    1969-S Lincoln Cent, MS61 Brown
    Guide Book Doubled Die Obverse

    1969-S 1C Doubled Die Obverse, FS-101, MS61 Brown PCGS. Strong doubling is easily seen on the date and the letters in LIBERTY. The 1969-S Doubled Die Obverse is a rare and sought-after issue that always commands significant premiums. The variety is listed in both the Guide Book and Cherrypickers. The glossy surfaces of this handsome Mint State specimen have mellowed to a pleasing olive-brown, but only minor signs of contact are evident. The design elements are sharply detailed throughout, and the doubling is plainly evident on the pickup points. This coin will be a welcome addition to a fine specialized collection. Population: 2 in 61 Brown, 4 finer (7/17). (Variety PCGS# 37994, Base PCGS# 2921)

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Zinc
