These are ordinary Lincoln Cents that a private company stamped with a rather crude portrait of John Kennedy. They were sold for about $1 glued to a card that listed several "amazing" similarities between the two assassinated Presidents. Like Lincoln was shot in the Ford Theater and Kennedy in a car built by the Ford Motor Co (a Lincoln). Kennedy had a secretary named Lincoln and Lincoln had a secretary named Kennedy. About the only similarity listed that is 100% accurate is that both were succeeded by a Vice President named Johnson.

The two sides of a coin are referred to as "Heads" and "Tails" because, the obverse usually has somebody's "head" on it, like a King, Queen or President, etc. The reverse side is therefore referred to as "tails". Heads and tails.

All coins have two sides, an obverse and a reverse. The obverse is the front or the "heads" side, the reverse is the back or the "tails" side.

heads and tails The technical terms are obverse (front) and reverse (back)

Technically, the two surfaces of a coin are known as the obverse (front) and reverse (back). Informally, they are known as heads or tails. One side is called the obverse the other side is called the reverse. The obverse is general the side which features a monarch or president.

It isn't "worth" anything, but if glued to a card listing the "amazing similarities" shared by these two assassinated Presidents, they sell for about $1.

Wheat cents are a variety of Lincoln cents minted from 1909 to 1958, currently worth about two cents. The Lincoln memorial pennies are still face value.

the penny has two faces on it one small one of Abe Lincoln on the back and a big one of Abe on the front

It's likely been altered by putting 3 penny's in a vise, the middle coin will have a reverse mirror image of the other two coins. But just to be sure, take it to a coin dealer.

The coin has two images shifted very slightly from one another, almost like "ghost" image. Please see the Related Link for a picture.

Two. Lincoln's head is on the front, and a magnifying glass will show that on the back is the Lincoln memorial, with a very tiny Lincoln sitting inside. Check it yourself!

The Stegosaurus was thought to have two heads by its predators. This scared them off. It didn't really have two heads though.

Yes, it can have a mutation which causes it to have two heads.

Those symbols are the obverse and reverse of the Great Seal of the United States. The eagle is the obverse and the pyramid is the reverse.

Theoretically, if you have a fair coin, the chances of landing on heads after 1000 tosses is 500, since there are only two outcomes, heads or tails, and each outcome is equally likely. Experimentally, however, the number of times the penny would turn up heads is any number from 1 to 1000, including 1 and 1000 (although these are very unlikely outcomes). The most likely outcome is a number very close to 500.

The value depends on the type and severity of the the error. If nothing else, it contains two cents' worth of copper.

If the turtle was mutaded then it would have two heads

The dumb answer is two, front and back. The trick answer for Lincoln cents minted since 1959 is also two - the bust of Lincoln on the front and the teeny-tiny-itty-bitty image inside the Lincoln Memorial on the back. You need a low-power microscope to see it with any detail, but it's there.

A wheat penny is any Lincoln cent that was made between 1909 and 1958. The back of a wheat penny says, "One Cent", and it has a picture of two ears of wheat on either side of these words. Earlier (Indian head) cents and any cents dated 1959 or later aren't wheat cents.

The obverse, or front side, looked very much like modern cents although the design has been touched up a bit over the years. The reverse, or back side, carried the words ONE CENT between two curved wheat ears, symbolic of America's agricultural strength. That led to the coins being called "wheat cents".
