Hi all and thanks in advanced,
My first post turned out to be #5 on the "dirty dozen" list.
I'm hoping this will make it 1 for 1

If you think you have a error coin, please tell us specifically what you think your error is . Otherwise we have to guess, and we're bad guessers. I see a top filled 9 which most likely a captured die chip. is this what you're trying to show us? Please next time always show us the entire coin, both sides, as well as close ups.

I see a Die Chip in the 9 but I don't see any error.
Please be more specific.

Agree, I'm seeing a die chip in the 9.. Wonder what the reverse looks like? I'm curious because Wheat cent reverses are known for die cracks and die chips,

with die chip. Having full & in focus pics allows others to fully examine and look for specific makers left by the die. Look at http://www.traildies.com/ to see what this means.

Sorry for my mistakes and thanks for y'all's patience. So a Die Chip is nothing special? Asking cause I have no idea, just started getting into coins.

No, they are quit common and are considered part of the minting process, not an error.

Although as mentioned they are not a Die event error but there are some examples that do carry a premium above the face value such as those known as BIE which it is a vertical die chip positioned in between the B and E of the word LIBERTY.




And a more common ones like yours:

Thanks and the way I'm looking at it is my first coin I posted was altered in a vise and this coin, even though not an error, maybe this was the coin that chipped the die

Allow my incorrect statement to be chualked up to learning. In any case, understanding this aspect does no harm. At least to this engineering mind that thrives on details.
Glad you called that out John LOL

Die chips are a dime a dozen, and can be found on almost every coin.


True that but, those are some big honkin' die chips!

to the CCF and As stated above die chips are just an event that happens to the die throughout it's life. If you like them save them. Collect what you want.
