Re: 2018 error struck and upside 2018

Someone has removed and turned the inner core. Have seen this before numerous times.
It is impossible for the inner core to be struck upside down as the inner core and rim are struck at the
same time from a single die. Someone has also damaged the rim.

Would you please supply a clear picture of both sides.
Hard to give an answer without seeing the actual bill.
It could be genuine, it could be counterfeit.

Re: Old 1 buck bill never used...

The fact that it is a replacement note gives it some value over a regular note.
Hard to give a value when you only show one side but it does have some stains and fold marks.
Usually a collector would like these notes in at least CH UNC condition but it still might be worth $5-6.00

Re: 1974 die shift error

Not a weak strike, coin has been damaged after it was struck, known as PMD (Post Minting Damage)

Re: 1982 Constitution Dollar Weight

Those percentages take in account the impurities in the Nickel. 99.9% has .1% impurities.
The 1983 has 1% or less impurities. It is the same with gold or silver bullion coins. They are always 99.99% pure.
You never see them stating 100% pure.

Re: 1982 Constitution Dollar Weight

All the Nickel Dollars from 1968 to 1987 were 100% nickel.
As to the answer to your original question, I don't really know.

Re: 1965 PL RCM set of 4 varieties

I thought that may be the set. That is an aftermarket set in a Capitol coin holder. There are some for sale on eBay in fact there is one with all 5 varieties. I don't believe they are PL Dollars but Business Strikes. If it was assembled by the RCM, it would have their logo on it somewhere. I have no...

Re: 1965 PL RCM set of 4 varieties

I assume that you are talking about the Silver Dollar varieties (there are actually 5). Sounds to me like it may be an aftermarket set as I don't know of any variety set being released by the RCMs plus they did not use clear plastic cases back then. Pictures would be a great help to determine what y...

Re: 2016 Nickel - Oversized/Flattened bead between DG

Probably taken a hit that has slightly flattened it.
Pretty sure it didn't look like that when the coin was struck.

Re: 2017 Aurora Toonie - large dot-chip on obverse

It is not unusual to have a gap between the outer ring and the core. There are some out there that have a gap large enough that you can see through it. These usually bring a premium.

Looks like a plating bubble trapped between the brass plating and core.

Re: 1992 PEI Quarter w/ boils on Queen

Not an error, some sort of damage. Possibly acid as you suggested.

FYI-
It is only an error if it happens during the striking of the coin. Anything that happens to the coin after that is considered damage.
