Hi all,

I just stumbled across a coin I pulled out of circulation 30ish years ago when I was a kid. A google search makes me think it is a version of a lamination error. I am uploading photos, but a quick description is that the obverse has what looks like a crack running through it. In a couple places there are pits in the crack and in one place it looks like the outer material was folded over onto the coin. The crack doesn't show at all on the reverse.

Take a look at the pictures. I am mainly curious if there is any type of a premium on it. I am guessing not, since it is not a very attractive error . . . and the coin is G-4 at best.

Thanks for the help!

A lamination for sure - but no premium of any significance, I'm betting.

Larger and sharper photos would help us assess it, but it does look like a lamination error. There might be a small premium on it being a mint error (but none if it's just damage). Check sold prices on eBay to get a feel for values.

Thanks for the feedback.

Any suggestions on how to pull off the larger/sharper images using a camera on a phone?

I was struggling to not create a shadow or a glare. I was pretty happy with the obverse, but the reverse was terrible.

Are there settings that work better for coins?

to CCF. First thing is to remove it from the 2x2 holder.Set camera to macro and maybe use a hand held light instead of onboard light.You can also buy pretty cheaply, a clip on magnifier for a phone.
