Just Damage. Not an error.
Can you provide better pictures of the reverse side?
Try at an angle.
I think you might be wrong this time. I've seen similar large Delaminations before. (Planchet Flaw)
Oh darn! Could it be residue from tape?
One way to find out is to soak it for a few hours in pure acetone. See if the glue/residue comes off...
I agree with paddyman, though. An angle should give us a much better view.
Welcome to CT.
IMO, I think you have a coin that was stuck or taped to something. I'll let the more experienced members make the final determination, though.
Thanks for sharing and welcome to CT!
One of the things I miss from my childhood, getting birthday cards with coins taped on the inside from great grandma.
Coins? I used to get $20 mailed to me in the mail. Boy, you must be older than me?
No, I think it's because my great grandma was at her prime during the great depression. My grandparents were kids during that era as well. And for that reason, those who experienced it first hand tended to keep it living in their memories which in turn impacted what they did for the remainder of their lives. For example, nothing upset my grandparents in the home more then wasting food. Every time I ate a meal at the house where I was serving myself, my grandfather would echo "take all you want but eat all you take". I threw away some food from my plate into the trash once. He looked at me like I had just got caught stealing money or something. I made sure I never did that again. He's not around anymore, but still, to this day, I live by that golden rule.
Yup, I grew up getting a $2 bill in my birthday card from granny, well into the 80's. Looking back on it, it was endearing - something I would remember fondly the rest of my life. As a pre-teen and teenager, though, I was pretty disappointed that it didn't at least move up to a $5 or $10 bill.
The last card I got with money in it from my great grandmother was when I turned 12. She put a $2 dollar bill in it. Getting it, I was then anticipating others to follow. But nope, that was the last time she sent me money in a card. After that it was just cards without any money. Turns out she did that will all her great grandkids. When you got the $2.00 from great grandma, you know that's the last of it.
