Yup, that’s me. I have close to zero tolerance for foolishness. And even less for marketing hype.

"Cute" names for common errors are a huge detriment to the hobby in my opinion. They are used to fool new collectors into thinking that they are something rare and valuable. Look at the following

Spitting eagle = minor die clash

Spitting horse = minor die crack

IN GOD WE _RUST = minor filled die

None of these minor errors are worth a premium, but because they've been hyped by YouTube hacks, new collectors are wasting their money buying them on eBay. Why?  Because a cute name makes them think its special and that doesn't help new collectors

IMO, there is no need to come up with fancy names unless you want to take advantage of new collectors

BTW: a cracked die on a proof coin is a nice find and much more uncommon than business strikes
