Coin and Paper Money Collecting/1951-d lincoln wheat cent


        I have a 1951-d cent that appears to have multiple errors.
E pluribus unum is written on both sides of the coin. The coin is warped.The rim and edge of the coin are abnormal. Also, lincoln's face has a skeletal appearance, and there is lettering on his head. I sure would appreciate any info or input you could give me  on this coin. thank You, Sue

Hi Susan,

Without seeing it, and by your description, I would have to say your coin sustained damage at some point after it left the mint -- like somebody used a press to squish a couple pennies together, to transfer images from one coin to the other, and what you have is one of those squished pennies.

As such, it has no collector value.

I hope this helps,

My strong familiarity with all U.S. Mint coins, extensive reference library, and close relationships with many other dealers allows me to identify just about any coin made in the USA. I receive regular updates to all the current price guides -- both wholesale & retail -- to provide accurate values. So, with a good description or pictures, I should be able to identify and value any U.S. coin you have.


I've been a coin dealer since the 1980's and a coin collector since the 1960's. I specialize in U.S. Silver Coins and have an active online website -- The Working Man's Rare Coins -- -- offering information and inventory in U.S. coins.
