. Is there any thing interesting in them?
You probably have felt this way in the past. Or if you are younger, this maybe something you've not seen yet. It is one of the nicest designs for a small Lady Liberty coin. One of my favorites to find as a child. Now they are probably mostly melted down or sold more for silver prices. But there are a few things that you may not have heard about on this series.
In what ever coin grade you set as a goal for your collection, the 1916-D is probably worth more than the rest of the collection put together.
So if you are going to collect this series, buy the most expensive one first. That way the price doesn't keep going up on you. But to help you appreciate the extra effort they design for the first year is something to behold.
There are some interesting coins struck during this time period. One of them was the doubled die with the two different dates for the dimes. Both Philadelphia and Denver.
Keeping in mind the mint mark locations for confirming a unknown coin, is able to be done with the 1942/1-D.
It helps confirm the real coins. People create fakes of these.
Starting off with 1916, that was an important year for coin design. The design has more detail that year, than any of the others following it.
The reverses seem pretty much the same, just the obverse design was so nice on the 1916 design.
But there are other things to note on this series. Did you know it had the most inverted Ball serif mint marks that were RPMs? I think there were 5 different dies that were affected and 4 of them are RPMs.
But have you figured out yet how to spot an inverted Ball Serif mint mark? Lets see. Take a look at the next image. Can you spot the one that is different?
Have you spotted the inverted one? There is only one that is normal.
So don't forget to look for these on this series.
Also they have on the reverse of the coin a collectable called split bands to look for on this series. Split bands what is that?
It is on the torch on the rear. The torch has three areas where the bands can be seen. The upper and lower ones just give you an idea of what to look for. The center band is the one to check for to see the split:
Well I'm sure I forgot something. But with so many images you sometimes for get to put them all in. I'll try to add more if I find something else. Hope you enjoy this thread.*** Moved by Staff moved to a more appropriate forum. ***
