1998 Type 2 Lincoln Cent- They exist!

Post by Eric Tille » Mon, 05 Feb 2001 01:36:34



I finally finished checking all my 2000 cents. Out of 412 I found one
type 2. Since Coin World said there were two 98 cents that claimed to
be Type 2 I started to check my 98 cents. Believe it or not, after
going through 40 of them, I found one. The reverse is identicle to the
2000. If anyone is interested I will scan it and post a link.

They could exist from 1993 to 2001.

Louie....you need to learn how to quote so we can understand what you are
responding to (see the way I quoted your response above).

Hey Louie,

I can only speak for the 1998 and 2000. I have not found any other
year with the Type 2 reverse. The reverse is the same on both.

So far, I have searched 620 2000 cents finding ONE type two. Out of
850 1998 I have found ONE. While I don't think these are rare, I
suspect they are not as common as some people may think.

BTW, I have been hoarding cents since 1993. I have also been checking
for 1995 DD cents but no luck there. I still have 3 3lb coffee cans
full that I have not got to yet.

Only a couple other posters quote the way you quote, most prefering the
greater than sign along the left margin to keep track of the author and
quotation history.  I usually re-edit yours throughout into the
standard format.

I wasn't suggesting that he use my method of quoting....just that he quote. As
for you....keep your hands off my quoting.
