Re: Strange nickel

My apologies aunty. I should have stuck to asking you for more info instead of making unfounded suggestions. Pahl1 and Daniel are the experienced professionals. As they both said there are other ways for a coin to be altered after it leaves the mint (by very bored individuals). Look up chemically a...

Re: 1959 d lincoln memorial error

Welcome but unfortunately it is too blurry with these images.
Can you take some clearer ones? And include an image of the reverse.

Re: Strange nickel

Thank you for the images. :thumbsup: They help a lot and are very interesting. Is the nickel in question a 1964. It definitely has circulation wear, with nicks and dings around the perimeter. Others here are much more knowledgeable than myself, so hopefully they will correct any errors in my reply....

Re: Strange nickel

Welcome to the forum.
Can you please include some images of the front, reverse and maybe even the edge showing how thin it is (maybe next to a Lincoln cent?)

Re: 1982 No P roosevelt dime (FS-10-1982-501)

Thanks Paul for those comparison images. It is interesting that CONECA uses the same variety number for both the weak and strong strike but the FS# is 501 (Strong) and 502 (Weak). Is that because CONECA considers them to be from the same die, but a different stage? BTW- the weak strike above looks ...

Re: New to the Forum

I didn't think tokens or private mints could put UNITED STATES OF AMERICA on their items. Which makes me wonder if it could be a pattern? I wonder how to find out if the eagle is similar to other styles/types used in the past, either here or abroad. This might help place a timeline on it. Maybe Che...

Re: New to the Forum

Nice job labeling the images BTW. Would brass corrode like that? Could it be copper with that much corrosion? Is that TED (as in UNITED) to the left of the Eagle you have labeled? ps. To enlarge images on the screen press the control button and the + button. I was able to get the OP images up to 30...

Re: 1919 Buffalo Nickel 2 Feathers FS-05-1919-401 Discovered

That's a neat type of variety.
It's amazing when you think about it, technically being damaged/altered in this case, how if something or someone gets enough hype and marketing we convince ourselves we want it. (I'd like to get a 1937, 3-legged Buffalo eventually.)
