    I found a few 2020's. It's called tilted partial collar.

    I would not label that as a broadstruck coin. I think @Mark68 is correct with his labeling. A broadstruck coin should have no reeding on it. JMO.

    You need to set your goals a lot higher than a broadstrike for it to be a "White Whale".

    the last ones at auction went for 125.00
    275.00 650.00
    1250
    so>> i did not want to pay more than 80.00, call it an pricing rarity or whatever, for me i have been hunting this coin for 12 months now and finally got it, for me, white whale, as being rare and limited, i will never be posting 10 million dollar coins all it takes is money ( i do not have, lol) so...anyhoo

    I didn't think they got that much of a premium. Nice to know. 20210102_123842.jpg 20210102_123910.jpg 20210102_123928.jpg

    i made 2 0r 4 posts everytine i saw one go for 200 and up, look at my old posts you will see them, prices realised, not offer price, and if in ms-68 and a out of collar they are asking 20-40k for them, no ..

    They can ask anything they want for them, but that doesn't make them worth it.

    JCro57 Making Errors Great Again

    Assessing value is very difficult for errors great and small. Markets change. People's desires change. The more people find more of these, the values change. Also, especially for new collectors, they automatically think "error" equals huge money.
    In addition, I never, ever care what someone is asking for a coin (even if it's an expert). What matters is what someone is willing to buy it for, and unfortunately many inexperienced collectors overpay because they have no idea how to even start go about assessing current values of similar errors. Sometimes even before they figure it out, the market has changed.

    For many the realization and learning experience only comes when they decide to sell it and get only a fraction of what they paid. It is that sobering experience with which they will finally - maybe - begin to learn the tricky, unpredictable, and unforgiving nature of buying/selling Mint errors.

    if people are bidding them that high, then it is apparently what they are worth, not one, but at least 8 have gone 200 or more, i am happy, with what i paid, modern errors are super hard to find, mint has tightened their qc to the highest level

    well, these are my personal coins, i sell regular coins, mostly high grade moderns, 1930 and up, errors i love and will probably die with, then someone will spend them, as pocket change, after they pry open 5,000 2 x 2's, lol hopefully they will realize they are worth many times face, if not, who cares, not i , i will be feeding the worms, or hopefully cremated and on to the next life..another quarter, 3 more lives??

    So, you are saying that an out of collar or partial collar in MS68 is being bid to 20 40K. I am not talking about an MS68. 200 dollars is the approximate value that the TPG's will put as a value for the coin.
    You really aren't paying anything for the error.

    actually 80 k the highest, sorry!

    You missed my point John. At 200 for a MS68 is reasonable. That is the approximate value of a MS68 quarter.

    Broadstruck or not I like it. You may realize a loss now but if you seal it, show it, and enjoy it, your heirs, and perhaps you, may enjoy the profit later. Thanks for sharing, good luck.

    I am not an error coin collector and am no versed in the terminology. Can you give me (in plain english), what is "Broadstruck"? It sounds ominous. Is there a source that will have the definition of coin errors? Is it readily available? I am tremendously impressed by the "verbage" that is being bantered around in Coin Talk. Is there a guide that has definitions of words that are used in the Numismatics vernacular? My wife was a High School Senior English Teacher for over 30 years and even she is at a loss of some of the terms being used. I was a CPA, working for the State of North Carolina about 30 years. When we talk, some of the words/terminologies that she uses have to be looked up in Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary. I apologize from my frankness. I think that Coin Talk is the best way to learn about coins and coin collecting. I've only been a member a short time and I am anxious to see the latest entries. I am grateful to your patience and your "love" of learning, especially about coins. If I have said or written on this site, I apologize for anything I said. You may not have your doctorate from an accredited institution of higher learning, but what you say will educate the members of Coin Talk so that they will understand the ins and outs of coin collecting.
    Again, I want to thank all of you for the information you give us and the means of which we can learn.
    Thank you, one and all.
