Question
double stampped pennie
double stampped pennie  
I have a 1972double stamped pennie, but this has the front lincons head, and the back stamp , building across lincons face, the top of the pen. Has no edge, it is stamped, flat

Answer
Hi,
From the photos, I have to believe that this is not a genuine mint error.  The lettering from the back would be raised not incure.
It almost appears that someone put 2 coins together, put in a vise and presses them into each other.
Just my opinion, but I don't think it has any value.
