Hi, Newbie here found some potential defect coins

#1 Unread post by Canonoch » Tue Jan 22, 2019 12:42 am

Hi, everyone my name is Brian. Just recently started hunting coins for errors. I've been a minor collector for years. Saving wheaties, silver, and older coins when I find them.

I recently found a couple of coins I need help figuring out if they are defects or not.

I have a '76 50c along the rim above the "Y" looks like it is stamped out.

and rim is rough leading from the T on down. I compared it to other 50c pieces which look normal.

Rim defect above the T & Y
The other one is a 1c and there is a light ridge from liberty through "In God We Trust" around towards the date.

.

It looks like it happened before the coin was struck as the lettering is clear

Any thoughts, opinions, and help in learning is greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum and thanks for posting your coin questions and coins!

Your Kennedy Half is a small cud or rim die break, it is minor but interesting.

Your Lincoln Cent ridge is caused by die fatigue and is extremely common on cents.

Thanks for the info. I found another penny with 3 ridge lines next to Liberty last night. I look forward to learning more.
