Description

Obverse Die Cap 1998 Cent
MS67 Red, Dramatic Mint Error

1998 1C Lincoln Cent -- Obverse Die Cap -- MS67 Red NGC. This dramatic thimble-shaped die cap was caused when a newly struck cent stuck to the obverse die. It then acted as a die against a series of cent planchets, and the force from those strikes caused the present cent to wrap around the collar of the obverse die. The struck portion became paper-thin, lost its copper plating, and shows the obverse die incused and reversed as it was struck through the thin "floor" of the die cap. This "floor" has partially separated from the "walls" of the die cap though a connecting hinge is still present.
