  1. Better close ups will help but what you describe is not sounding like a doubled die. It would have to match one of these exactly. Wexler's Coins and Die Varieties (doubleddie.com)
  2. Well, they certainly aren't the major one for 1969 S. There is a more minor DDO variety but the pictures aren't close up or clear enough to tell. Where do you see the doubling?
  3. I agree completely with Sandon, I have been collecting for 55 years and never found anything of value either. It is not just a hobby for the well off though, there are many ways to collect that don't cost much at all. Putting together sets from circulation, foreign coins can be had very cheaply, even ancient Roman coins can be had for a couple dollars! If you like error coins, most of them are not very expensive at all. It's a hobby, an enjoyable way to pass some time and learn new things at the same time. What it definitely isn't is a get rich quick procedure! Stick around and read the posts, you may find an area of numismatics that interests you.
  4. Weight is irrelevant in this case, the Chinese fakes are often the correct weight anymore, this coin is a clear fake.
  5. Welcome to the forum. Just a normal clad half dollar, I can see the copper core on the edge. The copper appears to be on the left side as the coin is pictured, sometimes it doesn't look like it is in the center due to the way the metal shears when the blank is punched out.
  6. You're right, a little glob of glue or something, with the impression of whatever it was stuck to.
  7. Welcome to the forum. Yes, both cents are large dates, once you get the hang of it the large and small dates are very easy to tell apart. Your 1912 is a Philadelphia minted coin, that is why there is no mint mark, "V" or Liberty nickel that has been gold plated and really beat up, no errors that I see so really no value there.
  8. Welcome to the forum. Sorry, but no error here, just a stained, discolored, environmentally damaged coin.
  9. That cent looks like it was subjected to some kind of acid which reduced the weight.
  10. I don't see anything to indicate an experimental planchet. It is toned with maybe a bit of environmental damage, and the edge looks completely normal.
  11. Can you post clear pictures of your coin, both sides?
  12. Excellent advice given by Greenstang and Sandon. If you want to look for errors, first study and learn what errors are. If you just start looking for coins that are "different" you are in for a long difficult journey!
  13. Is one of the two coins pictured yours? Not much information to go on here.
