Hello,my name is Lawrence Holden,I'm new to collecting,but I think I have already found a couple of interesting coins,The dime is in pretty good condition for a I think 1968 dime, could anyone please let me know if these are rare or no big find. Now I've read there was a 1983 P spitting eagle quarter,but mine is a D that looks like a double punch maybe? Please anyone give me some info,thank you.

Hi Lawrence. Since you are new to collecting, I strongly suggest you have fun and do some research into how coins are actually made. The reason for this would be to help you understand what actual mint errors are and how they happen. Its all part of the hobby!

It's not a rare find but we ask you post one coin per topic and also include images of the entire coin. Thanks

I'm sorry I posted more than one coin in my post,but would you please look again at the dime with a better pic? Look at the WE and how close the W is to the rim and how the WE looks like the 8

The WE and the 8 have both taken a hit and been "mushed."
