  1. I read the related article in the Coin World monthly issue that just came out. LGF deserves a spot on the Mt. Rushmore of Medal and Coin Engravers.
  2. Wizard is a great company, they donated 120 one-a-year 1909-2009 Lincoln Folders to the Pennsylvania Association of Numismatics for their KidZone at cost. Saving us well over $200. I personally buy quite a few supplies from them.
  3. That is a very attractive coin, congratulations on the perfect score.
  4. So you've never upgraded a coin in your collection? If you did, then that preceding coin was a Hole filler even if you did not intend it to be at the time of your initial purchase.
  5. Are there any known Silver War Nickel planchets struck in 1946? I have never heard of any, the chances of finding one in the wild are infinitesimally small in any event.
  6. Not seeing it from your photos, diagnostics are described in this Coin Week article.
  7. Also dual-dated 1952 and 2002 for the 50th Anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's reign.
  8. I am getting really excited as October nears and the PAN Fall Coin Show beckons. We had a planning meeting last night and I presented some things I am planning on doing ifor the KidZone, to include our usual auction with our newly minted auction dollars. Last May, we could not find our auction dollars so had to use carnival tickets instead. We also could not find our Wheat Cents and had to scramble to find sources on the bourse. . So we now have a whole new batch of auction dollars that I have been printing over the past few weeks and the aforementioned 9000 Cents donated by a PAN member with a PAN dealer committing to another 1000 Cents (Plus the Remainder from Last May). Suffice it to say, we are going to have plenty of Cents on our table for the YNs Cent Albums. PAN also purchased 120 one-a-year Lincoln Folders, 1909-2009 at Cost from a national dealer. They are really nice folders and they will make the Penny Table so much more fun since we can also add Memorial Cents for the first time. We've got coloring books coming from the Mint, we have Ben Franklin appearing at the KidZone and judging the "Color Ben" coloring contest. We have loads of donated items, Copper Rounds and T-Shirts for each registrant, and 50 great auction lots to spend their auction dollars on. All For Free!!!! I actually went through the donated cents this morning, they were all rolled up so it took me awhile to go through, I checked maybe 2 or 3 dates per roll and found a very good mix with Cents as early as 1910, since I did not find a 1909 (although there is a good chance one was among the mostly unchecked cents), I threw a VF 1909 Lincoln into the bucket so I can honestly tell the Kids, somewhere on the table, is a VF 1909 Cent, and maybe more . The KidZone will be operating all day, Saturday, October 19th, if you make it to the Fall PAN show, stop by and say Hi, I will be there manning the KidZone Registration all day. For more details, go to the following link. It should be updated shortly with information about this October's KidZone auction Lots, etc. .

    Looks like environmental damage to me.
  10. To me, a hole filler is a coin added to a set but meant only as a temporary expedient until you can find and/or afford the coin you want to become a permanent part of your set.
  11. Welcome to a great site with lots and lots of knowledgeable people. I have been collecting for 50 plus years but still learn things on this forum everytime I log in.
  12. Try this for no cost:
  13. Looks like Japanese characters on the bottom, I will show it to my Mom and see what it says, if anything, it may also be Chinese as most of the characters are the same even if the way the character is spoken is totally different. But I bet it is a Chinese or Japanese arcade token.
