Hello, This is my first post. I came across a Eisenhower Copper Bicentennial Dollar Coin. When I examined it there seems to be a mint mark but it's located under the bust but to the far Right, not closer to the left as it is seen in photos of the coin. Is this an error? I'm including a picture. It was part of a bag of 40 Eisenhower Dollar Coins I found while cleaning out my parents home.
This is my first post in this forum about the Presidential Medal of AppreciationTM medal series. Numismatic discoveries have been limited to the physical identification of a new error, new variety, or newly found hoard. The discovery of an entirely undocumented U.S. Mint series is virtually unheard of in U.S. numismatics; however, this seemingly impossible feat has been achieved. An entire U.S. Mint series has been discovered and cataloged for the very first time. This U.S. Mint series consist of 22 medal types. The medal series are separated into 5 Classes. Below are the Class 2 Eisenhower Medals (designed by Frank Gasparro and struck at the Philadelphia Mint). Exact mintage of each of the Class 2 medals are known. Exact inventory of those melted are known. I'm interested in repatriating these medals from the nations in which President Eisenhower awarded these medal in. The diameter of the medal is 38.1 mm (same size as a US Morgan silver dollar), thickness is 2.98 mm, metal is 0.900 fine silver, and smooth edge. If you have encountered these medals drop me a note.
