This is what’s called a Poorman’s Double Die. In 1955, the mint made two errors while pumping out all those pennies. One error messed up the entire date. It looks like 11995555. That’s worth a nice vacation for two to one of those sunny places. The double die that I have (several) of is the Poorman’s. Just the last 5 is doubled. I can’t even make a phone call with the poorman’s double die 🙂
