Hi all,

Am Wondering if the crack through Monticello building is mint error worthy of collectors interest ? And also wondering what type of error it is ? Hoping to pick your brain on this topic

It came directly out of unopened 1975 proof set

Better photographs would be needed to help you. Full photos of both sides and closeups of areas of interest, but please no screen shots.

to the CCF!

Even it is were a die crack, it doesn't have a premium for it. On the window, it looks like a coin scratch. (incuse mark)

They didn't make coins very well at San Francisco from about the late 1960's to the mid 1970's. Looks like shoddy work on changing out dies.

S.F. also had a group of employees purposefully making errors to sell. The coins were secreted out of the Mint in various ways, including in the oil pans of autos.

How'd they get them past security before exiting the building and then into the parking lot where they could crawl under their car, remove the 14-26 bolts, drop their oil pan, hide the coins, reinstall the oil pan and then refill engine with oil and then successfully leave the premises?
