    Hello,

    I recently started back in to coin collecting. I have recently purchased a grab bag of random coins from around the world. In the two purchased, I've actually had luck with a 1859 French Centime and a few other cool gems.

    This brings me to this next coin in question. I'm seeking the help of anyone able to properly identify the authenticity and verify that I am actually seeing what I think I'm seeing. The pictures below show what I've noticed so far. Also this is a Newfoundland coin.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Your coin looks like it could have a bit of a Lamination type defect near the T.
    I think your photo is Scoped In a little to much.

    Here's the best I can do. I ordered a usb one so if this doesn't help, then it'll have to wait a little while. I also traced out something new I just noticed, there seems to be a circle just on top the T of cent. I'll include a photo where I trace what I can see better with my eye than what my crappy smartphone camera can. Sorry...I tried.

    I'm still leaning towards the lamination. The Lump is a little perplexing, looks more like die damage. The circle can be part of the lamination error.

    Do you see the double die on the base of the 1 though? That's what I'm really trying to confirm. The crack is just something odd I discovered after I had better tools to view it. I'm also using it to examine a 1943 Steel Penny I have that may be double died on the date. These are my tools I have on hand right now.

    Would you recommend I go through sending it in to get it graded? I don't have an account yet. And yeah I saw that, I just wanted to see if I truly had a double die variety.

    I do not recommend sending to grading.
