    Hey guys! I recently was able to start my own collection after being inspired by my grandfather's amazing collection and I'm still learning all the different kinds of errors. I wanna get more into selling, trading and accumulating all kinds of errors and what not.

    This first quarter is .2 grams lighter than average and feels a tiny bit rough compared to a normal quarter and it's much darker. The "T" in trust is completely smoothed over. 20210302_094655.jpg 20210302_094642.jpg 20210302_094600.jpg

    This next quarter looks like all the text around the circle are being smudged up towards the rim on both sides.

    This penny has some kind of extra circle outside the rim on both sides.

    This penny along with a few others I have found, have some kind of oily or greasy textre on the entire coin on both sides. (Teied cleaning, it's definitely embeded in the material.) 20210302_095934.jpg

    This coin also has an odd texture of a series of lines across both sides. I have a few of these from different years, tried cleaning one and it's also definitely apart of the material or manufacturing error, whatever you guys call it.

    I would like anyone's opinion on this dime, I feel it's a true cud because the rim follows the warp, but I would love second opinions. I have more I would like to share, but I reached my limit for this post. Any helpful tips, advice, input or opinions would be really appreciated!

    This one looks like a double die, but it's hard for me to tell because I don't have one of those close cams and I have astigmatism in one eye. 20210302_100408.jpg 20210302_100411.jpg 20210302_100426.jpg

    One thing that you are gonna need to do to get the best help is crop your photos and take them from directly above.

    The Dime is PMD - Post Mint Damage
    Not a mint error of any kind.

    First, welcome to the neighborhood, Neky!

    It is usually best if you limit each thread to only one coin. There will be less confusion that way, and it is more likely that responders will go into greater detail in their explanations.

    Since you're new to numismatic errors, it might be a good idea for you to learn how coins are made. For every true error you might find, there are millions of coins floating around that have been damaged in circulation.

    A warm welcome to CT @NekyZero. Thank you for posting photos in Full Image, but as said above, cropping them to show just the coin would really help. There are several free apps online that allow you to do so if you don't already have an app. Good luck.
