I guess this is the section I need to be in if not can you move it please I didnt buy these rather found them paid face value some are just not very appealing not sure yet youll be seeing them just as me when I upload them .... have fun gl hunting.










The next ones I found today as well I think I like the 71 the most out of this lot can anyone estimate the grade on it being a weak strike or and off center (no or very little L)








Thanks for all the help.

The last 2 cents (53 S and 71 D)- I would hang onto.
Everything else are spenders. .. never be worth more than face...

It appears to be a struck-through grease error - a case where grease has filled the "L" recessed area of the die and thus prevented its details from being realized on the struck coin.

Struck-through-grease errors are very common, and do not tend to add much value to a coin when the filled/missing area is minor (such as on your Lincoln cent). I've seen minor greased-filled cents being offer for $1.00 at coin shows.

In contrast, if the grease-filled area caused Lincoln's portrait to go mostly missing, you'd have something of real value!

So I searched around a little more and that coin is q known variety ...it went to auction at ms 65 red n brought 180$ ....personally I think mine looks better then the one thats graded. Here is the registry # n header :



Let me know what ya think also I see alot of these guys posting quarters and other denominations with mint errors like on those quarters n seems they arent even that great. Whats the differnce in theirs being worth money and mine being not?

If someone paid $180. for that coin they paid $179.99 too much. It is a common over polished die. Your dime and quarter spent some time on a parking lot. They are just damaged. Stick around on this site and do some searching. You will learn what to look for, and what to throw back. Good luck. I will refer you to Coops post "damaged coins are not errors" in the error forum. He tells it better than anyone.

Whenever you have a indentation the metal has to go somewhere, it doesn't just disappear.

Before even considering the matter of the mint mark and what is possible, what do you see when comparing your dollar to the pictured coins?

It really doesn't take any more time to post a new topic than it does to add a new item to an old post. It will get more attention and better replies.

It's difficult to comment on a multi-coin post without having to go back and try to figure out what coin each comment is about.
