Product Description

The coin market was sent into a frenzy with this release in 1960. It was a time when coin collecting was becoming very prevalent, and astute collectors were looking out for variety and error coins. The Mint was concerned that the "0" in 1960 was too small, which could cause a an issue with the die causing the "0" to look like a blob. In an effort to fix this, the Mint enlarged the date on the coin. 

It is believed just 100,000-200,000 of the 1960 Proof Lincoln Pennies were struck with the "Small Date" before the Mint enlarged the date for the majority of the mintage. The coin was even mentioned in many major newspapers and many people went searching for this error piece. Add this popular error to your collection today!
