    Can someone please let me know what I got and it’s worth? It appears that the word “liberty” from the dime is ever so faint. Also the very center of the coin is imprinted to the size of a dime! Any comments are appreciated!
    Thanks 8CB68D62-A0D9-473D-A976-1CA59F73A815.jpeg 8726EEEA-B6A8-4A99-BF45-7D353EE81E83.jpeg 9988E3C8-2FB3-47CF-8365-9B269FBEF855.png 3CF9EF9C-2284-48DA-8751-2E6C83F545E0.jpeg 0A37DB27-E617-4724-891C-631E93E75665.jpeg A44DCD0A-BD0A-4AFF-84E9-2CDAD2344B2A.jpeg 984FE947-7CED-499C-9B93-4620A6D472C4.jpeg 2AAA19FE-7A3E-4B15-963C-375A5B10268A.jpeg 53BD19F0-F615-4C3D-ABB0-8D2BCB900B11.jpeg

    Well, I fail to see what you are seeing. Assuming it's not a spoof coin, what I do see is an extremely abused & corroded zinc cent, on its last legs, so to speak. It has the appearance of exposure to something acidic & perhaps at the same time, it was nestled against another coin.

    It appears the copper is starting to peal away along the entire edge on the obverse. You would be well advised to spend it before it completely disintegrates into thin air.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

    1986 penny MAJOR ERROR= No

    Dime= No

    It's a damaged coin. It happened after it left the mint.

    Not a major mint error..
    Just a corroded cent.
    Just garbage!.. Not even worth 1 cent.

    You need to learn what true mint errors are.. Don't assume that something that looks different or strange is automatically an error :facepalm:

    I think I am getting a rash just looking at it.

    It’s worth 1 Cent. If you’re lucky.

    Seeing the "1986 penny MAJOR ERROR" title to this thread, I somehow accurately guessed what I would see when I opened it.

    Damage is not an error.
    Damage is much more common than real errors.
    Most real errors have a little value, but not a lot.

    Sadly its physical value is closer to 1/2 cent.
    You might be able to pass it off as change and still get full value.

    It probably costs more to make then it's original face value. :woot::yack:
