Re: 1969 small cents?

If they had any value, everyone would be mutilating their own coins.
If you learned the minting process, you would see that there is no way that
this or any other coin like it could have happened during the striking of the coin. It

Re: 1968 Silver value?

Seeing that the 1968 quarters are only 50% silver, in that condition you would probably only get about three or four dollars for it.

Re: wondering what happened to these coins

It can't be a plating error as 1942-43 Tombac Nickels were not plated.
Looks like some sort of environmental damage.

Re: U.S. error penny

The OP stated in his write up that it is a 1982 zinc large date.
The weak “STATES” is caused by the amount of metal used to on the Obverse to strike Abe’s head
that it doesn’t always leave enough metal to fill in the cavity of the lettering thus causing weakness.

Re: 2015 1$ lamination error or type of error?

Not a lamination error, just some discolouring on the reverse.
You can’t have a lamination on this Loonie as they are made from multi-ply brass plated steel.

Re: Straight clipped planchet?

A clip that size should show a Blakesley effect. There is no sign of even the slightest one.

Re: Straight clipped planchet?

I agree
That has been done after it left the mint.
Just a damaged Toonie.

Re: Not sure if real 1955 P DDO

At first glance I thought it was genuine but upon closer inspection I would have
to say it was counterfeit.

Re: 1975 10 cents

Nothing happened at the mint.
It is just circulation wear and damage.
