Newfoundland 1946, 10 cent error


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

This is my first post. A Newfoundland 1946 10 cent coin recently came into my collection that I believe may be an error minting. Find attached photos of this coin, note the top of the coin on both the face and reverse.








Thank you for your time,

I don't know about others, but I've been collecting for 50 years. If you want my opinion, great. If you don't, that's fine with me too.

Kinda sounds like unless you take it from a fresh roll from the mint the people on this board wont say it's an error

But it does look like damage too me too


There's nothing wrong with circulated errors - they do exist, but errors are usually spotted pretty quickly, even by non collectors, so running into a circulated error is unusual, with the exception of rotated dies errors, which are sometimes encountered in very low grades.


On the other hand, ones coins are "out there", there's lots that can happen to make it look like there may be some sort of problem/flaw/error. The most common example is coins (particulary quarters) that have been used in slot machines often have their reeding worn off, leading a non-collector to think that it may be some sort of plain edge error.
