    Is it or isn't it me gold schilling

    Good evening, Have you googled the coin to see what the weight should be? That's the first thing I'd do. Also, I think there are various "scratch" tests you can do to see if something is really gold.

    Doubled die vs double strike

    As a materials engineer and a coin collector, I've never ever heard of that effect and politely point out that it's probably wrong. Can you point me to some literature that shows that?

    Doubled die vs double strike

    In all my years of collecting, I haven't heard it explained this way. It makes more sense than "a doubled die shows the image rotated slightly around a common center whereas a double strike shows doubling laterally or vertically". That may still be right, but the "same depth" explanation makes sense, too. However, it doesn't help when there is significant wear on the coin.

    When you flip the coin over on the horizontal axis (i.e. hold the coin by the left and right sides, then rotate it so the bottom goes over the top), does the image stay in the correct orientation?

    steel penny

    Pennies minted before 1982 are exclusively copper which means they'll stick to a magnet, too.

    Wikipedia's Featured Article of the Day

    A late entry: October 11, 2018 - History of the British penny (1714-1901) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_British_penny_(1714–1901) The article covers a lot of unfamiliar ground to me, so I can't speak to it. But I've always loved these cartwheel designs!!
  22. I've posted about these before but surprisingly often, a coin or note makes the Featured Article of the Day on Wikipedia! This happens so often that I actually have stopped posting about it but I think I need to. Numismatic topics are way more prevalent than other hobbies - take that philatelia! Featured Article on January 25th, 2014 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elgin,_Illinois,_Centennial_half_dollar Does anyone have one of these?
  23. Hi Rowellcents! Welcome to CoinPeople.com! Sorry for the delayed response! Have you found CopperCoins.com yet? They have a cool feature (http://www.coppercoins.com/advsearch.php) that lets you search for dates for special die varieties. They show pictures with the indicators to look for (like... "there is a crack between columns 3 and 4 in the Lincoln Memorial"). You might find some answers there!
