Pennies

#1 Unread post by d'anna.bates » Thu May 04, 2017 12:50 am

Hi my name is D'Anna (pronounced Dee Anna) I collect pennies started collecting as a child with my dad. I'm going to be honest I have a pile of pennies that just seem not right and I joined in the hopes a nice person would help me identify any errors. I won't post the hole pile at once a couple here and there. I bought a book to try to do this myself but I'm not really interested in the error aspect of collecting and that lowers my reading comprehension skills down considerably. My spare time (about 9 minutes a week)is just not sufficient enough to teach this kinda old dog new tricks. My grandson has labeled me as kinda old actually it was a quick thinking correction to calling me old probably inspired by my facial expression. I think he is kinda cute and kinda smart.

Welcome. And congratulations on still collecting after starting with your Dad. We look forward to seeing your "shares".
Any chance on the 1943s you can weigh it (grams) and also measure the diameter (millimeters) with a micrometer? Thanks

Thanks for the image of the reverse but it is too blurry when enlarged to make out any thing. Can't really tell if there is anything other than post strike or post mint damage.

Welcome to the forum and post images as much as you can and we will help.

On to the coins; they both look like dryer coins meaning the edges have been pushed inward and overlapped themselves. Steel cents are harder than copper so they will look a little different, but the only thing that can cause this type of damage is pressure on the rim of the coins. Pressure that doesn't happen during the minting process so this is post mint damage.

i'll go with "PMD" on the steel cent also......
i would need to hugeeyes it first hand to say 'exactly' what was done to it, but NOT a 'minting process' error.
