Brad,

you need to invest in a Cherry Picker's Guide. It has most, if not all ,the truly and semi valuable varieties. If you do not find an exact match in there then go to a website such as Variety Vista, If you do not see your coin in one or both of those sources you have a non-variety. You will learn more about coins and varieties then you could imagine.

No, that is not correct.  The P mintmark was used on dimes starting in 1980.

I think the point is that you have to start by looking for varieties that are already known, and learn how to identify them. When you don't know what you're looking at, the chance that it's something new is near zero. Even if it was a new discovery, the road through confirmation, attribution, publication, and collector interest is a long one, before you get to "rare" and "valuable".

Sounds like you need to buy a Red Book, too.

Yes sir I completely understand but this is what I know about these coins they came from a error collector estate and yes he did collect all types of coins but alot of this stuff still in bank rolls and I'm having to learn and distinquish errors I have always be a collector just not of errors

Brad,

 

I'm moving to Alabama late this year and intending to join the Madison County Coin Club. The retirement monster approaches. Since I'm moving south to evade snow (I've shoveled my last), that probably means rarely getting to NYINC anymore, but getting to FUN almost every year.
