I have some extra time to go thru my error collection and found this.
Im not new to error coins been collecting for 10 years or so.
This one has me stumped. As there is a 1957 d penny DDO is this a mint mistake or a mint error?

Your question is unclear. Fewer pics, please, but much sharper, shown right-side up. Be specific about what you see.

I don't know what a shaken die error is, but I think the OP is showing lots of doubling (tripling, etc) of the legends.
I am also seeing off center, and weak details despite what appears to be very little wear and some luster.

So I think the implicit question is "what happened during the striking of this coin/?"

I think I will learn a lot by watching the responses

Sorry didnt ask what the question is.
What happened to this coin when it was struck?
It looks like waves as if the die got jammed up and rattled in the dies?
If that's possible?
Fyi the download on the pics. Had to change it to 300kb and rotate to get the details.
Thanks you and glad to be here.

I also have 6 more errors that are not in books or online.

Its possible but unlikely. Acid removed metal . It doesn't creating the die to repeated multiple times. Look at the wheat leaves. They move up and over the rim.
Still weights 3 grams and it is the correct size.
Its been in a box for 8 years so it would have
Corroded like your cables on battery. It still has some ms finnish also.
Thank you for feedback

I agree with Coinfrog, next time way fewer photos, please, and they need to have the correct orientation so we can see them without cranking our necks, and please, much sharper images.

I'm interested to see what coop has to say about this coin.
meanwhile,
to the CCF! Glad to have you aboard!

Hard to tell from the images but there is some damage to the top of TRUST, probably from a coin wrapping machine. It looks like the tops of the letters were scraped off.

Acid can make a coin look exactly like this. Sounds like you think this coin was struck multiple times, I can assure you it is not. Even DDOs are not struck multiple times.

This doesn't match the reference as a acid dipped coin.
More like this one. I do have a quarter like this but its stuck only once.

Not sure about the acid diagnosis. Error-Ref.com lists the criteria for diagnosing acid exposure as:

The diagnostics of an acid damaged coin include:

1. A diameter smaller than normal.

2. Perfect centering of the design.

3. Uniformly mushy design on both faces.

4. Thin or absent design rim.

5. Lack of metal flow in design elements bordering the coin's edge.

The surface may or may not show an unusual texture.


Agree that there is PMD to the obverse from WE through TRUST.

The photos are just not clear enough, especially of the reverse, to reach any conclusions. I would really like to see better photos of EPU and the area around ONE CENT.

Well just got a email from John Wexler!
He wants me to send in the coin for a closer look.
Nice!
Thanks John!!

I will let you know what his findings are.

Later tonight I will post another weird error or PMD?
