    :rollling: Yes that is me the newbie. Yes an old retired Curmudgen, Scratching his head.
    Duh!
    I :) purchased a ANACS Graded MS63 75% Off Center misstrike, did not pay much but then again I am not able to find out much either.
    Can some one help with this? The coin does not show a date! Who would pay to have this coin graded? I guess it is worth something or is it? I read about misstrikes but nothing mentions dateless coins. HUM!
    Yes this is the story of my life and that is how I have been fortunate to learn so much in life, no matter how much I learn there will always be plenty more to learn. :D

    Depends on the grade. Are we talking Wheat or Memorial reverse? Dated off-center strikes are actually worth more than dateless ones. People like to know what they are getting as a lot of collectors collect certain years and/or mint marks.

    Well, off-center strikes are worth more if they show a date. Of course, to get a really good idea of value, we'll need a picture -- or, at least, some indication of what kind of coin it is. :)

    People would pay to haev it slabbed, (verifying genuineness), more than the grade. I find slabbing a coin to verify authenticity a good strategy, grades not so much.

    There are some good error people here who if you post a pic can help you out more.

    I could have sworn I read Cent somewhere in there, but maybe that's just me being incredulous that people actually collect others. :devil:

    I hear ya. I still cannot figure out why someone wishes to collect a coin struck by a machine!
