So I was doing the typical afternoon routine, which is examining coins, and I came across a 1968 S BU lincoln cent that the ANA gave me. My birthday was in August and they sent me that coin, and though it is a nice coin, a BU 1968 S lincoln cent is only worth like 50 cents.
I understood the ANA can't be just giving away valuable coins, but I also thought they could of done better than a 1968 S. So today I decided to examine the coin, and then it hit me. Maybe it was a RPM or something similar. I took out my loupe and sure enough, it looked like a filled S. That definitely made it worth more than a standard 1968 S.
I attached some pics, so let me know what you think. I couldn't get the best pictures, but when examined in person it is almost undoubtedly a filled S. Let me know what you think, because I am not a professional either.1 year ago
