garage sale find

I found this at a garage sale a while back. I had to shell out 5 bucks but I guess it was worth it.

Re: 1996 Penny/Dime mutant coin. Help please?

Re: 1996 Penny/Dime mutant coin. Help please?

First thing I would do is weigh it, it should be 2 1/2 grams. I have found quite a few coins like that and every one has been plated. I found online where they actually tell you how to do it. Also, if it was the wrong planchet, that would mean it was either bigger or smaller than a 1996 penny planch...

Re: uncut uncirculated 2 dollar bills

There are around 1 billion dollars worth of 1986 $2 banknotes that have never been turned into the bank, unless you had a rare prefix there is nothing special about them. Like I said in my first post, you might get a bit more because you have four uncut bills. I can still find 1937 banknotes at pret...

Re: uncut uncirculated 2 dollar bills

The book value is only around $3-4 each plus maybe a small premium as a novelty.

It is hard to see on the clipped coin but there is some kind of mark opposite of the clip. I am assuming the other is struck through grease.

I know this is the dime section but I included the penny as they both have the same error.

lamination error?

I think this is a lamination error. I have tons of error coins but not always sure of the proper names for them.

The first nickel has doubling and the second one is a 1957 bug tail.

wondering what happened to these coins

I got these nickels from different places over the years. I am assuming that it was some kind of plating error and that there must be more out there because they are different years. Feel free to share your thoughts. Thx

Re: 2003 penny struck thru grease

To me it looks like damage done after leaving the mint. I know there are people on here with much more experience than me so hopefully one of them will also give their opinion.

quarter damaged during striking

I traded a bunch of collectibles with a guy that used to own a coin store and now does on line auctions. I just thought I would post pics of one of the items I got. You can see when the coin was struck there was something on the planchet that shouldn't have been there. For obvious reasons I can't po...
