1981 error mint sets Oct 23 1981 P filled Quarter Cleft lettering.
Hi I have 12 mint sets mailed Oct 23 1981 that are exactly the same error look closely
the letters are cleft some of mine into the rim and thay are all in original mint cello. Worn UGH! this is an error and there must of been many on October 23rd everyone I know with whole Boxes of them show the same error. look at the word LIBERTY or the date they are not formed correctly like a double Press or too much pressure.
Thake a very close look these are all different coins from the 12 mint sets I had never opened till this last week. :hail:
Full Sets 4 & 2 Each 1981 Mint set Unc.
I do not understand your comment AWORDCREATED I have a poor microscope camera the automatic led's make photos hard in packing.
My phone is much better as a Camera, I paid $6.30 bucks each for them. the coin value face is only $4.82. Yep I was ripped off by 14.80 on this deal. No shipping cost was involved, Local.
Thank you for taking time to look I got mixed up once I began to compare each to the other. While new I am enjoying everyone and their unique view point. I see this as an amazing Forum! That is why I knew I had not posted front and back of any. I had made that mistake on the 1971 S so was giving all a better look.
I added a few to see if anyone notices anything that helps me understand the how's and why's on these 10 sets. Also, because the 1971 lesson on the Denver set not being pictured caused confusion.
Thank you all so very much. I am amazed at the knowledge on display in this Forum and Threads. It seems some folks are really spirited and excited in these discussions. I am sure this is because they know much more than me on many topics I had never considered. Every answer is cherished as it is a person saying what they think. My Dad was always one to debate as he will take an opposing position which helps us both be stronger. Look How many folks are here. WOW I AM THANKFUL AND IMPRESSED.
This is unusual, but I have to disagree with Conder.
Since the design (date) is incuse in the die, it is not likely to have chipped.
More likely, it is a result of a greased die.
But a greased die would remove the mintmark, not fill it in...I would either go with die chip or die wear.
What should I do with these? Advise?
I am really not aware of what make 10 for 10 quarters close to the same yet each different that came in a row in 2 mint boxes of 5 sets each. So October 23, 1981, something was wrong with 10 sets in a row. I would love to know what yet seem to get no understandable to me a small collector whom does not usually see any error coins.
I Just never opened them, Yet was quite surprised when I did. I appreciate your opinion. It helps me do what I must.
Your best bet is pictures of the coin and creating your own thread featuring them and your questions about it. Reviving an old thread and it's posts that were in regards to different coins isn't likely to garner as many views as a new one would.
