wow from me.
@paddyman98 check these out.
I like that one a lot too. I dubbed it the "headbutting Lincoln"
Here was the GTG thread I posted for it earlier
Thanks! It has a nice color to it and is better than the typical MS 62 coin I've seen.
This one also had a GTG thread:
If not, you are well on your way!
Seriously, it appears that you may have the bug, and are a collector of error coins now. You have a nice sub-set started.
@JCro57 find out!
You seem particularly drawn to the off centers. Is there a reason for that? Do you think you might branch into other errors?
Thanks for the reply.
My opinion is that if you enjoy something, you seek out the items you enjoy, keep the items you enjoy, and continue that same routine, that is a "collector".
I think many of us can be called a "collector/hoarder" tho
Errors like these very easily and very often escape the mint in legitimate ways. If you were to open a mint bag, there's a chance you could find a couple off-center, broadstruck, etc. The coin is struck just a bit off center, and is ejected from the coining chamber normally. It then gets bagged up and shipped off like anything else.
It's where you have something like a dime on a nail, that shouldn't ever get through the machinery, that we have a problem.
