Could be a crack rock . Philly in the 80's was a crazy place AND it would explain the horrible quality control at the mint
lol im really laughing at that comment, maybe thats why the Reagan administration had the war on drugs
That isn't an error. The Mint threw it in for free.
The “W” cent of 1988.
That would go for $5000.00 on etsy.com!
I was thinking the same thing .. icky
what's the error?
there is no error on a coin.
There is a ... something else .. in the packaging.
So what's the value of that "something else" ?
what would you pay for it ?
on another simliar note .... what value do you put on finding hair in your food?
Mint packaging errors do not add any value and many cases, actually reduce the value of the set. Many people buy sets to get 1 of each coin and if, for example there are 2 nickels, but no dime, then the set is worth less to them. Another type of “packaging error” that reduces the value is when the edge of a coin gets caught in the crimping/sealing mechanism, leaving damage.
Your set seems to have a small stone or other type of junk inside. That object can cause a hole in the package resulting in uneven and/or unsightly toning or worse, it could move and cause damage to the coin. IMO, your best bet is to dump this set and get another one.
none but most people also wouldn't slab their peas if they were doubled I wouldn't pay a premium for something like this but let's say if there were 2 of the same coin in the mint cello would you think that would raise the value of the set or make it more collectable?
So ... assume your mint cello has a rare duplicate coin in it. The first question is what do other ones like that sell for?
Then .. could you cut a small sliver into the cello just big enough to extricate the tooth or whatever it is. I think that was be more desireable overall than keeping it in it if one was to sell it. Plus you don't want it in there anyways as it can scratch the coin it is sealed in with.
I have several of the older mint sets but I've had those for years and years and haven't collected any since then other than silver mint sets. So I haven't kept up on valuation of "odd" mint sets out there.
I have no clue if it is possible.
