1943 steel cent error help

#1 Unread post by Dudbug » Thu Jun 13, 2019 1:38 am

I have searched on an off for over a year now trying to see if in the year 1943 there was a error with a ghost 3. I haven't had any luck and I'm quite sure the coin I have would be considered to have ghost 3? I'm relatively new as a coin collector and any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

These are very common and are struck through grease filled die but too minor or add any value.

I would need to hugeeyes better images here to determine the die state here. :mad:
If I had to guess,... I would go with slight die plugging... :dunno

When you say better pictures, do you mean for me to take some with a different angle of light hitting the coin? I was using my phone and a magnifying glass to take these.. lol
Thank you for your response

the second 1943 above has been replated as well and why it is shiny. Here's my video on that https://youtu.be/CYkoT-2Vi2w

No biggie, your full coin images were enough to attribute this type of anomaly.
