    1972 Doubled Die Obverse Cent, MS65 Red
    Popular Modern Rehubbing Error

    1972 1C Doubled Die Obverse MS65 Red NGC. CAC. FS-101. Several doubled die obverse varieties are known for the 1972 Lincoln cents, although only one of those is listed in the Guide Book. This fiery orange Gem is an example, with the date, LIBERTY, and IN GOD WE TRUST all boldly doubled. Although the doubling is less prominent than the variety minted 17 years earlier in 1955, it is visible without magnification. Such "naked eye" doubled die varieties are far more popular than those requiring a high-powered magnifier to view. This example has a few minuscule spots and trivial surface marks but remains as bright and fresh as the day it was made.
    Purchased from the late Philadelphia coin dealer Harry Forman.
    From The Eric P. Newman Collection.(Registry values: N491) (NGC ID# 22GU, PCGS# 2950)

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
