I have 90 Sacagawea dollars I'm going through and found this one and wonder if it's considered a wounded eagle?

Not a wounded eagle, looks more like damage.

Sorry I can't get it turned correctly. I'm still learning this site.

The coin of course has had better days and I do not know what to use to clean it up. These coins came from my mom that was tucked away in the closet for a bit LOL.

Your Sacagawea dollar has taken a hit on the Eagle's wing and is not even close to the positioning of the 2000-P variety. Your Dollar has an incuse depression in the the wing (or in other words basically a dent). The area affected on the Wounded Eagle variety is raised from the surface of the coin. Here is a pic that shows you what to look for on this variety. Hope this helps.

Never ever clean your coins. Many times you'll do more harm than good.

Thanks for all the info. Yeah I did compare to the ones I've seen on other pages but didn't know if there was a different version of the error.

Yeah I don't clean either and wouldn't know what with without making issues so I tend to just let em ride with the junk that is on them. I'll throw this one back in the pit with the other 89 :).

Thanks everyone!

The "So Called" arrow is raised not incuse:

Think a second like a die?


To make a coin, the dies design is the opposite that a coin is. Areas raised on the coin will incuse on the die. The outside edge of the die are where the fields are. So in order to create this on the die to show on the coins, the die was damaged on that area of the design. So the sub devices were altered. This could not be polished off the die without removing a lot of the fields and probably was not noticed at the time.
