Hi fellow coin collectors. I have been collecting for a few months now and really enjoying it. I have a question. I have searched on eBay and google and also various websites with no prevail. I am wondering on how I find a value of a coin. I have a 1988 5 cent coin, with a miss strike and unable to find any information.
I have been trying to upload the photos I have taken, but it is not working, even after using the image optimizer

@ACH, first welcome to CCF. Second, here is a link to the instructions for uploading pics:

I look forward to seeing you post your coin(s).

If you are using the CCF Optimizer, once you select the pic(s) to optimize, it will show the file size above the image. It must be under 300kb to upload to a post. After you've adjusted the size and/or image quality to get it under 300kb, select "Download" and then select the green down arrow(s) that appear next to the image(s). After you've downloaded the pic(s) to your computer or other device, when you create a post select the "Upload Image" link below the text box and choose the pic you want to add to your post (from your device's storage location) and then select "Upload Image to (username)'s Post". You have to upload pics one at a time.

After that and typing whatever text, click on "Preview" to make sure everything looks right. If so, close that window and "Post Reply".

I hope that's right and helps.

Thank you for helping me on how to post photos. Here are the 2 photos I have taken. They may not be the best photo, and I do apologize, as it was taken on a tablet.

to the forum!

Here'a a cropped version of your coin. I imagine what your question is the edge? It looks to be damaged. It possibly could be a straight clip planchet but the correct effects aren't showing. It would show a certain weakness on points of the coin.




By looking again, I do believe it is a straight edge clip. The imprint of the die forced that rim edge to expand outward on the one side, not quite sure why, pressure or die alignment problem?
