Description

1955/55 FS-101 Cent, MS62 Brown
Famous Doubled Die Obverse

1955 1C Doubled Die Obverse MS62 Brown NGC. CAC. FS-101. The mintage is unknown but resulted from a single obverse die that was double hubbed. Estimates are normally pegged at about 25,000 pieces. NGC and PCGS have certified nearly 7,000 submissions in all grades. Both sides of this olive-brown example display full cartwheel luster and bold design motifs, with tinges of blue toning and faint traces of faded mint color. The obverse doubling is distinct as always.
A 2x2 cardboard coin holder accompanies this lot. There are no identifying marks other than a two letter dealer code "GS." The holder suggests a late 1960s or early 1970s acquisition.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection.(Registry values: N991) (NGC ID# 22FG, PCGS# 2825)
