    Washington Quarter Struck Over a
    Lincoln Memorial Cent
    26-Cent Piece, MS64 Red

    Undated 25C Eagle Reverse Washington Quarter -- Double Denomination on a Struck Lincoln Memorial Cent -- MS64 Red NGC. First struck as a Lincoln Memorial cent, this coin was subsequently struck by pre-1999 Washington quarter dies. For the strike as a quarter, the centering favors the portrait and eagle with the date off the flan. The cent date was on the field near Washington's nose but was effaced by the quarter strike. Lincoln's shoulder and much of the Lincoln Memorial remains from the first impression. No quarter mintmark is apparent near the ribbon or below the wreath. The peach-red color is unmellowed. No marks or spots are readily apparent. No weight is recorded on the NGC insert, but the mint error appears to be bronze instead of copper-plated zinc.
