Re: 2007 Extra metal nickel

All of it appears to be metal, I tried to scratch it off with my nail but it's not going anywhere, I broke my nail on it. The large obverse lump is definitely metal but the small one is in fact a hole in the coin.

Re: 2007 Extra metal nickel

Alright. I'm just trying to figure out what it could be. I know what solder looks like and this is not it, that's all... No need to get angry... Thanks for the input Bill.

Re: 2004 nickel couter-stamped with 1997 dime

I never mentioned or proposed it was a mint error coin... My understanding now is that the word ''counter-stamped'' was not appropriate for this particular coin.

Re: 2007 Extra metal nickel

I dunno, Under magnification the lump on the reverse looks like it was plated the same as the rest of the coin. The obverse lump lost it's plating though...

Re: help with grading these coins

Re: Differentiating between a PL and uncirculated coin?

The PL coin will have a mirror like finish. The MS coin will sometimes have a ''frosty'' finish, like light fogging of a mirror. The specimen coins will present a cameo effect, usually on the portrait.
