1964 Penny -What Do You think?

Recommended Posts

I got this coin recently and looks almost normal. What do readers think?

I will show a second picture ASAP

Yes, the rim does look very flat but everything else seems OK.

OK, this was a trick post - the coin is certified as TWO reverse dies, a genuine double-reverse coin!

How has that happened

I believe that was from the era of "mint sport"; as I had [I believe] previously posted I also have a double reverse proof 1970 penny. The OP coin was slabbed as AU58 Brown by NGC. There may be a dash over ONE and will have to look at the original coin.

These are more obviously so, whereas I am not certain of the off metal strikes in CuNi (I have one of each date of those 1964-67).

the first one looks to have a noticeably smaller date.

Yes, I agree. I doubt anybody has studied date varieties of the poor 1964 penny??

Probably not... with one possible exception - Dave Groom. If you have a copy of his bronze 20th Century varieties book (I don't), he may have covered this.

For 1964 . Groom has 2 reverses , a reverse F with a calm sea , similar to the 1963 , and a rev G which has a choppy sea .Also noted are 2 parralel lines in the exergue to the left of the date , short helmet plumes and missing waves .

One reason the date looks smaller is that the teeth are small just below the exergue area giving the impression there's more space below the 9 and 6. Maybe it's an optical illusion, or a variety with compressed teeth?

No doubt other assets....

 

IMO still looks like the one date is larger than the other when looking at each digit - see for example the top stem to the "6".

You're just jealous that me and Richard got in before you.....

 

Or is my reaction based on a bottle of Macallan and Wayne Shorter's  'Speak no Evil'. from 1965,....a dangerous combination.....?
