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.

Also if you're having trouble posting an image then here's our guide for that. How To Post Images

Why are you posting coins from PCGS? I have no clue what you looking at or what you think the error/variety is. Putting the subject as Re: 1955 50C "Bugs Bunny" MS 65, FS-401, FBL (Regular Strike) DDO/DDR? So are you asking if this a Bugs Bunny Franklin? Are asking if it is a DDR? Are you asking it this a DDO? Or are you just asking us to do the researching for you?

I don't think you have received this information on posting photos

When posting photos of a coin you would like someone to look at, you NEED to post a Cropped photo of both the the full Obverse and Reverse. Try to take these photos as clear and close as possible. Next take some photos of the area in question, again as close and clear as possible. It would also help if you could find some way to point to the area in question or give a detailed explanation of what you want to be looked at. DO NOT just say "What Error is this?", "What do you think about this coin and what is the value?" or "What can you tell me about this coin?". We would happily provide you with sites you can research coin errors and varieties.

If you need a photo editing program, there are three free ones that come to mind. They are PhotoScape, Inkscape and Gimp. Of the three PhotoScape is the easiest to use. I use PhotoScape and it will do everything required to post photos on the board. Daniel explains quite well in the following two topics, POSTING PHOTOS plus his video on this same topic Daniels posting Coins Video on posting coins

To both Vet and Sal,
What’s up boys and girls! Is this how you show camaraderie on this forum. Maybe I don’t possess the requisite experience that you desire, but it’s not for my honest effort to seek the help of the more experienced collector. Your comments, while snarky and self amused, are long winded and tiresome. Maybe this is the way it is, just take it and swallow hard. No way, not I. Daniel, I am a subscriber to your YouTube vlog and followed your suggestion to this forum for advice. Who needs these grumpy old remarks from the peanut gallery. Unfortunately this has left a bad taste, therefore I respectfully resign my subscription to your vlog and membership to this forum.
It’s been a blast, but I must be on my way.
Bye Bye ladies…

Hi Frankinfish...Best thing to do is to inform yourself on how to identify a variety. There are plenty of resources online and that also have been mentioned on this forum. Start here and click the DDO or DDR listing sublinks, then the year and corresponding mintmark of the coin:

http://www.varietyvista.com/11%20Frankl ... /index.htm

Another thing to do is search past posts on this forum of topics you might have a question about, the answer to your question might have already been posted..the last thing you want is to get frustrated, lets enjoy the hobby and have fun with it.

Best of luck hunting!!!

Whoa there guys! Time to diffuse a bomb here!
Why are you posting coins from PCGS?
You must have missed where Frankenfish said he was posting PCGS pics of HIS coin.
Need some help identifying the correct DDO/DDR for my PCGS graded Franklin Half. Attached are the PCGS photos and some closeup I made from the same.
(emphasis added)

He said he is going from the forum, so now Daniel's forum has a bad rep from someone who actually was following instructions.

We all make mistakes, and I know it gets hard to keep a good outlook here when correcting the myriad of folks who do not follow the rules. And I MAKE BIG MISTAKES as well. Let's take a breather and regroup so WE don't end up chasing others away as well.

Yes I did miss that part. All I can say is am sorry about it, and will be more careful in the future

I am unable to determine if this is a variety or not using the images posted for attribution.....
