6 Hidden Treasures in Your Pocket Change Worth Over $ 200,000

1943 Bronze Lincoln 

Few bronze pennies have been unearthed, including Lutes'. “The most valuable Lincoln cent sold privately in 2010 for $1.7 million,” Stone said.

1969-S Doubled Die Obverse 

There is a misalignment that occurs when the hub imprints an additional image onto a die, also known as a stamp, which results in the creation of dual dies. 

1992 Close AM Reverse 

The right foot of the "A" and the left foot of the "M" in "AMERICA" touch on the back of the 1992 Close AM, Stone said. (Those letters are very clearly separated on most pennies made that year.)

1972 Doubled Die Obverse 

The doubling on this penny is particularly noticeable in the phrases "LIBERTY" and "IN GOD WE TRUST," with some light doubling on the date, according to Stone. 

1995 Doubled Die Obverse 

The doubling isn't as clear on these coins as it was on the 1972 Doubled Die coins, but Bucki said it's very clear in the word "LIBERTY," especially in the letter "B." The date also has some light doubles.

1999 Wide AM Reverse 

For the regular run, Bucki said, the letters "A" and "M" in "AMERICA" were supposed to be close together, while for the special proof coins, there was supposed to be more room between them.
