Hello. Would this be some kind of UN membership coin? I can't find it on the internet and I downloaded 3 different coin identification apps and they all give me wildly different and wrong coins that aren't remotely similar. Please help and thank you.
Thank y ok u everyone. I apologize for the late reply. Had a family emergency but all good now. The weight is normal. 3.10g. I'm really glad I posted this. I was getting very frustrated trying to investigate but not finding much. Thanks again.
Hello all. Going through some rolls yesterday I found this interesting cent. It has 2 circular impressions on the obverse that have partly covered or erased( not sure of the right word to describe that) the middle of Liberty and the date. The BE in liberty is gone as well as the what I'm guessing is an 8 in the date. The bottom half of the 9 is also not visible, and the 6 at the end of the date is obscured. Part of IGWT is Lso missing or blurred on the bottom halves. Is this a weak strike of some kind? I haven't come across this before. Any help is appreciated as always.
Hello all. I have a 1969 D Roosevelt dime. It looks very much like a die adjustment/weak strike. Am I correct in that? Also can anyone fill me in on what gives coins that texture? Or point me in the direction of it. Thanks
Here is a 2013 D nickel. I am thinking it is PMD but went to weigh it and it comes in at 4.69. I believe that is well outside of tolerance. I am having trouble finding anything on this though so it makes me lean more to the PMD side but that weight bothers me. Any help is appreciated.
So I haven't come across this before. I was thinking strike through or misaligned die because the impression kind of look like part of letters but I'm not sure. I am having trouble finding anything to clarify what it is and how it happened. Any help is appreciated.
Over the last few weeks I came across these 3 quarters and tossed them aside for later review/posting/investigating. They are from the years 1989, 1994, and 2004(Texas quarter). They are slightly different shades of grey, ranging from dark grey to light grey/silver. They all have that pockmarked kind of lock to them. The older of the 2 have very faint to no reeding but can still see or partially see a clad layer. SO I don't think it I missing clad. MY next thought was annealing error but I don't think that is wright either. Leaning towards PMD but would hate to send it back without knowing. What do you all think? Thank you in advance.
Hello all, I got this 2022 P Maya Angelou quarter in a roll yesterday and was about to toss it back when I saw the something odd on the obverse. It was hard to get good pics but hopefully you can see the pooled metal on the right of "in God we trust". It looks like something with a pointed edge was struck into the back of Washington's head. I was thinking strike though with a foreign object or field restricted strike through? Am I way off? Please let me know if anyone can. I am hoping back on errorref.com to do some more investigating. Thank you in advance.
Thank you everyone. I was confusing die clash and strike through. I will give it a nice acetone bath today and get back to you. It is not raised just fyi which was one of the weird things that led me to believe it could be a stain. But I will give it a try just in case. Update soon.
I came across this quarter this morning with a weird anomaly on the obverse. It could be PMD but the reason I question that is because it seems to be behind the L and not over it. But it does look like it goes over the I so I really don't know and am having trouble finding something similar. I thought maybe die attrition but that doesn't seem right after looking into it. It I only on the obverse also. Reverse looks normal.
Hello all. Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I got some customer wrapped penny rolls and they are spitting out a lot of nice coins. One of them is this 2008 D Lincoln memorial penny. It looks like a strike through but kind of looks like a stain too. I haven't seen a strike through in my hand before so my experience with them is only what I have read and looked at online or in books. Any tips on the matter are greatly appreciated.
I know this post is older but I jumped over from a post of the same type of coin and you had left a link for this. Are these valuable at all ? Just for my own edification, I am most likely hanging on to this as I haven't seen it before. My dime looks almost identical to yours.
Sorry for late response. I got a new desk and misplaced the dime for a bit. But found it this morning. So to answer a few questions; - it weighs 2.30 grams - there is reeding Thank you everyone for the info. I am learning a ton. I have noticed that there were a lot of similar looking coins from the mid eighties (minus the filing) that I went through this weekend.
Can someone confirm or deny this is a broadstruck 1985 dime? I feel like there is more going one here, but I can't find much else. I feel like my researching skills are missing something. I check the usual sites(wexlers,variety vista,coppercoins) and try to study errorref.com and all they have there. Anyone suggest anything else? Back to this dime. Parts of the motto on reverse is missing from what I think is a broad strike. On the obverse, half of the 5 in the date is missing and the I and W in "in" and "we" are also missing from it.
Hello all, happy Monday. I have a 2002 p Louisiana quarter with what seems like a clad issue but it looks different from the clad issues I can find. The weight is 5.32 as well so it's well short of the usual weight. So I am not sure what is going on. Lastly the side is nearly solid copper looking. Improperly annealed maybe? I'm stumped. What do you all think?
This may be a no brainer. But I don't want to be the person that spent a valuable coin and piece of history lol. I have been able to get a lot of answers on my own but can't find much on this one. But please let me know if you can. Much appreciate.
