  1. Not an error, it is PMD. Something has hit the rim. There is no way that could happen when the coin was struck.
  2. A dealer would normally give you 50-60% of retail value.
  3. Looks like someone has put a thick layer of clear glue on it and pressed the edge of another coin on it. That is why you can still see the IN GOD WE TRUST lettering through it. Try soaking in pure acetone for about 24 hours and see if it comes off. This will not hurt the coin. Whatever the cause, It was done after the coin left the mint.
  4. You’re correct, this is something that could not happen during the minting of the coin. Just plain old damage however it was caused.
  5. Welcome to the forum Please do not use screen shots, they are too pixilated to see detail clearly. From what I can tell from that photo, your Cent is not an error, it is damage from a hit. There is nothing there that would happen during the striking of the coin.
  6. There have been counterfeits since the beginning of coinage. Age has nothing to do with it. Yours is definitely one of them. There is no identity or detail to identify.
  7. This is a duplicate post. It was established on the other post that this is a counterfeit coin.
  8. You have Machine Doubling along with might be some Die Deterioration Doubling. Doesn’t really matter as both are a worthless type of doubling.
  9. Those marks have nothing to do with the planchet. As stated, they are caused by the coin wrapping machine. You will find these on the end coin of most rolls. The filled D is caused by a broken post, this is common on D and P mint marks and adds no value.
  10. I would say a partial grease filled die. Not uncommon especially around the edges.
  11. I take it by bumping this post that you are looking for more lowballs Here is another of my PO1's, a Canadian 1892 50 cent coin
  12. It’s a counterfeit. No numismatic value. Just compare the photo with a genuine coin, it’s not even close.
  13. CCF hass a good Forum on coin photography. Lots of reading https://www.coincommunity.com/forum/forum.asp?forum_id=81
  14. glad that you changed your mind. In the future if you are looking at buying higher dollar coins, just post a clear photo of both sides of the coin on this forum and some one here should be able to help identifying whether it is genuine or not. Also if genuine, state the asking price to see if it is worth it or not.
  15. Not a Doubled Die, that is Machine Doubling, a worthless type of doubling. Also a Doubled Die is not an error, it is a variety.
