@Bluntflame - Above the 19 and running northeasterly almost to the rim?
So I am new to this please explain
Look under lamination errors. Your looking at both lost after strike, and retained. But, I'd suggest reading all about lamination errors on there.
@Ridgerunnerras --- also, this is an excellent thread on the topic with maybe my most favorite of all time ever for the rest of my life photograph of a lamination error belonging to @paddyman98. You have to scroll (read) down a bit in that thread to see it. It is crazy. Paddyman tucked something behind the lamination so you can really see how it is separated from the coin.
Welcome to CoinTalk!
(LaCointessa is NOT an expert on anything associated with coins, just sayin')
Ok thanks. Is this a good thing or bad?
(edited to indicate the reverse of the 1945 cent coin.)
Amazing! That's a pretty decent error! My best one is teeny tiny on a common 1964 D silver dime LOL!
With the condition of the coin, it's hard to say. I'd put more on it being a rim ding.
Ohh.. lamination errors are nice to find and keep. I can't tell you how much value they add to your coin. Our experts can give you more information on that. I am not interested in monetary value much...just on being able to recognize what I am seeing.
I think folks are raiding their piggy banks and penny jars during this pandemic.
(and that's definitely PMD (rim ding) on that '45)
Yes...and thinking about it more, I seem to remember that for it to be a cud, it must touch some part of the field? I have been away from CT far too long. Time to relearn what I forgot.
I thought it may be the start of a cud, BUT looking closely there appears to be an indent on the edge below the lump, indicating movement of metal from the edge. Without seeing the edge of the coin properly it's hard to tell.
but she had a closet full of very old mason jars that were full of cents. i mean a closet full. a big closet.
i asked her why she had so many.
she said: well, at the time, the war ended, and i wanted to gather 1 cent for every american that died, and i was going to take them to arlington. but doing it became very depressing, and i just put them away.
when she died, she still had them. they were delivered to arlington on her behalf. she had lived to be 102 and died last nov.
she never complained about a darn thing except about me.
she often said the happiest she had ever been was going to union station on a daily basis welcoming the troops home. she said she also got a lot of dates that way...her irish humor.
just another facet of why cents are saved.
i love your story, @charley -
i'm sorry that she only complained about you, though... :-(
Can you tell us the part about how the coins were delivered to Arlington?
Did they like the idea and what will they do with them?
sorry about the passing of your Mom.
My Mom passed away 2 years ago, 2 days from now.
