    1926 liberty peace dollar, , I found this coin in a casing that says err on it. The coin has some pressed edges. Ive tried googling but not enough info. The edges are cut or something but all the vertical lines are all in tact on every "dent". Anybody seen this before or know the value?

    That's in no way a mint error, it's post mint damage and unfortunately it pretty much renders the coin worth it's silver melt value

    It took some hits to the rim, including one particularly hard one. Not uncommon with larger, heavier coins like this. Somebody probably dropped it onto a hard surface like concrete at one point.

    But all the lines are intact and show no pressure almost like it was made and then the outer "design" lines were added last. You'd think if it struck something hard enough to dent it, the lines would be smushed. But they're not. They follow the same pattern as the rest of the outer coin.

    It's 92 years old (oops, edited 98). how many times have you ever dropped a coin?
    Now drop a really heavy coin and see what happens.

    Learn the minting process to understand what can and can't be a mint error.
    Then remember that coins go into circulation to be used as, get this ... money.

    And all other things. I used to use coins in a hammering process as it's cheaper than the blanks I had to buy .. the blanks are worthless after they get dinged/bent but the coins were still worth face value. :)

    Damage can be caused so many different ways.. I also agree.. not a Mint Error

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    @TraceIzKong616 If you look at the obverse (heads side) you can where the metal has been displaced over the B in LIBERTY. This was caused when the rim was dropped and dented. This could not have happened during the minting process.

    Like everyone else stated, the pics you posted do NOT reveal it to be an error coin - it just took a hit.

    That said, you did not include a pic of the reverse (the tails, or eagle side). Perhaps someone labeled it an error because of that side. Still doubtful, but you should always include pics of ALL 3 sides (obverse, reverse & edge) of any coin you post.

    Btw, welcome to CT! Like your avatar!

    A heads up, @TraceIzKong616, for the future if you are looking for coins with errors: if you DID have a valuable coin and hold it like your photos are indicating, you would more than likely reduce the value. Your fingers will leave prints because of the oil; hold coins by the rim only to avoid that.

    And welcome to CT!
