Hello everyone I have a BUNCH of cool coins but this is especially exciting because this is the first ever error that I have found myself!



Now correct me if I'm wrong but there is all sorts of errors on this coin right? Any idea of value?

Difficult to see with the poor images but, looks like Post Mint Damage to me, not an error.

Looks like it spent sometime in the coin torture chamber. (also know as the garage at an evil hand torturing your coin. When he figured out it was not a believable error, what do you do with it? You spend it. An you found it. (Be glad you didn't buy it)

To CCF! I'm sorry, but that's not a mint error. Just the result of Post Strike Damage ( PSD). It's a Vice Job. Worth face value. http://www.error-ref.com/squeeze-jo...-garage-job/

As the poster above said, this is whats called a "vice job". This happens when two coins are placed on top of each other under high pressure, such as in a vice. Unfortunately it falls under the category of "post strike damage", that is a coin that has been damaged after it was made by the mint. As such, it is only worth face value.
