  1. You got that right!! We have become spoiled (or at least I know I have) with the ease of the internet and the popular TPG sites and the other well known reference websites. This stuff is WAY beyond my pay grade but I am loving learning more about these types of coins....... Tremendous job to those on this forum who have devoted their lives to Numismatics, a major Kudos!!!
  2. I agree with Just Bob on the Mint Mark. It possibly looks like something is there from your pics. I looked at VV's listings for this year's RPM but I did not see any Mint Marks with the same positioning as your Cent. Unless those are just spectacularly placed die chips....... I'm not sure. I will wait on the experts to comment.
  3. It is at the very least a very slightly Misaligned Die or MAD (without seeing the reverse to tell if it is an off-center strike). Not that it is worth more than face value but it is still a minor strike error and pretty neat and worth throwing in a 2x2 if you'd like.
  4. Welcome to the forum. Greenstang is correct, this is a copper/clad Bicentennial. I love these Quarters and with all due respect I just wanted to politely elaborate a tad bit on Greenstang's quote. There is a known variety for this date but it is from the Denver Mint, not the Philadelphia Mint. Yours looks to be a Philly Mint from the pic as I can't make out a D Mint Mark on the obverse. I believe "The value is on the Reverse" quote was meant in referring to the Doubled Die variety that does exist on the Reverse of the coin for the Denver Minted Bicentennial Quarter. Although your coin isn'
  5. Hello NumisMagic and WELCOME to the forum. Looks like what the other experts here have said, just a corroded post mint damaged coin. Lots of good info here on this site. Keep looking!!!
  6. Hello Eleonora and WELCOME to the NGC forum. Glad to have you and we all hope you learn a tremendous amount from the expert numismatics here on this site. You have definitely come to the right place to expand your knowledge.
  7. Thank you all for the replies. I just wasn't sure on this one especially with the reverse in as good of shape as it is (relatively speaking). Case closed.
  8. Hello to all. It has been awhile since I posted on the "Newbie" forum but thought this may get more attention than elsewhere. I sincerely hope all of you have been doing well. I have come a very long way in my learning about numismatics, varieties and errors predominantly due to those helpful members here on the NGC forum that spurned me along the way and gave me a host of information that I truly learned from, THANK YOU! I have also been diligent in doing my own research and learning from the plethora of information on the web as well (which everyone should do......). I came across
  9. Nope. 3.,,,,,, Is my computer going on the brink or have you posted this same coin three separate times on this forum????
  10. May I politely inject what a true doubled die looks like. I know this is a Linc but doubling is doubling...... Please move forward and learn what a doubled die is. Otherwise, you are just wasting your time chasing a dead end. The responses you have received regarding your coin are from the best of the best. There is no need to continue to try to convince a professional to believe you have something you do not.
  11. In case you didn't know, when you type in all Caps, it typically means you are yelling. So....SHOW SOME RESPECT TO THE SEASONED VETERAN MEMBERS ON THIS FORUM!!!!! Just sayin.......
  12. Only the Six Million Dollar Man had one of those........ I loved that show!!!!
  13. I completely agree with VKurtB. These USB microscopes have their purpose but IMO you are better off using a 10x or 12x GOOD Triplet style loupe, under an LED light source, to see the intricacies associated with true doubling. Light sources can cause havoc on the interpretation of determining a real doubled die vs. worthless doubling which is what you have here. Many of the people on this forum are experts and I suggest you take their comments and advice to heart. I am no expert by any stretch of the imagination (still learning from my own diligent numismatic research and from learning from th
  14. Based on your pics, what I am seeing is a completely worn out die. I can tell by the flow lines on the fields of the coin. This signifies a worn-out die which can lead to die deterioration doubling. It also appears to be a Dime, not a quarter....Just MHO........
