    I enjoy looking for chips gouges and cracks. I think I like it just because you can find them all the time. Sure it would be nice to find that 43 copper penny but reality is probably not. Alot of these chips can be seen just looking at change when you get it like this one. Its really fun (for me at least) when I get one like this that has 2 chips in the same word. Sure it has no real premium but I dont care at all. Not in this on a daily basis for the premium! 2X2 for this 2015P! Looks like a chip on the "e" in liberty too but I cant tell for sure. Unfortunately, lots of PMD.

    Liberty looks like a Die Chip also.
    Nice find.

    That's a nice find and two chips in the same word is even better. I'd be keeping that one for a long time.

    One of my favorite "errors" in my collection is actually a series of cracks. I got a roll of new UC pennies a few years ago or so and noticed a crack in the shield. As I kept going through the roll I noticed the same crack on quite a few. I identified I think about 30 of the coins with the same crack BUT at various stages in the crack. It was so cool to put them in a line and kind of watch the progression. Went from small to large....all being visible without a scope which made it even better.
