1972 Doubled Die Obverse Cent, MS65 Red
Popular Modern Rehubbing Error

1972 1C Doubled Die Obverse MS65 Red NGC. CAC. FS-101. Several doubled die obverse varieties are known for the 1972 Lincoln cents, although only one of those is listed in the Guide Book. This fiery orange Gem is an example, with the date, LIBERTY, and IN GOD WE TRUST all boldly doubled. Although the doubling is less prominent than the variety minted 17 years earlier in 1955, it is visible without magnification. Such "naked eye" doubled die varieties are far more popular than those requiring a high-powered magnifier to view. This example has a few minuscule spots and trivial surface marks but remains as bright and fresh as the day it was made.
Purchased from the late Philadelphia coin dealer Harry Forman.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection.(Registry values: N491) (NGC ID# 22GU, PCGS# 2950)
