The annual ONA Convention & coin show, this year in Hamilton on Upper James St, is always a good time with lots of folks, many dealers with very good presentations and talks. Starts next Friday thru Sunday at the Courtyard Marriot. There will be a number of CCF members there, including me, who will be at the registration desk for Sat AM and, as always for the T.O. area shows, I'll be wearing red.

Could it be just crappy coat of varnish/lacquer that discolored?

Yep, machine or mechanical doubling. MD is called by both names. The die was loose in the keepers allowing a slight movement in the instant after the strike, as the die is rising and slightly smears the edges of impression. It creates what looks like a shadow and can affect one section of the planchet a little more than the others.

Personally, I don't think that it's die doubling either, but I'm sure not an expert on this stuff. I think that it's a combo of DDD and MD, as the above poster comments.

I think that a CNJ article would be very important and valid these days, using markers to prove that specimen dies just weren't used for special coins. Every year we have 20-30 threads asking whetther their coin is a circulated specimen coin or if they have a proof, prooflike, specimen or MS coin. You photography is outstanding.

I'd say XF-40. Be sure to take a good look at the 7, since there are some nice repunch doublings there.

Yep, that's a #5. We got Charlton to put that one, along with the #3, 4, and 9/6 when we did the Vicky variety section for the 2011 65th edition. Then Trends picked it up once Charlton and ICCS put them in. The coin has been recognized way back to Zoell as an R2b. Keep your eyes pealed whenever you see the huge D/C at the R in Regina as it grew large and split into large cracks running into Gratia and continuing back thru Regina. There's an R2c that has the same Obv that we also put into the 65th that it a nice repunch, but not like the #5.

Zoell's "editions" changed, via content, from when he started to where he ended in the 60's. At first, he had both minor and major varieties in one book. I think with the 3rd or 4th editions, he had split the major and minor anomalies and assigned new, different Zoell #'s. Once that happened, the "major" varieties took off much faster than the minor errors. A "major" variety was a coin that was changed by the mint, with good palanchets, good undamaged dies, proper pressure, and good machinery & adjustments. Yours, with a die chip or DD is an error, not a variety.

Would It Be Worthwhile Getting This 1928 Cent Graded?

No, don't send it to a tpg. Using Trends prices, you would be paying 10 times the cost of what the coin will ever be worth. To justify a TPG cert, you really need to have the coin worth (ability to sell) over $100, maybe $150-$200 if the coin isn't at least a 60. Yours is far short of that. I think that your coin, from the distant photo, to be VF-30 - XF-40 and worth probably less than $5

I've been furnishing mine to a friend that sells them on his Facebook coin site. They sell very very well, even the common ones. And there are NO 1859's that have a full vine.

Where are you located? BTW, old plastic prescript pill bottles work great for many denominations and are really nice for separating out specific dates or "hard to finds". You have a chore ahead of you. Folger's cans are heavy when full, aren't they?

I think that they misplaced the decimal point .... maybe $12.50? Why would they be so high, as 200 million were minted?

There was a thread on exactly the same topic with great pics on another coin site, but I forget which one.

Try on this CaC forum, but the one that I saw a few weeks/months ago dealt with single-sided ones.
