Blank Coin - Basal State - Coin Rim Issue

#1 Unread post by CheyenneGilson » Sat Aug 18, 2018 6:46 am

Hello, my name is Logan. I'm in a bit of a spot financially so I thought what have I got to lose by inspecting my loose change a bit more diligently. So I found a few odd anamoulous coins and need help determining if any are valuable errors and of what sort. Any and all help will be much needed and appreciated. Thanks gotcoins:

All of these are damaged coins, the first coin is called basal state because you know it was a coin but it is so corroded and worn it can't be identified. Anytime you see rims, rubbed and flattened with lines and dings in them then it's been rubbed on something course and is damage.

It is better to post one coin per thread, it is much less confusing and easier for us to help.

Thanks and welcome to the forum!!
