Another oddity from my recent Northern New York trip by John M. Robinson II

Ok, I was not referring to myself


In my previous post I showed a Lincoln Cent that had -- extra metal -- connecting dates numbers together. I am now posting another oddity I picked up in Northern New York.


This coin, if real, is an off-centered planchet but, I can not tell of which coin. The dealer who sold it was not present and I obtained the planchant from a huge bin, separated into baskets, of U.S. and foreign coinage. Most, but not all, of the foreign coins were Canadian.


Since this coin has an partical imprint of the words -- nited S -- it is most certainly an United States coinage. The color is of a golden tone very similar to the Presidential and Sacagawea Dollar coins. The size, however, is much smaller. This planchant is slightly smaller then a Dime and closer to the size of a Cent. What appears to be a partial rim is also visible and does not react to a magnet.


Any comments or suggestions in regards to the attached image will be much appreciated. Personally, I have no knowledge of this coin except to say that it looks cool.


Best wishes to all and I hope all will have fun during their coin adventures.
