Intro and question

#1 Unread post by Steven B »

Hello, I'm Steve. I live in the beautiful Banana Belt of the Southern Oregon coast. I have been looking for error pennies for a few months, since hearing about the 1982 D small date copper planchet. So far not much luck with the exception of a couple of floating roof pennies (Not sure if those are actually considered errors.) But it is kind of fun. From what I've seen on this site the moderator and other numismatists have some pretty extensive knowledge and study on this subject. I thank you for having this forum. I can see how you, or I, could love doing this. My question is, is there a monetary component to your motivation? Have you made money at it, and would you do this if there was no money in it? I guess maybe when and if I find my first true error coin (not necessarily worth a bunch) I might answer my own questions.

I do not look for minor errors and rarely make money off errors or varieties unless I buy a collection with those coins. Welcome to the forum!
