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.

2011 P Roosevelt dime- damage or error

#1 Unread post by bandrchristy »

Can anyone tell me if this is a mint error or damage and if so, how the damage might have occurred. Just looking at it normally it looks like his eye is a blur and a lot of his hair is missing, but close up the eye looks gouged out, but it is smooth feeling not like there is a gouge there. The back is normal. Thanks

That would be Post mint damage . It was somehow worn down by anyone's guess but it definitely 100% damaged .

I agree with the Post Mint Damage.

May I recommend you study the following sites. Error-Ref and Wexler's Coins and Die Varieties

These two sites will help teach you about what a variety/errors coin looks like. I cannot stress enough how important it is to not just read the sites but to study them in depth, until they are seared into your brain.

I also suggest that until you learn the above and what can and cannot happen to a coin at the mint. You need to stick to looking for known errors. You will find what the TPGs will recognize as varieties on the PCGS web site. This will save you a lot of time in having to take photos and then posting them, only to told it is not what you think. The last site I would recommend is Glossary of Error Variety Terms. This last site will help you understand the terms we use, also it will assist you in helping us, by being able to explain what you are seeing and why you think it is what you think.


May I also recommend these short video on making money by the US Mint. US Mint Making Money Series
