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

Thanks,

Yes... I dont want to open... but what can I show?
I have its 4 budies....
The cent is even hard to explain...
The cent seems to have the design....???? cameo design I've never seen before, and out of about 12 combinations of red proof and cameo colors. I have many... and let me tell ya this penny looks to be a red proof reverse design. With a red deep cameo proof obverse.
Wierd but cool... same with the 25c 10c 5c.... I'm digging in attic now

The family I bought the collection from few years ago said when I purchased, that there grandfather collected error coins, which right up my hobby alley..... I purchased, then few days later, I bought the rest of the collection. At which time he said dad bought this junk online and I need the room for a nursery... he bought online and something belonged to a director... not thinking much of it at the time.... I better track that guy back down. I owe him a finders fee at the very least.

@trevor
Please be advised that the RULE for posting coins is ONE coin per-topic. DO NOT post a coin to be compared to, as those who are giving you their opinion know what the coin should or should not look like.


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. If possible it is recommended to remove the coin from the holder 2X2 flips or Mylar. 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

With the photos you supplied no one can see anything about the coin. First you have a photo of just a no. 4. this does not show anything at all about the coin. The next photos you posted of are again no use as they are way to small and again show nothing. So your question is exactly what? Is what real?

I am sorry, but at present the best I can say is yes, this is a real picture.
Please put yourself into my shoes to try to understand.

I open a post from the forum entitled, "What's the chances this is real?"

I see a picture of a screen showing a 4 on some coin.

That is everything I am given.

I like to help people. But unfortunately I do not yet have the plug in for my computer that allows me to read your mind 😊

Please try to understand that when you post something like this, unless you tell us specifically what you are asking a question about that we can only guess what you are looking at! Since we are guessing, it means we might not be answering what you are asking about. Then we BOTH end up spending more time before you tell us what you are looking at and answering that.

Please be specific as to what you think you see. We are willing to spend our time (for free) to help, please be willing to write enough we know what you are asking.😊
