Yes I know 1967 penny , who cares they only made 600,000,000 of them.     Well I came across a lot of ten mixed date pennies on a very poor out of focus picture, with only one coin that you could determine the date and that it was a missing sea example.    I already had a 1966 example and have been looking for a 1967 for many years.  and to my great surprise when the pennies arrived four of the five 1967s were missing sea types, so must have been stored away when new and have survived together for the past fifty four years.        After having a good look at the 1967s and comparing them with the 1966 I noticed that all the 1967s not only had the missing sea but also had a much shorter plume and a missing back shoulder strap , whereas on the 1966 missing sea the strap is present and the plume runs right down to touch the shoulder, as you find on the normal 1966/67s .

I'd appreciate photos of any 1961-65 pennies with missing waves.

Yes, I have to agree with Pete its a good book to buy for information on 20th century Bronze.

Doesn't Freeman mention that all 1960s pennies had slightly different reverse dies? I think Gouby glossed over it.
