This guide contains a complete listing of the types of errors with descriptions and photos. A listing of all types of errors and the actual values of the errors is included and much more. This book reveals the types of errors in an existing coin search of 250,000 Lincoln cents, giving collectors an idea of what to expect from bankrolled coins. We have found many varieties of Lincoln cents minted from different dies created to produce coins in the same year. We have located many error coins from our search and sold them at coin shows for more than $3,000. Searching through rolls of Lincoln cents is an excellent way to find error coins of value and profit from the finds. Close to 28.8 billion wheat cents were minted from 1909 through 1958. From 1959 through 2021, 513 billion Lincoln cents were minted. From these numbers, it is easy to see why the chances for Lincoln cent errors are good. Since Lincoln cents are minted in the billions, the toll on the dies is extreme, with replacements frequently needed. Die cracks are common on coins dating from the 1990s as dies frequently fracture, creating various error types. Almost every date has before 1996 has an RPM error, and most dates have DDO errors which give collectors of error coins a wide range of dates to look for errors. There are thousands of error coins in circulation worth hundreds and thousands of dollars. Some error coins are apparent, and others are difficult to see without magnification. Error seekers have an opportunity to locate the coins that are not easily recognized by using this guide and the photos presented.

Striking errors include all errors created in the minting process. Die errors are the result of creating and reworking dies. Included in this guide is a listing of all error coins with photos and descriptions. A chapter is dedicated to Lincoln cent RPM and doubled die errors since 1909. No other guide has a glossary of numismatic terms as extensive and validated by PCGS, NGC, ANACS, and other numismatic organizations. There are eight double-die classifications, some of which are not easy to detect without knowledge of the error type. An appendix is provided with the classifications, descriptions, and photos. The author has over 60 years of collecting experience, long before the grading services recognized error coins.
