I thought it may be interesting to see if anyone has any filler coins in their collection that have been abused or badly damaged.
Here's a coin that resides in my collection for now.
They weren't happy with just holing this one but they also double stamped it W.P. Keith.
Anyone else with something similar?

Cheers, Bill

Here's an 1882-H large cent I've had in my collection for a while.

I actually got this coin in change when I was nine years old! The 1950 penny is one of the key dates of the British pre-decimal bronze penny series, with a mintage of just 240,000. This coin was in my album for 13 years until I could afford a better specimen!

Every collector must have had some at one time. I still have a couple. This one is probably from 2000-2005 and it had to be less than $20.

I have this 1871 and an AG-3. Embarrassing, I really need to upgrade.

This one would have considerable value, without the hole... I sold it a few years ago for like 1/10th of the value an undamaged coin would have.

Dipped in the wrong stuff, but it has the die clash on the reverse and repunched letters in Gratia Regina. Couldn't go wrong at $3.
