  1. Good to know, thanks guys! Guess toss it in the chuck-it-bucket
  2. oh wow yes, I'd be curious about that coin too.. but ya, I see what u mean. Some of my coins drive me crazy, my last resort is the help of you fine folks
  3. Do you know how this damage happens after it leaves the mint?.. Are the coins still soft enough to receive an impression? Curious thanx Bob!
  4. Anyone know what the image is on the torch of my 1971 D Dime? And seems image on the obv as well ear, hair, etc.. I'll comment and upload that pic (obv) too apparently both files too big to do at the same time.. Thanx!
  5. Wow jgrinz, are you insinuating I did this to this coin on purpose?.. I'm not that creative.
  6. Ok guys Thank you for all your feedback! If this is just damage, how does this type of damage happen? And, how does damage leave images? I'm not new at collecting.. I've only recently pulled out my hoard of coins and decided to figure out whats what, what means what, and how it all works. I really appreciate all your help!
  7. I would love to see some if you have any pix... thanx Rex!
  8. Hello everyone! I have this very pretty 1973 D penny that weights 3.4 grams, Lincoln is thick feeling and there seems to be double die down his back (don't know if the dd is visible to you guys but I see it on my scope and in correct lighting). I also noted rim issues to the west and misplaced mint mark. Any thoughts what would make my coin thick-ish? High relief maybe, or double die Lincoln? Your help is appreciated! *UPDATE* Oh my, guys! I must have been in a rush when I looked at my coin under microscope or had the lighting wrong.. because, I wish you could see this coin up close on a digi scope ( I have old fashion one lol) but, looking at it now, there are beautiful rays bouncing off his backside, plus entire Lincolns back, date, in god we trust, liberty is double died! and-- the D mint is punched over a smaller D, the smaller D is north-west under big D. His cheekbone is super thick and forward and his face is set forward (actually lots is forward "east"), and a cud on his face. What do you guys think? Maybe the double die is why he's so thick and over grams?
  9. Here are the original pix of this coin found on : https://collectivecoin.com/GT66 Love any comments on this coin! Thank you!
  10. How I came to the conclusion that this was probably a Die Clash Mule ( not mule ). Here is an image (attached) of how this coin should read (pardon I don't know the exact font used on US Coins for this era but did my best rep). The orange letters is what the 1948 wheat back penny should read like. The blue arrows point to the different images, letters/numbers that have been imaged (however it happened) on/above/below the surface of this coin. Now, what screams out to you that any of the images pointed to in blue on the coin belong to this particular year 1948 wheat back? not to mention the Obv. Its not just damage, as you can see, there are letters and/or numbers (exact and south) where ONE CENT should be, and there is some sort of image/s punched all over where the letters in orange belong. I do understand a mule, and I do understand a die clash mule, here is a description and example of a die clash mule (or rather mule clash die "either way"): http://www.maddieclashes.com/1857-flying-eagle-cent-clashed-with-a-1857-seated-liberty-quarter-dollar/ IF this was simply damage, one would just see damage. But I see images and letters or numbers all over this coin = Mule Die Clash. Am I wrong? Anyone care to comment? I would love to have some seasoned feedback
