    Unanswered: 1999 negative obverse on reverse

    hello everyone, my first post so bear with me on my descriptive wording or lack of it, reverse has a negative of the obverse stamped on it, with backwards liberty pretty clear cutting through the c in cent , with the rim of the negative running around the whole coin (off set) and it looks like some of Lincolns face or maybe that would be top of his head at 9:00. so what does that all mean?99 lincoln obverse on reverse.jpg1999 obverse neg liberty through C.jpg1999 obverse negative on reverse 1500.jpg1999 obverse negative on reverse 2100.jpg

    Thanks in advance

    Good first post.

    Garage Job: Also called a squeeze job, vise job, or hammer job, this is intentional post-strike damage when a coin is smashed against another coin or object, usually in an attempt to make it look like a genuine mint error. When squeezed or smashed against another coin, a mirror-image in reverse relief of each coinís devices will transfer onto the other. Below you can see a mirrored incuse LIBERTY on the coin as the result of being pressed into another cent.

    Thank you for your first post! You did just fine! I think every Lincoln hunter runs across one or more of these garage job cents! Here is a great website with a lot of info on actual mint errors that you might be interested in! http://www.error-ref.com/

    Welcome and don't get discouraged.
    These are very convincing and are difficult to comprehend at first. But stick with us.

    Well I'll be dipped in #@%&?, That had me going, Soon as I saw your reply, I walked right over to my vice and made another one, that I will keep with the other one, so no other un suspected individual will have his/her heart skip a beat when they come across one. This is why you guys get paid the big bucks.
    Thanks for getting back to me, I will keep hunting for something made in a mint and not Joe's garage.
    Thanks again

    Welcome to the forum! Just a suggestion. It's best not to use your email as your user name. You leave yourself open to spammers that way. Ask an administrator to help you change it to something else.
