Re: Looking for Help on 'Total Population Strikes'

I can't imagine this would be anything other than simple averages. Today, the US Mint changes out dies every six hours while making 12 coins per second. The bins are inspected about every 15 minutes and if an error is found, the entire bin and dies are destroyed. Going back to the other end, dies ma...

Re: Shanghai China..before it was communist???

This 10 dollar bill was printed for the Central Bank of China by the American Bank Note Company (small text on reverse, under Shangh'ai) as the 1928 version. In excellent shape, you can get them for about $5. On the back is a portrait of Sun Yat-sen (1866-1925) first president and founding father of...

Re: Small planchet

Re: 1958-D Lincoln cents

Since these are in plastic rolls, you can assume that they have been looked at before by someone separating them by date and mint. Unless graded by a TPG, with a grade of MS-67 RD, or above, they will only be worth a few cents each. Most will never get this grade, so you'd be wasting a lot of money ...

Re: 1976 D mint penny error???

The '6' is deformed because it was once crimped in a coin rolling machine. This would be considered damage, which occurred after it left the mint. The 'D' is filled due to a tiny break in the die where the center of the 'D' partially broke off. It's called a die chip and add no value to the coin as ...

Re: Bicentennial Quarter - Blemished

Welcome!
Nor sure if the "shiny" area is raised, or just cleaner. Up-close it gets pretty blurry. If it is a dome-like indent, then its damage.
