  1. Good morning all, been awhile since I posted.   I have been searching all the VAM websites attempting to find this VAM I have on (several) 1926 peace dollar. Its the exact bar wing error on the 1922 and 1923 but they are on my 1926 peace dollars... ?? is this something no one else has found?  Sorry I don't have access to it right now to take a photo, but am curious if this is a rarity or not?


  2. Ok,. .. So I have several Bar Wing error peace dollars.  1923...but what is kinda freaking me out, is I have several that have the same error but on a 1922 Peace Dollar.  If you http://www.pcgscoinfacts.com/VAMs.aspx?vid=2 look at the 1923 VAM 1-O Bar Wing photo, I have that spike that sticks up like a bar, but also have that same one on coins dated 1922.  Can't find that as an error anywhere. Does anyone know about this?  


  3. Hello Again,

    Ive been searching my uncles proof sets.  I am now into the 1990s.  I just found in his 1996S proof set a penny with , from what I have been reading about, a wide AM and seeing other photos of the 1992 Wide and Close AM , This looks like a wide to me, the A & M are not almost touching as would be with the close AM.  Correct or incorrect?? Am I misunderstanding? Was the wide AM error on a business strike? and the proofs had the wide AM as a normal feature?

    Your input would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!

  4. Good Evening Everyone!

     

    So was looking through my proof sets and came across this set. Blue circles forming around the Half, the quarter and in front of Roosevelts face. Tried to get a good shot but it is actually a bit more blue in person..

    So 4 questions

    1.  Is this what toning looks like? 

    2   How does this happen in a mint sealed proof set?

    3.  Is this detrimental to the proof set?

    4.  Does this increase or decrease value? (or is that subjective to the eye of the beholder?)

     

    Thanks all!

  5. I hope i can reference PCGS.  I have been researching a proof set that I have from 1968.  They are selling for around 11.00 on ebay.  What is confusing me is this http://www.pcgscoinfacts.com/coin/detail/2909/67 

    How did that penny 1968-S 1C, RD (Regular Strike)graded at  MS67+ Sell for $3995.00?   Is it from a proof set that was opened? I guess I don't get why one whole set of the same year, same proof set selling for 11.00 yet the penny which is a mint strike command such a price?  Is Mint state the same as proof?? how do they determine Mint , Proof, if someone submits a coin for grading out of a set? 

     

    Here is my penny from my mint set.. curious what this grade would be.

     

    sorry my photos are blurry its getting late and I have been researching since 6 am this morning.;p (the line in the photo is a hair of some type within the case, i slid my finger across the plastic and the static made the line move..hence, hair ;) )

  6. was reading this thread and have a few questions. JKK you said in regards to DD " Every coin struck from that die will exhibit the doubling,".  I have several 1955 pennies and have found none with doubling.  So how does that make what you say true?  Did they change the die when they discovered the error? and in regards to Karens post here...so are you saying the Mechanical error on Karens quarter isn't valuable?  I have a 1922 peace dollar with the DDO tiara, and have other 1922 peace that do not.  how does that happen? sorry newbie here.   Also do lamination errors hold any value?


  7. Hello Everyone,

     

    hoping someone can tell me if this is worth anything.  Found this 1969 D penny, in my uncles collection.  The artist initials which should appear as FG?  cannot be discerned. I took a close up through my jewelers loupe.  It looks like a tiny glob of metal but no definition on the coin.  Is this a rare error or anything I should concern myself with? 
     

    Thank you!

  8. Thank you everyone.  Your input is invaluable.  I just told my Dad today that we need to separate the coins.  Inventory and then research.  Thanks casman we were thinking alike.   I was going to go to Vegas, to get some of these graded. But decided it probably best to get everything cataloged first.  What I am curious about, as I have a few books on coins and been researching a great deal on errors, varieties, lol thats about as far as i know what to look for.  

    I am seeing that even though I have a couple of books, they do not include all coins, all mint errors.  Is there a website that someone can recommend that has lists of all the error/variety and not sure if there are other types coins, that I should be looking for?? I am finding websites but nothing all encompassing.

     

    best regards, and thank you all again for your condolences and wealth of knowledge.

  9. I have been reading up on Roosevelt dimes. An article about 1968 San Francisco mint mark error, missing on the 1968 dime.  My question is, if you have a Roosevelt 1968 dime and it has no mint mark, does this mean its Philadelphia or the rare error? In other words, if a coin is missing  a mint mark, how do you know? how do you know its a San Francisco mint error?   So confusing. lol
