Yours is one of over 1 billion minted. Congratulations.
How do I know if this is the error coin or a Phiilly mint.
Why would you think it is an error coin?
Was pretty sure that would be the answer. Do you know I would know if it was a Denver with mint. Trying to learn.
I seen that there was a 64 nickel on the error list for not having a mint mark. Philly usually doesn't so I was assuming it was a Denver mint. How would I tell the diffetence?
Honestly, I've never heard of what you are talking about.
That being said, over 1 billion...WITH A "B"...were minted. What makes you think that you have a potentially 1 in over a billion coin? Philly did not have a mint mark in 1964. Denver had a "D" to the left of Monticello on the reverse. Yours does not. Yours is a normal Philly minted nickel. Period. Sorry.
Sorry, you seem to be confused. Where did you see something about a 1964 error nickel? As far as I know there was a 1964 nickel from Philadelphia with no mint mark and a 1964 nickel from Denver with a D mint mark.
Common nickel, not worth more than 5 cents. That's a spender.
2.8 Billion minted. Man that is a high mintage and bound to create errors.
Yeah. But clearly, OPs is not an error. Don't give false hope.
Go through 2.8 billion coins and you might find a few. New collectors need to be steered clear of this nonproductive hunting for “errors.”
You're right. Lots of them here.
Welcome to CT. Other posts have said how to determine if you have Denver or Philly coin.
I'm not sure where your getting your info on rare 1964 errors, but if it's you tube, stop watching it immediately. Most videos are by people who just want clicks and are filled with misinformation, and important missing details. It's too bad because it's nearly impossible for a new collector to find the few good ones through the thousands of crappy ones
Btw. The 1964 nickel you may have heard as being rare were from the estate of a former mint director. The were found years later and have all been authenticated and in TPG holders. None ever entered circulation. That's a detail that the YouTube videos conveniently forget to mention
If it has a P mint mark then it's an error
If it has a P on it’s damage
Now thats funny.
I have a 1964 Jefferson nickel minted from the Zephyr Hills mint in Florida that was open for 2 minutes. But it is missing the "Z" mintmark.
