1911 large cent

Post by Chris54 » Sat Apr 25, 2020 8:05 am

I am a new member so if I ask basic questions that seem naive please forgive me. I've recently acquired a few large cent coins and a 1911 has a planchette (sp?) on the left side of the reverse that starts at the edge of the coin and moves medially to partially cover a leaf, vines and touch one other leaf. It starts level with the top of the O of ONE and terminates level with the bottom of the C of CANADA. The 'dental' work of the medial side of the edge of the coin is visible and the intruding copper appears to be a thin wafer that may have been within the die and when the coin was struck, dislodged and became adhered to the coin...my guess work only. Comments? If pictures help, as I'm sure they would, please brief me on how to do so on this site. Thanks for any opinions and dissection.

Welcome to the Forum.
As mentioned, pictures are a must in determining the status of a coin. It could be several things from damage to a legitimate error. Let's see what you have and someone will be able to help you.

Thanks for the replies. i will try to post pictures Friday. I'm sure it's easier than it sounds but given my dislike of this medium don't hold breath.

Hello,
Attached are a picture of the 1911 one cent with planchet. Also, I have an 1859 one cent coin that may have been in a corrosive environment due to pitting. It retains the copper hue but also, under magnification, displays a hiar line crack from the O of one down through the C of cent.
After typing this I'm unable to decipher how in god's name to attach pictures so F it. Out.
