wow, ok too many coins to choose from here, as stated, please only one coin per topic please.
So to choose one from above - pictures 6 through 10 is a very damaged cent. it looks like someone pressed it against another cent in a vise many, many, many times.....
as for the rest, scrolling up and down and counting the pictures is far too tiring for my old eyes here.

Doubled1980, all you have is a bunch of damaged coins. None are worth more than face value.

I'd like to gently push back on that statement. Common date circulated wheat cents are generally worth 3 or 4 cents and the '42 Mercury dime (or are there two of them?) is/are worth several times face.

OK Spence, I'll concede your point, particularly about the silver Mercury dime--or dimes?

I agree with the statements regarding one coin per thread. Otherwise it's frustrating to try to address individual coins. While I agree with Spence that a few of these are worth slightly more than face, but very little premium here. Also, in future posts, please remove your coins from plastic coverings. Thanks.

Merc dime is silver so it's worth around 2 bucks, the Wheat cent is worth a few cents, the rest are face value.

Nothing special here but a bunch of damaged coins.

"put back"? What does that mean?

If this has an obvious meaning, excuse my ignorance.

On your first coin:
Coins squeezed with another coin will show:
1. A mirrored set of devices. (Dies only create the normal ones, the transference from other coins will not be correct, but mirrored.

2. Also note both sides will show the full design across both sides of the coin (weakened) both will be in the correct rotation and visible.
3. The coins struck by the die that are not in a collar, will not show the rim, like a transferred image from another coin.

Note on this one, you can see where the step-down for the gutter is on one side of the coin, but the rim that we see on your coin, screams, that it was squeezed with another coin. Not on this one, the collar was not in place and was struck out of the collar.
4. Only one side will shown affected on an altered coin. If it were a mint error you would expect to see two sets of images:



This one is a double struck example rotated in the collar, thus you see to sets of strikes. (The first one is weakened by the second stronger strike:












So if the coins are altered, they a just cull coins now. But as mentioned, one coin is better. The confusion of dealing with many coins at once, is like being in a waiting room and being diagnost. How accurate would it be if the doctor gave only one diagnosis for the whole group? Each patient needs to be looked at to determine the issue. Thus the reason for a single coin per thread. If you have coins with the same issues, then only post one, then you will know what has happened to the rest that look like. We are here to instruct on what you have. So expect to hear more than you expect on your coins. But a damage coin is often just a face value coin. (unless it is a silver melt coin, then it will be worth more than face value)

CoopHome: What would you expect to see on a coin squeezed onto the surface of another coin? What should not be seen on a real double struck coin?

"put back" as to what I meant by put back is I have some coins that I really could use some thoughts on so "put back" means set aside
