Can folks just post in full size I am tired of clicking on photos three times to see them. And a fourth to get back to the thread.
Come on Ya'll it not that hard. Think about it you are the ones asking for help. Don't you think you can post in full size so that it's not a pain in the back side?
Scroll down to Split Plate Doubling on this site: http://lincolncentsonline.com/mechanicalDoubling.html
Also read the part about Mechanical Doubling.
Sorry for that to be apart of your thread, It's not you personally, it's just a frustration.
obviously split plating and all the other problems associated with zincolns that are made for commerce and not for quality collectors.
NVD or No Value Doubling
I was trying to remember that.
NVD, NVD, NVD. Ok I got it.
@PaNT3rA, more to @Pickin and Grinin 's point, on a coin such as a crappy zinc cent, you really only need 2 pics for us to assess...full obverse & full reverse (not thumbnails). That's all that we reasonably need to assess a crappy zinc coin (or any coin for that matter). Sometimes, someone may request additional pics, but rarely...especially on crappy zinc coins.
You probably detect my distain for crappy zinc coins...of my thousands of coins, I only have a few (maybe 3) exceptional specimens...because most are crap. (albeit, there are many who do collect them, & I understand there are special, desirable & costly varieties)
What you see on the cent you posted is the typical substandard manufacture & disintegration of these zinc clad coins, & in fact, that splitting is sometime manifested before it leaves the Mint.
I've been following your posts & appreciate your passion & inquisitive nature. Keep up the search & follow our CT experts to build your knowledge & expertise.
I wrote it down for reference at a later date. lol
Thanks man! That's awesome of you to say! I know the zinc is crappy but that's ok cause I have a small collection of nice coins and to fill in my free time which currently I have a lot, I like to coin roll hunt and then inspect them so I learn what to look for and also I enjoy it and it keeps me busy and out of trouble cause I don't want to go back to the joint! I see a lot of different things and most the time I know what I'm looking at but when I don't and I know something is off I ask you fellas! I appreciate all the input I receive from you guys. I've seen on google a few coin forums and read some posts and found they were all d-bags! So believe me you guys are the best!
P. S. No thumb nails and 2 pics!
Yeah, there may be an occasion when you want to point out something very specific that you see, but generally just a pic of the full coin is adequate. Keep up the search; I have a feeling we're going to see some real good stuff from you!
Thank you very much sir! I have a new microscope due any day now and that should help a lot.
OK, but don't magnify too much - about 10x is all you should need.
5 times is really all you need when looking for varietys. If it takes more than that to see a Doubled Die or RPM, then it is a minor variety and will not be worth the effort. IMO
