    1969-S Doubled Die Obverse Cent, AU58
    Popular Lincoln Memorial Variety

    1969-S 1C Doubled Die Obverse, FS-101, AU58 PCGS. With the sole exception of the S mintmark, all of the obverse lettering is sharply doubled on this popular variety. That combination is important to distinguish between the true doubled die varieties and others that have machine doubling. If all of the lettering is doubled including the mintmark, then it is not a true doubled die. The reason is that the mintmark was punched into the die after all other steps were completed, including the die sinking that resulted in the die doubling. Although wear touches the highest points of the design, this piece retains luster with light to medium brown surfaces and splashes of chocolate patina on the obverse. Hints of lavender appear on the reverse. Population: 13 in 58, 9 finer (3/21).
