    Double Struck Silver Alloy 1982 Cent

    1982 1C Large Date Cent--Double Struck on a 84% Silver, 16% Copper Planchet--MS64 NGC. 2.4 grams. A double error, since the piece is double struck, and it struck on a curious silver alloy planchet. The planchet is similar, but not identical, to the 90% silver, 10% copper, 2.5 gram standard for the pre-1965 U.S. dime. Although the insert states it is a flipover double struck, this is incorrect. The second strike is rotated about 180 degrees relative to the first strike. UNUM is faintly visible above CENT, and the 8 in the date is lightly apparent near IN. Other traces of the first strike emerge upon prolonged study. The second strike is off center a few degrees toward 9 o'clock. A remarkable mint error, unlikely to be duplicated.

Excellent prices when selling through their auctions and you don’t even have to put any reserves on any coins. Simply the biggest company but more importantly the best.
