1967 Lincoln Cent
Magnetic Screw Struck and Bonded Onto Coin
PCGS MS 64 RD One of Two Known
This is one of only two known Lincoln cents that were bonded with a magnetic screw. The other Lincoln cent was bonded to a much smaller magnetic screw.
This one weighs 2.5 grams giving the total bonded error a weight of 5.6 grams. It is in gem mint state condition and certified in a PCGS oversized holder. It is one of the most eye appealing U.S. mint error coins ever discovered.
Fred Weinberg discovered this unbelievable mint error in a group of San Francisco error coins that he purchased from a long time collection and determined that this 1967 Lincoln cent was struck in the San Francisco Mint. It is a very dramatic combination of a long magnetic screw being struck by cent dies and bonded into the obverse of this Lincoln cent.
