1973 Jefferson Nickel with multiple errors.

9 posts in this topic

I have a 1973 Jefferson Nickel that has obvious errors. 1st thing I noticed was the stamping around the edging of the coin. Can't make out the words completely because I do not have anything other than a magnifying glass. It appears to me that this Nickel may have been stamped over some other kind of coin. The other error I notice is a visible 6 on the neck next to the hair above the collar. You can see lettering on the letters of the word Liberty. I am new to this coin thing but I believe there may even be some double die as well. That may be questionable. I would like your input on this coin.29B84430-F75C-4B54-8170-D61C8D4B4925.thumb.jpeg.2c996b9c417ba42302d8fccb2916fc3c.jpeg6BDAF804-7334-4961-8899-BA510493740A.thumb.jpeg.646a4c8f6a1a5570259c54a19ed7c60a.jpeg

I agree the nickel is not in the best of shape but how would you explain the 6 that is on the neck that is not from being damaged.

Where are you seeing a 6?  I don't see anything that I can convince myself looks like anything other than dings and scratches... And I don't think there's anything in the minting process that would randomly put a feature on a coin..

What you have is damage that resembles a "6." It is very common for hits on a coin to look like numbers of letters, but it is just as the others have said- damage.

This does not look like damage.

Pretty sure that's a combination of extensive wear combined with lighting.  The wear is giving you a hard edge into the recessed area instead of a smooth transition, making it look like there's something there.  But you can always send it in for evaluation.  Maybe they'll see it differently that the people here.
