Latest Shield and liberty nickels Errors cherrypicks ?

2 posts in this topic

Hi all .. got my latest eBay finds today and i am quite pleases with them .. what do you think ?


the first is a 1868 shield nickel which from the sellers pictures looked as if it was bent .. but its not Wahay! i have had a look through Fletcher for this CUD but its not listed as far as i can see also i am not 100% but the 1 in the date seems as if it could be doubled in a NW direction with a die crack running from the rim through the 1 to the ball !


Sellers images


my scans




The second is a 1903 V nickel which was cheap hear in the UK and seemed in good condition in the sellers picture..


on closer inspection there seems to be a possible re-punch of the number 3 in a NE direction. also when you look at the coin upside down you seem to be able to see an impression of AL the numerals in the date.


this is not a series of coins i usually collect and when i looked through cherrypicker i was amazed at how few are listed..and could not find a reference to any 1903 errors..What grade would you give to this coin as i have no idea on these







thanks for looking
