Always interesting to me how we come in possession of these (or any mint error) and how they actually make it into the public domain.
$2-3. A 50/50 off center seems to attract the most attention in my experience. Bidding could run up to around $5 based on condition and interest in the auction group. Buying outright from my LCS: $2
The coins above came from a lady that worked at the bank. She opened a bag and saw a ton of error coins and proceeded to sort them out by hand. I'm sure she found most of the errors, especially the more obvious ones. But certainly a few of these oddities made it into rolls passed out by the bank and into commerce. Lucky for us!!
That is stunning! Thanks for that follow-up and explanation!
So what you're saying is, if I see "one" of these in a junk bin at my LCS; he actually has a box of them in the back room!?!?!?
Matrix - I'm mainly a collector (hoarder), but the LCS and members there routinely sell error/variety coins. I'm not sure if they sell on eBay or not since I just visit the store and scoop up what I like when I'm in the mood. But they sell other stuff (under FatherTime I think).
EDITED for language. Please read the rules , no abbrev., symbols, etc. )How did you get so many off-center pennies? Do you work at a money distribution center for banks?
I had the same reaction!
