Introduction and Help

#1 Unread post by pirata286 » Wed May 20, 2020 11:50 am

First and upmost, thanks Daniel for accepting me in the group. I am new to the coin hobby but have learned a lot from Daniel Videos. I need some assistance regarding a possible error. I purchased 3/4 of a 1968 D BU roll in an auction and when I receive the coins, I decided to look at them closely. Well I found this 1968D possible DDR???? I need your thoughts / inputs to see if I need to send it in for grading.
Thank you in advance for your time and effort.

I see potential die doubled features. Did you find a match on wexler's doubled die website or CONECA?

D, I believe he's going to send it to me to verify it.

Daniel,

I have checked with heritage auctions, Wexler's and she looks the exact same. I am going to send them in to Paul for verification. I will call Paul tomorrow to get all the details, and ship the quarter, plus I will send him two other coins with possible errors, and missing planchet or struck on a foreign planchet. I will stay in contact with both of you.
Thank you so much for the support.

V/R

Not sure whether your getting this but here goes. I'm interested in coins and collecting to some degree. About 2 months ago I got a roll of Buffalo nickels from a friend. I started to investigate about these nickels. From there I saw videos on Jefferson nickels. Then I got rolls from my local bank. Then started to make my own grading or finds according to what I saw in videos. Well it ain't that easy. I need more information as to what is really going on. I made purchases on Ebay and thought "are you kidding me"? It's like a feeding frenzy. I need to know more to navigate myself through my newfound hobby. Hopefully this forum can answer some of my questions about recognizing the finer points of collecting. Thank you for your time.
