    Hi it's me again.

    I'll be posting coins off and on over the next few weeks tons of them.

    Asking for your forgiveness now.


    Here is the first. Found this quarter at the bottom of my purse and thought well why not. It looks to be an error on the obverse in a round centered cut. Perhaps next coin was to be a dime? Or maybe the cut away from the tail?

    What do you think? Worthy of keeping or trying to sell? Oh and there appears to be something right unDer the bust maybe initials or maybe crud left over? 20160917_102225.jpg 20160917_102246.jpg 20160917_102314.jpg 20160917_102812.jpg 20160917_102636.jpg

    I would have agreed but look at the letters it is as if the letters were cut into it after the circle was made

    Hang on I just got one from a roll of quarters that is in great shape but has the circle cut on it. Something is up with this one.

    Was it at the end of the roll? That circle is rolling machine damage.

    Yes Coin Rolling Machine.

    On another question, why do you think "Perhaps next coin was to be a dime?"

    You might want to learn how coins are made first. Otherwise you might thing tons of things are errors when they are not. And need to identify when wear and tear is simply wear and tear and not an error.

    Just by them being in your purse can cause a lot of scratches and can affect letters and dates and mint marks being scraped and damaged. Learn how to identify damage which has infinite possibilities.
