    If you want information about your coin, you have to show us your coin, not just a small portion of it. From what you do show, it is nothing more than a combination of ordinary wear and what was probably originally a weak strike. By the way, the term "mule" means the front and back don't belong together, such as a dollar on one side and a quarter on the other.

    That would be more along the lines of "tear" vs. "wear".

    No worries we are all incorrect.
    Maybe you can teach us how 200+ years of numismatics supports your theory.

    He's right about the definition of a mule for a coin.

    As for what coins were being minted, check Google. The information is there.

    You want to learn the correct information. Stop saying they are incorrect.

    If you keep doing that the members will start ignoring you.

    I didn't mean that in a bad way at all I'm not a negative person I was just trying to express my opinion that that one lady had that 1990 I think it was Penny and it was only on the front and they called them you will so I'm confused again

    I am all for hunting oddities on our coins. Just let me say this.... Billions and billions of coins are struck and released into circulation every year. That means that each of these coins travel a different path through the course of their life. Each subjected to it's own use and/or abuse. When you view a coin that appears may have an anomaly, try to be subjective enough to realize that it has been dropped, kicked, ran over, covered in soda, hit by a lawnmower.... Or any of an untold myriad of conditions. Once you rule all that out, then if you still see an anomaly, you probably have something.

    Amen. I'm up for that simply because he never uses punctuation. Very annoying to read when people use talk-to-text
