Re: wondering what happened to these coins

It can't be a plating error as 1942-43 Tombac Nickels were not plated.
Looks like some sort of environmental damage.

Re: U.S. error penny

The OP stated in his write up that it is a 1982 zinc large date.
The weak “STATES” is caused by the amount of metal used to on the Obverse to strike Abe’s head
that it doesn’t always leave enough metal to fill in the cavity of the lettering thus causing weakness.

There is no premium for a damaged coin.

Re: 2015 1$ lamination error or type of error?

Not a lamination error, just some discolouring on the reverse.
You can’t have a lamination on this Loonie as they are made from multi-ply brass plated steel.

Re: 2003 penny struck thru grease

Looks like a regular 2003 CENT that has some environmental damage.
Where do you see it being struck through grease?

Re: Straight clipped planchet?

A clip that size should show a Blakesley effect. There is no sign of even the slightest one.

Re: Straight clipped planchet?

I agree
That has been done after it left the mint.
Just a damaged Toonie.

Re: Not sure if real 1955 P DDO

At first glance I thought it was genuine but upon closer inspection I would have
to say it was counterfeit.

Re: 1975 10 cents

Nothing happened at the mint.
It is just circulation wear and damage.

Re: 1968 10 cents

Looks like it has taken a hit. PMD of some kind, certainly not an error.

Re: U.S. error penny

When posting photos, please show one of each side instead of two of the same side, this can be important when evaluating a coin. As far as your coin goes, the dots are plating bubbles. Eventually they will get bigger and break causing the zinc core to corrode. Copper plated zinc coins are notorious ...
