    Found this last night while looking through a bunch of coins. Limited knowledge on coins. I've just recently started to look and pay attention to the coins I come across. Any help, advice, ideas, or opinions, would be extremely helpful and much appreciated! Thanks all! 20201202_082539.jpg 20201202_082447.jpg 20201202_082402.jpg 20201202_082219.jpg

    Usually that kind of "wear" is above the bus of pluribus and over the S of A (states of america) .....my experience...

    Welcome to CT @Dorian Thomas. There are a lot of knowledgeable members here that can be very helpful, especially to new collectors. If you follow this forum for a little while, you can learn a lot.
    Advice to new collectors are usually, "Buy the Red Book," for the information on U.S. coins (ignore the prices. They are already out of date). Never clean a coin. Handle it by the edges to prevent fingerprints. And when you have questions you'd like answered, post good Full Image photos here with clear questions. Good Luck

    My usual post about posting photos:
    You should always post in focus FULL IMAGE photos (after you upload your photo, two buttons appear: Thumbnail and Full Image, click Full Image and your photo appears full size on your post and is easily enlarged by clicking on it). Photograph coins on neutral backgrounds like black, grey, or white. Crop out superfluous background so just the coin shows, and post photos with correct orientation so members don't have to turn their computer in some awkward fashion to view it properly. While it isn’t always necessary, it is nice to show both the obverse and reverse, even if your question is just about one side. Members can often give more valuable information having both sides to evaluate. Add close ups of areas you have questions about and make your questions as definitive as possible so we know what you are asking for. And try to have the best lighting possible to show the most favorable photo of the coin.

    Just minted from a worn die, so it's normal. Welcome to CT.
