    Not sure what type error this is but assuming its a error that involved another coin. Maybe a dime. It's a 2007D and all the lettering in on the reverse looks all doubled. What do you the experts recommend I do with it and what type error would this be called. I also would like to know what it was struck with.

    Looks like a small simple planchet anomaly.

    It's a zinc Cent and the coin has been damage after it left a mint, Not an error. Spend it.

    I am seeing similar error coins like this through PCGS. Not perfectly the same but very similar. I have a new camera on my phone that allows me to get much closer on my end and freeze the zoomed image. Would better photos change things?

    I assure you you're not seeing the
    same or similar coins 'through PCGS'

    As posted, your cent is a damaged coin,
    and not an error of any kind.

    Everything 'different' about it occurred
    after it was already in circulation.

    One last thing. Through my eyes I am seeing similar coins through PCGS. I would have not made this statement nor would I have posted it. I assure you in my view I am seeing not perfectly the same but strikingly similar. I am not saying that your opinion of the posted coin is not true. I am saying that there are coins Out there that have very similar damage that is caused by the mint. And reality is that no one damaged coin that takes place at the mint facility or post mint damage is going to be the same. The nature of the indentations on both sides of this coin make it difficult for me understand what and how the coin could have been damaged in the Manor that it is. And I am sure one can argue the same in reference to it being damaged by the mint. I just want a 100% confirmation that it's not damage created at the mind.

    I can state with 100% certainty, and confirmation:

    "It is 100% certain that it is not damage created at the Mint"

    (in case that's a bit confusing, it is 100% certain that it IS damage,
    created OUTSIDE of the Mint)

    There is no confusion here. I was raised to double and triple check to be sure of things. Especially when it involves lack of knowledge and understanding on my part. And money is involved.

    There is nothing in the process of minting coins of any type, size or denomination that can cause anything like this. As stated, it was damaged after it left the Mint.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    You may be thinking of a capped die strike through error. As you learn more about errors and how coins are made, you'll understand why this is completely different from your coin.

    This pic is from error-ref.com. One of the gentlemen that responded to your post also happens to be one of the editors of that site. A nice thing about the CT forum is you can get answers from knowledgeable collectors and some of the leading hobby experts.

    That is great to hear. I am still at the learning stages and have been collecting log. Maybe two years! How ever I have learned a lot and have collected scores of high grade new and old coins. I desided to just hang on to tem, wrap them up, put them away in some orderly fashion tell I am more experienced.
    In light of my digital personality I though it might be a good idea to comment that I have several years as a Corperate level trainer and I tend to get frustrated when I ask a question or need input on a subject when I'm given a response with little information she trying get over the beginner blues. And the stupid question Is the one that is not asked. Aside that i know own as ND operate heavy equipment so the question not asked could cost a life. Not so critical in the coin world but tends to be equally frustrating.

    you may want to reference what you are seeing on PCGS. Then one can more accurately tell you what the differences are.

    You are seeing something "similar" ... though, not exactly. Numismatics isn't horseshoes .... looking "close to something" usually isn't.

    One of the best way to learn more is to document what you see and compare it to other stuff you see. Create your own knowledgebase. As time goes on you'll gain experience and be able to understand what you see versus other comparisons.

    You need to remember that members are helping for free and they may not have time for a detailed explanation. Or the same question may have been asked numerous times.

    Plus, don't expect a detailed explanation when a coin is damaged. There are countless ways for a coin to become damaged. However, many members of coin talk have spent decades studying numismatics and the minting process. The minting process is well documented, so with experience, you can determine with a reasonable certainty what can and cannot occur at the mint.
