  1. I'm sure the quarter is damage but would like to know by what. Also, so the lines around Lincoln's Headare not from a re-engraving?
  2. I will. I don't think it is replated though. Rick, what would they be on my Harper's Ferry Quarter? Idt they are counting marks because I've had it since it was pretty new, but I suppose it coulda been thrown into a counter the 1st day.
  3. Hey folks. I hope you all had a great holiday season and have brought the new year in with a bang. I did manage to stay awake until after midnight so that was nice. Onto coinage related stuff then... I have 2-1943 Steelies with the same maladies on the back of the head. And then I have this one that I've attached an entire buttload of photos because whatever is causing the issue on the head is all over plus there are 3-5 lines curving around the inner edge of the obverse. I think the marks on the edges of the design are caused by the Retouching of Design Elements, as was common, I gather, during the 1940's. Those lines around the inner edge though really have me stumped. Idt the coin is in bad enough shape to have been run through a counting machine, but I really don't know. I also have a WV State Park Quarter with similar marks around it too. Any input is most appreciated. I guess we'll have to do this the hard way cause it won't let me upload many of my shots. I will try to get some into the comments as well. They really need to change that feature. If I share 2 of the same then I am sorry. Thanks y'all!!! It won't let me share ANY of my good shots! Hopefully there is enough here to make a determination from. Grrrrr....Spoon! Spoon! Spoon! Spoon! Spoon!
  4. Can I sell now I can't wait for grading and auction n all ? I only want like $50-$100

  5. Hey Strangers! Long time, no chat huh. Oh, I been pretty good and hope you all have been also. Ok. Enough small talk. Lol! Idek if I should be posting to the Newbie Forum anymore but I just dk where else to post a question. So here I am, back again. I have looked high and low and cannot find a list with photos of ALL the 1969S RPM's. Wexler shows 11 but photos of only one, Variety Vista shows 5 and Lincoln cent shows a big ole goose egg. Since I haven't quite mastered the Double Die yet, actually I have mostly stopped looking at all, I still mistake MD for DD and this S could well be MD. I just wanna find out for sure and if any of you guys know of a list I sure would appreciate a link. I'll go ahead and attach a photo just because idw my postimg to be naked. Thanks a bunch.

    Hey Condor, I am just thrilled to have not only seen something as cool but that it is mine. I am really curious as to how something like that stayed attached there since 1966.

    Ihy Maulemall. Want another? Lol! I have a few but nothing quite this drastic and none with the metal just kind of hanging there. I am pretty stoked about having it. Spoon JKK, that was mouthful, huh? I think you have picked up on quite a bit more knowledge of errors than you're willing to admit. Just saying. You know, you probably have answered or commented on 95% of the posts that I've made here. I've never had you steer me wrong either. So there! I do know one guy that only collects errors. I haven't seen him online for a week or so but am hoping that he sees my 1966 Lincoln Cent with the Retained Lamination Error real soon and maybe be interested in it. Fingers crossed. I really have zero idea how ebay works so either someone will see it or I'll have it forever. Either way, I'm happy.

    JKK! Good to see you Sir. I hope you have been well? I must admit that I am here quite often reading through the postings and am always happy to see you and a couole of the other guys. Now onto the business at hand...you make good points, although at first I thought it was done in a vice and because people just get bored. But now I do believe it is an actual Mint Error that is actually worth a premium, imagine that, since the coin itself isn't in terrible condition. Dude said that to the right buyer I could get $15-20 for it! If only I had a clue as to where to start with trying to unload it. Somehow I doubt the right person is just going to pop up in front of me. What I do know is that $20 is almost enough to purchase one of the Buffalo Nickels I need. I am super stoked, btw, and thanks for responding. I do think you know much more than you let on.
  9. Hey Guys. Y'all know I only come over for the big stuff so your time can be spent with others. Gosh I'm so considerate. Lol! Now to the business in my hand... I was sure this was PMD because I would never be fortunate enough to find something so awesome. But a couple people have said it's def a RetainedLamination Error. Mind you that the one piece is movable, and I am being careful with it. I did an edit and tried to highlight all the areas I see as unusual. Almost makes me think of the spider web error I've seen on a couple of websites. So whatever you guys think, please put those thoughts into words and add them to this posting. Thanks so much.
  10. So I can't find a more recent thread for posting our most recent acquisitions, so I will post it here since this is the Forum that I am in most. I purchased this beauty from someone here in our forums and I couldn't be happy with her. It isn't a Key Date or anything that would make her special to you guys, but being my first she is very special to me. If anyone else wants to share something you are especially proud of, I'm sure we'd all like to see it.
  11. Just here wanting to share my joy. Maybe some of you guys remember the Coins of the 20th Century template that I rec'd for Mother's Day this year. Well, I just now made a deal on the first coin I will purchase from an individual, because I have purchased Proof Sets from places and will use many of thise coins in this set, and the person I dealt with is from right here within the NGC Forums! It is a beautiful 1921 Morgan Dollar. I thought it would be much more expensive than it was and that makes me even happier. Once I have it in hand I will,post again with photos. Thanks NGC, for being the 1st Chatroom that I had decent guys not being rude so I hung around for a while.
