1955 Double Die Lincoln Cent PCGS MS 63 BN Mint: Philadelphia: the 55 Double Die is an extremely popular doubled die variety from the Lincoln Cent series. The obverse design displays a wide spread of the lettering, making the doubling very dramatic. The variety was the result of improper preparation of the working dies at the Philadelphia Mint, which caused one of the impressions to strike misaligned. Approximately 40,000 cents were struck with the doubling. Mint employees decided to release about 24,000 pieces into circulation since they were already mixed with other coins. Examples turned up in the Boston and New York area and were immediately in demand.
