1920 Dot Over Upper Scroll PENNY
The 1920 penny variety with a small dot above the upper scroll on the reverse has not been confirmed to exist. Reference to the coin has appeared in some catalogs over recent years, hence the valuations stated above. However, prominent coin dealers deny it's existence, all purported examples found to date proving to be counterfeits created by modifications made to the standard 1920 penny.
