I was hoping someone may shine some insite into this nickel. I have only recently restarted my grandfather's coin collection that I used to help him with as a kid...so I happened to notice this coin and it looked a little odd, so here's to those little oddities...thanks for any help

Lincoln on the obverse of a nickel is definitely uncommon. Otherwise it looks like your average worn-die, circulated nickel. What error are you seeing?

Hahaha...sorry about the penny, I thought I had selected another pic, so I'll remove it...some of the lettering on the reverse of the nickel looks like they were perhaps doubled...totally unsure, but yeah, the circulation wear is apparent without the zooming, but the camera flash may have hindered some of the visuals...I'll see if I can get some cleaner shots...I have a coin scope for the phone coming in the mail soon...until then,I'll try and get something better to look at

Yes, lots of sloppy looking nickels out there. When I first got a scope it took me awhile to get pics without glare. Try using either natural light or shine artificial light through a piece of paper so the light is scattered. And, welcome to the group.

Thanks Nick...and I'll give that a try with the lighting sometime tomorrow during lunch break maybe, but at least by dinner tomorrow evening, hopefully it will help give a better look at the reverse

@meth, first welcome to CCF. Second, I do see what appears to be a little die deterioration doubling on some of the letters, such as R and I of AMERICA. As @nick10 pointed out, glare from multiple light sources can also make it look like there is doubling.

Thanks for the welcome guys, and thank you for all this information on the differences to look for in errors...let me ask you guys a question...ever had your's or another bank just tell you "no, we dont do any change orders, only one branch deals with the paper rolls"? For doing any kind of roll hunting...any particular denomination that tends to yield better results? ...I know, that was two questions...sorry guys!

Hahaha @Coinfrog...would save you guys a ton of time if they just put that at the beginning before anyone even types a post...but my luck...there actually is something saying something similar and such, but I, being too impatient, decided to read over things and stare straight ahead with that glazed over look in my eyes...but thanks all the same everyone!

Since it costs banks to supply coinage I make coin requests only after doing another transaction so that the teller is reminded I'm a customer. I've never requested more than one box per visit.

After having searched a number of boxes the boxes started feeling like too much work so now I ask for just a few rolls. If you find a bank that's helpful to you, bring a small gift to the tellers during holiday season, something they all can share like a nice box of food or candy or similar. Since few people do that the tellers will remember you fondly during the following year, and might save you interesting coins they see come in. Be polite and friendly and you'll be rewarded.

As for denomination, lots of people search halves for 1970 and earlier coins with silver. That supply of silver is diminishing due to those efforts so you won't find as much silver as you would have 10 years ago.

If you like finding older coins, nickels are your best bet. You can even assemble a full set of Jeffersons from 1938 to present, though I'd estimate it will take you upwards of 100 boxes (200,000 coins) for all the key dates. After such an undertaking you will be able to correctly guess the date, within 1 year, of a nickel simply by looking at its reverse.

Quarters will net you low mintage coins but with so many designs during the past 20 years it's tough to develop the skill to quickly spot unusual examples.

I'd say choose the denomination that seems like most fun to you. You can always switch to a different one during the next bank visit.

@nick...you need a new best friend? Haha...thank you again for all the insights and advice on how to approach starting my grandpa's coin collection again, now that he's gone, I'll do what I can to take over for him...I do have a lot yet to go through, I have a small pail filled with nothing but the wheats that I haven't even pulled a single penny to check yet...but thanks again...all the help has been very greatly appreciated
