    Obverse Die Cap, Double Struck
    MS67 Red 1998 Cent

    1998 1C Lincoln Cent -- Double Struck, Obverse Die Cap -- MS67 Red NGC. The story of this spectacular error begins with its initial strike, which took place between the obverse die and the obverse of a previously struck cent. That strike left the present cent stuck to the obverse die, and it acted in the place of an obverse die against a series of newly fed cents. These strikes caused the obverse rim to raise and wrap around the top of the obverse die, while the brockage reverse image expanded and became faint. Eventually, the present coin separated from the obverse die but was struck one additional time, approximately 60% off center toward 3 o'clock, at 7:30 relative to the die cap. This final strike was uniface obverse.
