    Error coin?

    Found this interesting 1981 D washington quarter in a roll from the bank while coin roll hunting today! It does not appear to be post MMD or enviromental! It has nice decent surfaces! I do not see any grind or tool marks on it and it all appears to flow like lava or liquid as well as appears to have other letters around the L especially a B between the L and I in liberty and L looks like upside down T, also "of" is clearly visable struck in Washingtons cheek. Appears to have defective peeling clad like error crack around IGWT to neck, on the reverseThe eagles break and part of head looks struck through or well missing and counter sunk like struck through debri, ridges on edge are there but appears to have several clipped errors and liquid like flow, it also appears to have the same diameter of a SBA dollar or Quarter but thinner! Appears to me that it is a quarter struck on SBA dollar planchet(if this is even possible Im not sure however SBAs were minted in 81') , a quarter on a nickel planchet, or wrong metal, however reeds are not smooth. I have not weighed it, but can send weight when I arrive back home, Please view all photos closely, as plenty are on the way, I sure would appreciate some input and yes weight can say a lot, I would just like some initial input and help, Please and Thank You, Sincerely, Copone1929
  3. Very Tough Coin! All the way from the bottom of the Sea.
  4. Top Pop Only 1 with this grade designation!
  5. Hello All! Something to note, some marks are simply typical worn die marks and does not typically result in a known error, as this is common with dies reducing in structural and surface integrity due to heavy impact and stress the die endures in it's regular life! In some cases before quality control catches fast and few a few get through! Also in a coin from the era you posted fractioning and cutting/chopping of a coin by vendors shopkeepers and citizens was common! Hence the Trime 3 cent dime 3 cent nickel these were minted as others were being chopped or melted into objects of period use that was more suitable of the time and at the moment such as a musket ball bushing shirt button or trousers! Errors did occur and things were repurposed a little more. Could be a real genuine error could be just a very cool price of history! Your eyes have the best view. Hope this helps. Capone1929
  6. Hello community and Nice Coins all! Just a Nice Genuine Irish
  7. Hello, this lil Mercury Dime Looks AG to be as well to me with decent date, Collar/Boarder converging with date fields and worn on highest part of relief almost to Smmooth! Nice Key Date, low montage, better mint mark slightly! Coin is Very Sought after as it is one of only key dates in the mercury silver US dime! It is .900 silver in purity! Main supply of these came from a very famous NYC hoard! These were melted n destroyed by large numbers, hense the survival rate plumited. Always a beauty to see in any genuine condition. Nice Find and or addition to your or any numismatist collection! Very Cool Pre-WWII Pre-Depression stock market crash, pre-prohabition era Silver Dime! A sign of the times in one of its rarest forms, MM, Montages, in yours condition photos posted, I believe it's(yours) is genuine in typical as found condition., However weigh it and see "wheight speaks volumes"! Sincerely, Capone1929
  8. It could quite possibly be British as well. Britos is known in that part of the world as well! My oppinion still is that it is Cuban. As for counterfeit I believe it to be Genuine simply because if someone is going to counterfeit a coin or token I believe they would spend their time counterfeiting a more valuable or easier coin such as silver as yours looks bronze and it is very tough to work with as it is Harder than Silver making silver easier to work with, so I do believe it is authentic! I am not an expert however I have been collecting and studying for quite a long time but this is just my opinion and mine alone. I do Hope this helps you in your research and helps point you in the right direction! Good Luck! Capone1929
  9. It could quite possibly be British as Britos is known in that part of the world as well! As for counterfeit I believe it to be Genuine simply because if someone is going to counterfeit a coin or token I believe they would spend their time counterfeiting a more valuable coin and not yours so I do believe it is authentic! I am not an expert however I have been collecting and studying for quite a long time. Hope this helps you in your research.
