    1979 Jefferson Nickel on a Lincoln Cent
    MS63 Red and Brown

    1979 5C Jefferson Nickel -- Double Denomination on a 1978 Lincoln Cent -- MS63 Red and Brown PCGS. An unblemished rose-red, sun-gold, and olive-brown "six-cent" piece. Struck flush with the collar die at 2 o'clock. The nickel date is full and clear. The cent date is inverted and surprising sharp, located on Jefferson's nose. Lincoln gazes west relative to Jefferson. The Lincoln Memorial is visible where it overlaps Monticello. A majority of IN GOD WE TRUST and more than half of E PLURIBUS is off the flan. Muted red luster is seen over each side.
