1956-P Lincoln Cent Ch Unc Error Lamination Peel Obverse
Reference Item Number: 190104013
When the layers of alloy don't stick to one another well during the rolling process to make sheets of metal to cut into blanks, it's often hard to tell this happened before coins are struck and the pressure of the strike dislodges those layers from one another. The result is a coin that partially split apart after it was struck, leaving a 'torn' area of metal behind that shows a softer impression of the design that was struck in that area. Big ones like this are quite scarce and collectible.
As a seller I believe in full disclosure by way of a detailed description and large, clear photographs when warranted, but many less expensive and bulk items make more sense to carry with 'sample' photographs rather than photographing each individual lot sold. For that reason, if the description above specifies that a stock image is used, be aware that the items you will receive are in like kind to the images provided, but WILL NOT be the exact same items.
