Missing parts of coin devices

#1 Unread post by BillyBob »

For missing coin devices, we understand grease is the likely culprit. And not even a rarity, but is there any extra value to these coins?

Hey B, not really, we get a bunch of these posted on a regular basis, and I have yet to see one the Daniel or Paul say has added value. In fact that is a good subject for me to do some research on, the why not. I will get back to you.

Most are not worth anything. It happened too often and to random devices. Something extreme (not just a letter or two) will sometimes sell for more.

Look at eBay SOLD auctions and the ones that sold.
