    1972 Lincoln Cent, MS67 Red
    Guide Book Doubled Die Obverse

    1972 1C Doubled Die Obverse, FS-101, MS67 Red PCGS. The 1972 double die cent is rightfully one of the most sought-after varieties in the Lincoln cent series. Wide doubling appears on the date, LIBERTY, and IN GOD WE TRUST -- visible to the sharp unaided eye, and every bit as dramatic as other famous doubled dies in the series. This is a Registry Set caliber coin, essential to a complete set. The Superb Gem surfaces show just a handful of pinpoint specks, and a minor tick in the right obverse field. Lustrous, satin-smooth fields and devices emit fiery copper-orange color throughout both sides. Population: 65 in 67 (3 in 67+) Red, 1 finer (9/19).

    Coin Index Numbers: (Variety PCGS# 38013, Base PCGS# 2950)

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Zinc
