  1. Hey man, is it possible you can place a normal dime next to these coins? It'll help us compare them.
  2. I really like the last two, especially the last one.
  3. Without having a reference image in front of me, that looks like a large date
  4. 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.
  5. 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?
  6. 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.
  7. OR Give it to a youngster that has never seen a 50 year old coin with an unfamiliar design (reverse)!
  8. WOW!!! I need to spend more cash!!
  9. Well that's morbid but the obverse is interesting!
  10. Good information. Thank you for sharing.
  11. 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?

    Coin Values

    Welcome to Coinpeople! What a nice find! I haven't seen one of those in years.
  13. Very nice What don't you like about them?
  14. Pennies minted before 1982 are exclusively copper which means they'll stick to a magnet, too.
  15. Hmm... I'm not an error coin expert, but I would pay money for that!
  16. Agree. I didn't even consider that Russia could have coins this old
  17. 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!!
  18. 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!
