Okay so apparently I guess I just don't know what I am doing and I'm getting very very discouraged about this stuff. I really really have a fun time going through each and every coin individually and studying it like I do. But honestly yall, I ain't got not a clue what I'm studying or looking for apparently! Helpppp...

Go to varietyvista.com or doubleddies.com. Those are two very good sites to see the actual doubled dies. errorref.com is also most informative.

Tootie92 to the CCF!

best question every day and twice on Sunday!

identifying doubled dies, varieties, errors,... check out this website http://www.error-ref.com/

then use these websites to attribute/compare your coins:
https://www.doubleddie.com/
http://www.varietyvista.com/
https://coppercoins.com/
http://www.crdievarieties.com/doku.php

other website:
http://www.lincolncentresource.com/


but if you cant figure it out, post pictures here at CCF or store in a tube for later when you acquire more knowledge.

thanks and good luck Coin Roll Hunting!

Both of the above suggestions are excellent. I would also advocate for you spending a few hours to go over the last 50 or 100 threads in the US modern variety and error coins section (this one that you are on right now) to learn from what others have posted. There is a steep learning curve, but we are in this together!

All of the above are excellent suggestions. It does take a lot of work learning what errors look like, and it takes looking at a lot of coins to find them. I think one mistake new people make is realising not every coin is an error coin, and some get upset not understanding that fact. Error coins ARE out there; educate yourself what they look like from the websites listed about and learning from the glossary of error coins here on CCF and search for examples in the search box found on the top left side here on CCF.

As you find possible error coins, share them with us here, but please articulate what you have and why you believe it is an error coin. When we are presented with coins and the poster simply asks "What kind of error is this" we have to guess and that's not helpful to anyone. Do your best to photograph your error close-up, and please please give us overall photos of the coin, both sides (some coins have markers to verify certain errors) The best images are direct coin to camera photos (please no shots of your computer screen). Don't be afraid to ask questions... that's how we all learn. Bonne chance!
