Going through some pictures of coins I have and came across this 1956 that looks like an overdate. I have to pull this one out and get full obverse reverse pics. I recently saw something similar but can't remember the date. Has anyone seen this before? Thanks for any comments or info

In what year did over dates stop?

The www says that 1909 was the last year that over date errors were possible for US minted coins.

Good question but I have no idea when they stopped. I'm pretty sure it was before this date if you ask the mint. I think it's an older practice from before the turn of the century. Could this be one? I'm no expert but that's what it looks like to me

Does not look like an over date . I'm going to venture out and say a struck through .

Struck-through makes sense. Not an overdate.

Thanks coinfrog. Struck through makes sense. Not much evidence to say otherwise

Well there are some doubled dies they call over dates:
Mercury dime 1942 over 1



(I call these doubled dies, but other insist on calling them over dates but were the wrong hubs used for a different year that was once already though the hub process from the previous years hub. Actually an over date was when they punched the devices on a different year die to re-use the dies. (18th Century thing that ended in 1909 on the Indian Head cent)
1918-D over 7 Buffalo nickel:

1918 over 7 Standing Liberty:



1943 over 2 Jefferson nickel:


There are probably more, but these are the ones off the top of my head.

Thanks coop. The ghosting I was looking at on the nine is nowhere near as strong as those examples

If it is incuse (sunk into the field) it could be damage. If it is raised, then it maybe a die gouge. But no premium for these. Note the digits are showing incuse marks, so it is a damaged coin.

Thanks coop. It is raised. It could be a die gouge but the only reason I thought overdate is because the 956 line up and the ghost nine has the bottom it half way up between the 1 and 9. Wasn't expecting a major error but had to ask

If you do an overlay it might help you see if the second 956 are really the same size and spacing.
Any chance you can post an image of the full obverse and reverse?

ps. Not likely, but if it were real I think this would be considered a DDO or possibly a counter clash since these would require two separate obverse elements on the obverse face (from the die).

Thanks petespockets55. I'm not familiar with how to do overlays. Plus I still need to locate the coin. I do have it. Will post full obverse and reverse soon.
