Talk About One Major Error Coin

 

Bought This Coin Over a year ago In this Condition For $7.00

 

Never Been Cleaned

 

So far the Coin Has The following Errors on it

 

A die crack,rotated die,metal alignment

 

And Maybe a Few More

 

The grade I've been told is Fine

Ok,

 

Bad try at an attack LDM

 

Error #1-Die Crack

 

Error #2 and #4 - rotated die

 

Error #3- Unknown (Best guess Die Fill)

 

Taking this Coin to the Shop For a 7th Look Over By EXPERTS

 

So Far they Agree that It's A Error Coin With At Least Three Errors on it

 

But Who knows They Might Find Some More Errors

 

Oh yes It was already in this shape when i bought the coin in 2004

all minor errors......where you got "major mint error" is beside me. die rotation errors only really command a premium if the rotation is more then 45 degrees (and those don't look like any rotated dies I have ever seen looks more like die gouges) ...die cracks and filled dies are very common on older coins...

 

and I bet you bored those "experts" to death after the 2nd time let alone the 7th...and it wasn't an attack just learn your coin terms before you use them....that is a minor error.....major mint errors are things such as off centers, broadstrikes, double strikes, brockages and so on.

Ok,

 

Thanks For pointing that out

 

I'm Not all that good With Error terms And The Rare And Common Errors Either

 

Thanks For Your Input LDM

 

I'll Edit The Major Out Of The topic and Input Minor

 

Oh Also What Happens to a coin With Improper Metal Mixure?

 

Could these Errors Affect The Value of the Coin or Not?

Improper metal mixture is just that metals that are not mixed properly.....when metals are mixed they try to take all the impurities out....or unwanted stuff.....sometimes they don't do such a good job when the strips are made for punching....sometimes other "stuff" gets into the planchets causing things like laminations.
