Connecticut Quarter 1999

#1 Unread post by Kellyplockman » Sat May 25, 2019 10:26 am

I am new to the coin world and am trying to learn when a coin should be graded. This one has the blank area to the right so I don't know what the mint is along with a few other errors. Will grading improve value?

:welcome:

I would need better images to determine what's going on here, in these pictures it looks like this coin also has some damage.

This is a damaged coin and worth face value, grading under the mint error tier cost $75 after shipping and all fees so this coin is not worth grading. Just a spendable coin.

It looks like it was smashed in a vice, maybe between some pieces of wood or something else.

These are much better pictures. Thank you.

Of course it is near impossible to ascertain the exact nature of how this coin became the way it is by just using Internet images.
It does look as if some of the "Devices", and portions of the "Rim" have been crushed .

If you see coins like this, there is a possibility that they may be a "Tapered Planchet" that shows an incomplete strike.
The best way to determine that, is to get an accurate weight of the coin, and compare it to the mint specifications.

:eureka:
If I were to give you a decision here, based upon images alone,... I would have to call this "Post Mint Damage" (looking at the damage to the rim).
