when a coin is struck without a collar, the retaining ring that establishes the final diameter of a coin being struck. Without the collar to contain the planchet being struck, the coin will expand beyond the boundary of a typical coin, sometimes dramatically so.

  • You will receive a Lincoln cent with a broadstruck error.
  • The date could be from 1996-2001.
  • The condition can range as well.
