    1974-S Cent, MS64 Red and Brown
    Reverse Brockage From a 1973-S Cent

    1974-S Lincoln Cent -- Reverse Brockage of a 1973-S Cent -- MS64 Red and Brown NGC. A struck 1973-S cent and a cent planchet were fed together, one on top of the other, between 1974-S cent dies, with the reverse of the 1973-S cent facing the reverse die. The cent was rotated several degrees relative to the reverse die. The strike caused the present coin to have a 1974-S obverse and a reverse brockage from a 1973-S cent. The strike was unusually soft, with most of GOD WE on the brockage side absent, and peripheral weakness throughout the 1974-S side. A remarkable mint error. Each side has a few small carbon specks.
