    Canadian and U.S. coins and paper money; World coins. Especially like to coin roll hunt cent rolls. Errors in all categories.
  1. It couldn't be on the die, because it's raised. So it must have been something on the planchet or in the plating.
  2. I saw a similar retained die cud in the gallery another member had posted and it reminded me of mine. I'll have to look up the year because I didn't have the obverse in my pics:
  3. My friend (a dealer) mentioned the same thing. The mint's computer is supposed to reject these. I'm waiting to see if more show up. The funny thing is, that over the last few months, I've probably opened several hundred rolls and found none. It's just the last batch that we got from the bank that had the two rolls that each had blanks (one in one roll and three in the other).
  4. Today, I cracked open another new bank roll of 2010 quarters and found three more blank planchets! Now this has me wondering how many are out there. I have yet to hear of any others being found on any of the forums and now I have four of them.
  5. While going through a dealer's bargain lot, I found this beauty. 1952-1962 Sociedad Numismatica De Mexico medal. I thought it was pretty cool because it related to coin collecting. It cost $5. The bonus is..... it's 28g. of .925 silver!
  6. The lighting has a lot to do with the way it looks in the pic. In hand, it appears smooth and shiny.
  7. I found this in a brand new roll of 2010 quarters. My first blank planchet:
  8. I'd love to collect the other Dali medals especially the ones he was commissioned to make for Israel but they aren't cheap so it would have to be a concentrated effort for me to spring for them.
  9. LOL! and I fear you might be right. I've already gotten the "ancients" bug. so I'll never say never.
  10. I'm not a medal collector but when I spotted these two a couple of months ago, I had to have them.
  11. The "striations" is commonly called "wood graining". Improper mixing of the alloys. I love these and keep all I find.
  12. You might also want to contact Mike Diamond (Pres. of CONECA) who is the authority on error coins along with Ken Potter who is also a member there (you might have to register): http://board.conecaonline.org/index.php
