Greetings -

I hope this isn't a problem but I'm uploading Two Cents, same year and mint, here as I've finally been going through quite a collection I've accumulated. Also, I've been making a habit of putting coins I think are very nice or with possible errors in coin flips to keep track of them, so hope the pics aren't too terrible quality.

Anyways, here are two 1944 D pennies that I think have lamination errors but would like some outside input.

Thank you for your time.

Penny #1




Penny #2

Laminations for sure. These are not errors, just planchet flaws.

Nice LAMS. Best to take pics of the coins before putting them in 2x2's. Also looks like they need an 100% pure acetone bath.

Finally, I found a true error/flaw!

And @John1, for sure. I've read up on acetone and seen a few videos on how to do it. I'm just a bit apprehensive as I don't want to accidentally damage the coin somehow.

Ok.@Meztido:

1. First coin seem to me to be struck with an exfoliation part of other coin.
2. Second coin show that was hit on the pointed part by you and due to the alloy and age exfoliate. Also this coin show carbon deposits on the date. To take out those carbon points I will try first methyl alcohol or white alcohol. The acetone act more with polymeric materials.

Acetone will not help the first coin, which shows severe ED and has no value to a collector, I'm guessing.

One more issue to check for is the ever popular D/S over mintmark. Indeed, those are lamination issues there, kinda cool, all of them are unique.

Both worth saving in 2x2s I agree.
