Hi Gang,

Found this hunting in my randoms silver that my grandfather gave me years ago. Looks like a sting "Mint Error" and one of the most interesting strikes I've come across.

Please give feedback and if this brings a premium.

That's pretty cool. I'm sure someone would pay a premium for it, but I don't know how much.

If you have 100% pure acetone I would give it a quick dip and then put it in a 2x2 that fits a quarter so you can see the edge.

Will do John1...thanks.

What would you think a premium would be on such a mint error?

Hhmmm, pretty cool.I tend to run across error coins a bit lately. Insofar as a premium is concerned. I would venture that between ten and fifty percent of the coins graded value would be close to the mark. An obsessed collector may pay several times that. It all depends on how bad they want it. One of the shops I used to frequent sold damaged Mercuries like that for five bucks, especially the 1944. My question would be, when did the crack occur ? In the milling process ? Or from inordinate pressure in the chamber ? Knowing the answer to such questions should certainly increase any potential premium.
All the best.

Thank you Saint Stephen, I believe it is a cracked plainchant and it happened before the strike due the weakness in the "Y" in liberty. Very possible to have happened during.

Nice circulated error, most would think that it is post mint damage, lack of quality control during the war time era caused many error during production.

During the rolling of the ingot into strip. If the ingot is improperly annealed or contains impurities it can become brittle. It then develops cracks at the edges of the strip. The crack extended into the area this blank was punched from.
