This is a spectacular double denomination. It is a 1995 Lincoln Cent struck on a struck 1991 Roosevelt Dime. It is 1 of 2 known double denomination Cent on Dimes struck 4 years apart.

The Lincoln portrait is almost entirely visible over the Roosevelt Dime reverse design making this one of the most visually dramatic and eye appealing double denominations known. The Roosevelt portrait is still almost entirely visible underneath the memorial design of the Cent. Both dates are clearly visible as well. It is in gem mint state condition, well struck and is one of the most fascinating United States mint errors known.
