    Hi there, thank you for your time. I love to collect 1943 steels...anyway, I have found one with the mint mark touching the year...in the attached video I show normal 1943 steels and I show you what I'm asking about.
    Tell me what you think, thanks again!

    I said silver early in the video, I meant steel.

    The mint marks were hand-stamped into each die, so it can be close to the date, touch the date, or be about anywhere in that small area under the date. Only repunched mint marks are really collectible.

    Sorry. It's normal to find the mint mark in different places.

    Suggestion.. Ask us first what the issues are on your coins then decide if it is worth it to make a YouTube video or not. Your videos can cause confusion to new collectors. There are to many of those already!

    It's good that you are excited about collecting and finding errors and varieties but slow down a bit.. No need for the videos yet.

    The YouTube post is gone so I know even less than what others were able to see.

    Another useless YouTube video with misinformation. Sir, your video is absolutely useless when the viewer can't even see the mint mark. Oh yeah, you also wait to the end to correct yourself, letting the novice viewer think you really have "silver" cents. I suggest you educate yourself before making any more videos. If you had, you would have known what TheFinn stated in post #3 is the case and saved yourself the time and trouble. BTW welcome to CT, I think.
