Re: 1949 Half Moon Dollar

Well, the dollar guru says that it's probably a die clash that may match the King's ear. Makes sense. Still, it's a minor error and not worth the bigger bucks.

Re: 1949 Half Moon Dollar

I had never even heard about such an error. I have 4 '49's and all have NO MOON. I'll get in touch with a $1 person to see what he says. It must be a die chip or gouge that did it.

Re: gold coins

It would vary from day to day, depending upon the NY price of gold. Your coin would probably not sell for any real numismatic value and would probably be at about 95% of scrap gold price and well below what it cost from the mint when new.

split planchet, with a piece of the missing chipped metal struck into the hair. A neat coin ,,, maybe George got a hair transplant

Re: 1859 penny

Wearwise, it looks VF or XF under the corrosion, but it's way too damaged to be worth anything ... less than a buck or they make great golf ball markers. Acetone will remove some of the green, but the damage is done.

Re: 1871 PEI one cent die axis varieties

I have 11 of them and all are coinage, so that's not the scarcer one. Charlton is wrong once again.

Re: Thoughts on grade on a 1907 H? Submit for grading?

I think that you posted this '07 on another site and I said that it was only AU, maybe AU+, based on the vertical jewels in the crown and some of the leaf tips, as well as a couple high spots on the Obv (bead & shoulder). I don't think it's MS, so I wouldn't send it to a TPG. It's just a very nice c...

Re: 1938 1 Cent Double 938 Left Leaf & more!

It looks like machine/mechanical doubling (MD). There is one listed elsewhere on this site under the appropriate denomination and date. Once you click on the specific date, at the bottom of the page, you will find varieties & errors that have been submitted by members. Since the title of the error l...

Re: 1967 1 Cent DDRs and DDOs

Without seeing the lettering, I'd say Mechanical/machine doubling (MD) with die deterioration doubling. Both are errors, not DD's.

Re: 1 Cent 1897 (low 7)

Actually ICCS quit certing the 1896 "far 6" and Charlton and Trends will quit as well. A variety is one specific type of anomaly that will have certain markers. The "far 6" had any number of separation degrees from the 9. The first coin to be certified as a "far 6", I helped the collector get it thr...

Re: 1 Cent 1897 (low 7)

The last digit in the date (7) was handpunched into the dies for that year. Because of that (and it taking more than one whack of the hammer to the punch) you will have some differences in the position of the 7 with the rest of the digits. You will have high, low, near, far, canted, etc depending on...
