Blunders Can Have Great Value

By Rubel Shelly

The March 13 issue of
Coin World carries exciting news for coin collectors. The Philadelphia mint struck a number of 1995 pennies with a faulty die. What's so exciting about a "boo-boo" at the mind? It makes those coins with the out-of-focus words "Liberty" and "In God" valuable items for collectors.

Early estimates are that the penny could be worth somewhere between $175 and $225. That amounts to quite a return on a paltry one-cent investment!
