Re: 1 cent

Of course, anyone here will be glad to help you out.
Just post a clear picture of both sides of the coin with an explanation of what you are looking for.
Important that you only post one coin per thread in order to save confusion.
Looking forward to seeing what you have.

Re: 1 cent

Not a wrong planchet.
2006 was a transition year where the RCM changed from copper plated zinc to multi-ply plated steel.
The mean weight of the copper coins was 2.25g and the plated steel was 2.35g so they would have a
slightly different tone to them.

Sorry but that is just a damaged coin, either intentionally or unintentionally.
The only way an error can occur is during the striking of the coin and there is no way that could happen during that time.

Re: 2013 5 cents

Not an error, just some of the Nickel plating that has come off exposing the Copper beneath it. PMD

Re: 1 cent

Jay- You are confusing what appears to be zinc rot and discolouration for errors. This is just PMD.(Post Minting Damage) Even if there were some die chips, they are so common that they would not increase the value. I suggest that you read some of the online forums showing what true major errors are,...

Re: 1985 triple die? Any value

Looks like Machine Doubling that has bounced twice.
No extra value.

Re: 1 cent

Your showing two different cents but I don't know why you would think they have any value above one cent.
Can you elaborate?

Re: Pre-1966 Pennies

I would say it depends on far back the dates go. Are they just Queen Elisabeth's? If so then in circulated condition they are probably worth 2 1/2 cents each for copper value. The chance of finding any errors are slim as they have probably been looked over. If there are any King George V & VI cents,...

Re: 1983-D US Penny?

The new pictures do not change the fact that it is a badly damaged coin. As I stated in my previous post, there are only certain things that can happen to a coin while in the striking chamber that can cause an error and that is not one of them. If you truly believe you have something special, spend ...

Re: 1983-D US Penny?

Same answer as the other Forum you posted this on. Just a badly damaged coin.
There is no possible way that could happen during the striking of the coin.

Re: 1982 D small date ...Copper... maybe..

To me that looks like because of the rough surface that it may be copper plated zinc coin.
You are going to have to weigh it with a scale that goes to two decimal points as there are tolerances on the
cents that have to be taken into consideration.

Re: 2006 Canadian penny ?

That is what is called a Texas cent. It is created by putting a copper plated cent between two pieces of leather and beating it with a mallet expanding the zinc core . The copper plating does not expand as much as the zinc and breaks and falls off leaving a larger zinc core. Because it is larger, it...

Re: 1982 D small date ...Copper... maybe..

Your going to have to get a scale that goes to two decimal points and we need a closeup of the coin.
Hard to tell with that small picture.
