    Outstanding Premium Gem 1989 Lincoln Cent Error Struck on Dime Planchet

    1989 1C Lincoln Cent--Struck on Clad 10c Planchet--MS66 PCGS. Mis-labeled on the holder as a 1980. Bright and highly lustrous, with light golden toning. The 198 date is bold, except that the bottom half of the zero is missing, and the very tops of UST are truncated. On the reverse, the tops of UNITED STATES OF AMER are gone, and the central Lincoln cent design details are distorted and mushy over the lower right steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Two or three small abrasions are apparent in the same vicinity. An outstanding example of this rare error type.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22HF, PCGS# 3001)
