I have a feeling after looking at the post of the person's quarter, you guys are going to say after mint damage. But, I thought I'd shoot it out here anyway, and thank everyone for such a lovely forum. This won't be the last one, I'm sure :)

Anyway what I have is a very messed up 1980 Jefferson nickel. The letters are wonky there looks to be die cast errors and lamination errors, but I could be just totally missing it. I'm wanting to make a business with coin collecting for multiple reasons.. I love it, and I need money LOL Truth, but I also want an honest business so I know I need to be as accurate as possible. Thanks for you help in advance and looking forward to what you all have to say.

I do not have a scale yet working on it, I know I need one. So, I did not weigh it to see if its on the right planchet. Thanks again!

It's just a lot of Post Mint Damage. Lots of gouges, scratches and contact marks, but all came long after the coin was struck. Nothing in the minting process could have caused this.

Also, you used the term "cast" in your description. Coin in the US are die struck. A cast coin is an entirely different process, so it wouldn't apply here.

Thank you Yokozuna for the welcome and reply. Also, thanks for helping me with the terminology. I'm wondering now where I picked up the term die cast LOL.. but now I can be conscious of not using that term..

Thanks again,
Sara

. Looks like what is called a "parking lot" coin. PMD. Also, a few too many photos.

Thanks for the feedback, and sorry I'll limit the photos next time. I also noticed the sub category when it was too late as well :( But thanks for the warm welcome.

Sara,

to the community! While your first coin might be post mint damage, you have come to the right place to learn about coins, collecting coins and starting your own business. I found several topics for people who are thinking about starting their own business by using the search box on this page. Here's one of the ones I found.

There is a lot to learn. Hope this helps.

Just FYI, way too many pics. One full obverse and one full reverse shot would've been fine.

No disrespect intended, but if you were unable to figure what happened to that coin, you're not ready to start a coin business. Starting a business without a good knowledge of its field is a recipe for lost time and money, and unhappy customers. If you're serious about such an endeavor, first spend a few years studying and learning.

Sara, first,

If you are going to make a business out of collecting coins, you need to take the process slow and ask as many questions as you have. As TNG pointed out, knowing the minting process is a critical part of the business. If I was just starting in numismatics, I would specialize in one denomination of one country's coin. The easy one is the U.S. cent. It's easy to "get your feet wet" by going to your bank as buying a box or two of cents (notice I didn't say "pennies") and start the long process of looking through the rolls. Keep what you find interesting (they only cost you a cent each) then return the rest for even more boxes/rolls.

Realise not every coin is an error coin, and that true errors are very rare. Photograph what you have questions about ask us then post your queries here and we'll be happy to help. Buy yourself the Red Book of US coins as that will help too. Spend time searching on error types in the top left corner of every page here on CCF. There is a lot to learn and you have come to the right place!

Sara, welcome to the family.
