    Hello everyone
    I have a 1961-D lincoln mem cent with this error on the collar I believe it is. If you look on the back of the coin the slice isn't cut through and it shows like extra metal on the collar as well. Your expert input is greatly appreciated.

    As Ed ( @paddyman98 ) always says, " No error of any kind". I have to respectfully say, Post Mint damage. Looks like it was deliberately cut. JMO. biggrin.gif

    I'm seeing a whole lot of damage on a heavily circulated coin. At least you'll always have the copper value of about 2-3 cents.

    @Jarksmyworld I applaud you for wanting to make a go of your error searching... might I suggest doing a bit of reading on the minting process? I think you will find it will make the search a much more efficient one for you if you can start weeding out the ones that for sure couldn't have happened before leaving the mint.

    It’s worn and it’s damaged. Keep looking.

    The dead giveaway to me is that the damaged area is nice and shiny while the rest of the coin has circulation damage and is corroded to a degree with patina and such. Ask yourself, if this was a mint error where damage happened, how's come the damaged area didn't get corroded with patina and such like the rest of the coin?

    I could be wrong but it really does.
    Curious to hear what everybody that responds think ....

    Unfortunately, it's not the same, doesn't even look the same. On the nickel example above, the "ES" of "STATES", and the "O" of "Of" shows on the piece of material (Rim Burr) that's damaged. This supports the fact that the damage to the rim (Rim Burr) occurred before the die pressed into the material - mint damage. Rim damage after the die pressed into the material - post mint damage.
