SPP, DBM and others
Are you guys suggesting that the coin itself is fake? Or that only the alterations on both sides are PMD
I might interpret SPP's comment incorrectly. If so, I am sorry.
If you guys tell me the quarter is a Fake, MM might have mail coming.
I was never, and never will be seriously interested in the mechanical process of how coins become coins, or how errors become honest errors.
I truly know very little about the process, nothing beyond the basics. I collect Canadian coins since 1967 because I like the coins and history aspect of some. I do not really care about the process how they became coins and therefore I do usually not recognize PMD
coins. However, I am guessing that there are some other members who would surely also like to know the reasons for some coins being designated with a PMD
is not always obvious to everyone and also perhaps not always correct. (I bet some members do not even know what PMD
Hence, a plausible, easy to understand explanation as to why it is PMD
, would surely be welcomed and appreciated by many members. It might be a good learning idea.
This subject quarter will most likely be released into the wild and we will see if it surfaces somewhere.
Perhaps it will become the subject of another post by another member, or become an eBay listing when some "lucky" finder might try to sell it as an error coin. Who knows?
