    Good morning. I would like for some to take a look at my 1958 Nickel coin. I am new to coin collecting and I noticed on the letter ‘U’ of Trust that there is something weird going on there. Maybe I am seeing things.

    So, let me get this straight. You aren't interested in coin collecting, you are interested in coin selling. Since that is the case, maybe you should have registered on eBay rather than CT. ~ Chris

    Something sure is happening on the U in the word TRUST. It's called damaged followed by years of circulation.

    Welcome. I see you are new to collecting. What are your collecting interests? Are you working on any sets?

    I have no idea where to start. I love all the different types of coins. Which set and years should I start at?

    If you are interested in errors, You should start by buying books on errors, joining CONECA, and disabling you tube from your computer. Damage does not improve the value of a coin, if it did, you could make your own, but then, so could everyone else.

    Do as @Badger Mint recommends and also...
    ...get a Yeoman Red Book.
    ...read how dies are made at doubleddie.com...
    ...learn what real errors are at error-ref.com...
    ...for Lincolns: lincolncentresource.com.

    Start your search for sets with one you will have success with, like a range of 50’s wheats, or 60’s nickels. You will find many coins are collectible if they have survived circulation with minimal wear.

    Ultimately, it’s your collection...collect what you like and have fun while you do. Stay away from You Tube, eBay and Etsy and you will do good...Spark

    Only if you can find one of those guys P. T. Barnum used to talk about. Should be a lot of them around, he said there was born every minute.

    One of the best books is "the Modern Minting Process & U.S. Minting Errors & varieties". Available from ANA as a correspondence course. I ordered this a few years ago and just recently re-ordered the new version. Good to have on hand, answers a lot of questions.

    Buy a Redbook, of US coins. Browse through it and see what interests you. Beyond US coins there are world coins and ancient. Many ways to go, whatever peaks your interest.
