I would love to ask you some questions about your passion, counter struck coins.


@Vindex .... I'd gladly exchange info with you on the topic of counterstamps. I just tried to PM you, but your mail setting is shut off. I believe that you can adjust the setting from your profile.

Nice save! Looky here. https://www.ebay.com/itm/332377311517

Congratulations on a great find/save.
This one Tunnioc posted the link to has the same weakness to OF AMERICA on the reverse as yours.

Can you get your friend to weigh the coin before he sends it off? That will save a two-month wait for the results.

Hey Petespockets55, I linked to a 1919 in a previous post that weighs 3.2 (circulated). Slightly overweight as Mike Diamond says. If that helps.
Best Find - 1976 D WQ DDO-001 http://goccf.com/t/356041

Interesting find - 1947 S over inverted S http://goccf.com/t/368005

Thanks CoinHi. (Vindex shared some great info by the way.)
From my search, I found 3 that might apply. OP's coin had weight and % that were different than the official specs from the mint.

(All 3 were listed as 75% copper and 25% Nickel with a weight of 3.0 grams)
Argentina- 1919 & 1920 10 Centavo
Columbia- 1920 2 centavo
Peru - 1918, 5 Centavo (date is a stretch but plausible)

I'll give my buddy a call tomorrow to see if he can weigh it.

Thanks Exoguy.

It probably weighed a little more when minted. Might indicate a rolled thick planchet stock (slightly)?

Just checking in .... I sent the 1920 CN cent to a dealer buddy in NY. He's soon to be getting a large group of pieces off to NGC.

Can anyone explain to me why this post on a hundred year old coin was moved to this "modern" error coin category, and the below post on a 1958 Lincoln error has remained under classic errors for over two weeks? Just askin' ....

It only stayed there because no one noticed or took the time to report it. All Lincoln Cents belong in modern.

Well we're certainly not going to put half the Lincolns in one forum and the other half in another.

It surprised me, because my post was moved quite fast, whereas the 1958 coin post remained for over two weeks.
