1993 Canadian one cent help please

Postby Coinlady » Tue Feb 21, 2017 9:37 pm

This penny I found has a weight of 2.44g is more narrow one one part of rim. It is missing a couple dots on the obverse side, however it appears to have much more errors? Your advice is much appreciated !
Thanks in advance

I don't think that the coin has any errors, but it's hard to tell from the pics. It looks like all post-mint damage, maybe some of it in a dryer and some time in coke or acid or underground in acidic soil.

Thank you Bill. I'm new at this and anything odd I'm questioning. So I'm grateful that I have the opportunity to share my photo's and get feed-back. I do have a question.....is there a tool I can use to determine if one or both sides are rotated or off centre?

Yes, there are tools, but it's just as easy to put them in a 2X2 and mark lines 90, 180, 270, 360 and look at them, with one side escatly straight up and down. If you can't eyeball it, look at one side with the other side facing a mirror. I am not real familiar with small cents, but it's important that you know exactly what 180 is on the coin before you draw the lines.... could be a mintmark or center of a date or legend.
