    I am not an error collector, but I know when I see something extremely uncommon.
    I don't usually post images of coins that aren't mine, but this one needs to be shared.
    I know there are quite a few examples of struck through thread and other debris, but I have never see one this extreme.
    I put in a hefty bid not knowing if I was way too high, and I still didn't win it.
    Final price was $407. I still bet that was a good deal.

    What do you error folks think about this? Should I have went $450?
    Will I be regretting this for a long time?

    Undoubtedly one of the finer strike throughs in the Kennedy series. Covers lots of real estate and adds plenty of character, while not obscuring much of the design. A real eye-catcher!

    Very cool one of a kind coin. It's always sort of a crapshoot as to what to bid, you never know what these will go for in an auction.

    Very cool!

    It looks like a hangman's noose. Dallas was still considered the Wild West back then. I guess Oswald should consider himself lucky that Ruby shot him before they could put it around his neck.

    With errors, sometimes it is impossible to put an accurate price on a piece. Sometimes I have gotten spectacular errors for almost nothing, other times, heating bidding wars shoot the price extremely high.

    Someone else probably wanted it more... I think even if you went $450, you may not have won the coin.
