    Hey everyone, I found this in my pocket change jar today. I was hoping someone could tell me if this is the error coin Ive read about. I realize the picture isn't the best but it is pretty hard to get a clearer shot, my camera wont focus on copper coins very well.

    The D is very close to touching the 9 and 6 while being slightly closer to the 6.


    I used this as a reference, it says the left is large and right is small, mine is the large I'm 99% sure.


    If this is the coin, does it have any real value or just minimal $2-3? Thanks in advance!

    The mintmark was entered near the date, it happens sometimes. There was a previous post where a few members said they collected them. I doubt there is any premium at all on a circulated 1960D with a MM such as this, but maybe someone knows different...

    What I can tell form the picture it looks like a 1960 D large date. These Mint Mark can be very close on some coins it is not uncommon.

    Yes, it is a large date. The top of the 9 extends above the 1. Dead giveaway.

    Maybe by error coin, you are remembering the article in Coin World on the 1960 D/D small over large date DDO variety. This isn't that one, but there are numerous mintmark varieties on the 1960 D and 61 D cents.

    Yes I agree a large date The coin unfortunetly has been through hell even if it was an error the value would be a little sorry about that.
