Did you collectors see the notice from J. C. Stevens that he is not accepting submissions until Fall of 2023 while he is relocating? I saw it as a note on his 'Attributions Guide on What to Do" .

Silviosi, I was only questioning why the chipped ends of Monticello became much more common after the 2006 Franki obverse redesign and the President was moved off-center.

Rob0411, thanks for the app suggestion, but that looks like an Apple Iphone app while I'm using an Android phone for the shots and the MS photo editing capability. I've also tried using the Irfanview program that COC listed, unsuccessfully. I'll work it out eventually, whether I should start with a macro image or magnified standard photo, then what happens to the pixel quantity when resizing to the different COC size requirements, etc. Maybe an old dog can learn new tricks.

Silviosi, thanks for your answer. So the modern Jeff nickel just has an unfortunate design.

Rob0411, I have a similar problem finding Denver coins on the East Coast, particularly since the pandemic seemed to tighten nationwide circulation. As for markers, the first coin had none while the later sample had a small cud from the first T in States to the rim. I tried all weekend to submit images to Cuds, but my photo editing experience failed 3 entries. The close-ups were "unusable, pixelated and out of focus". But I'll keep sending pics till I badger him into submission or I get a cease and desist order.

Silviosi, is the Reverse up positioning also used in Jefferson Nickel stamping? They have a chipping problem on the reverse at the edge walls of the Monument building. I have a whole tube of them with chips.

Spence, I am definitely keeping them together. Once I found the first example years ago, I had only been closely checking the 2015 coins, but I realize from the COC lists that spikes can happen any production year.

Thank you all for your replies and encouragement.

KBB, I probably search only 3 to 4 thousand cents in a full year, over all the 100 + production years of Lincolns (there are usually at least one Canadian in there). So the odds are indeed pretty slim.

Some years ago, I had found a nice example of a 2015 P Lincoln cent spiked head and rescued it from circulation. The crack runs virtually in a straight line from above the ear to just nipping the lead arm of the W to the rim. I did not recognize an exact match to any of the 55 SKH varieties listed on the COC site. Last month, searching a coin roll, I found a second, more circulated coin with exact same crack.
The Phila mint made almost 4.7 billion cents in 2015, what are the odds that 2 coins from the same damaged die would find their way to the same person years apart? This fact amazes me.

I have seen those radial marks on the reverse made by a machine shop surface grinder.

I found a beehive example similar to the one posted by Errers & Varieties last October. Mine is smaller and on the left side Upper roof while E&V's is on the right side Lower roof.
There also is a crack from my Lower roof toward the left edge.

I really expected someone on this forum to reveal they were the person turning in all these 1981s.

It sounds to me like Humble thought he found a Wounded Eagle Sac.
That link from John1 doesn't mention that variety.

Thanks for the replies. I'll keep the nicest example for my album and rewrap the rest.
I'll put them away simply for the copper value.

Coin roll hunting at my local bank, apparently another customer turned in a hoard of 1981 LMCs from Ebay or somewhere. Entire hand-wrapped rolls of uncirculated 1981 cents, not pristine and brilliant, but also not beat up from 38 years of handling. Is anyone aware of errors or varieties I should search for this particular year with hundreds of candidates to inspect?

Came across this 2018P Jeff nickel with a similar condition to a post by Wendell of a 2017P coin. Commentors pretty much agreed on die chips for the cause. Wendell had a clump on the left side of the building. This year it has moved to the right side. My left side has a minor shadow.

Has the Forum discussed the experimental rinse "error" being shown by some You-Tubers ?
It results in a dull coppery finish unlike the normal brilliant gold appearance.
