    Three-Piece Bonded Obverse Die Cap
    1999 Cent, MS64 Red and Brown

    1999 1C Lincoln Cent -- Three-Piece Bonded Obverse Die Cap -- MS64 Red and Brown PCGS. A cent stuck to the obverse die, and remained there for a series of additional strikes against newly fed planchets, two of which adhered to the obverse die cap. The result is a heavy, broad, multi-layer cent that shows design elements on at least one of the inner layers. The reverse shows an expanded, distorted Lincoln Memorial, caused by multiple strikes against planchets following an initial impression against the reverse die.
    Ex: Baltimore ANA Signature (Heritage, 8/2008), lot 2668, which realized $2,070.
