Please Read Before Posting A Topic

In the title please put date, denomination and type of coin design and a brief on what you are asking about.
In example: "1995 Lincoln Cent Missing 5" or "2010 Roosevelt Dime With a Line inside the rim".

All of this helps discern the different topics from each other and is much less confusing to members who want to help.
Topic titles like "how did this happen" or "help" often get ignored and lost in the confusion.

If you are not specific as to what you are looking at and thinking is an error, we cannot give you a good answer:

Here is a pretend scenario. I have a penny with a line through the date
What makes us scratch our heads: "Is this an error?"
- we have no idea what to look at b/c what you might see as an error is just the typical scratch we see all the time and know to ignore, and so we would not know that is what you are referring to
What makes us smile: "Is the line going through the numbers in the date an error?

The more specific you can be, the better and faster our answer can be for you😊
