DEFDAM - Definitely Damaged
Some bored person used a pointy tool such as an awl to make that marking.
Not a Mint Error of any kind.
Worth.. 1 Cent
different from your normal, average, run-of-the-mill Post Mint Damage.
It's like.....Hey....look what I found.
I have a little "Oddities" box where I put stuff like this. Just for fun.
Thanks for posting.
i have had a few people now that you mention it lol
Thank you so much! I will definitely hold on to it. Any advice on how to search for errors? I feel like I don’t know how to go about it, like do I use a magnifying lens for every coin, do I just look for discrepancies? I have yet to find one and feel like I’m going about it all wrong
Man people suck sometimes lol, thank u so much for letting me know.
One of these days I WILL find one lol, thank you so much!
Well, the first thing you should do is get yourself The Red Book. That is the single most useful and informative book anyone who wants to collect coins can get. You can find it on Amazon, either new or used, for as little as about $10 -$15 .
Second, start learning how coins are made and what causes errors in the first place. I will give you links to start reading up on the subject. So will many other members.
Third, and most important, hang out on Coin Talk !! and ask all the questions you want, post as many pictures of your coins that you can, and just "soak up the knowledge" of all of the great members here who are so willing to help others with the myriad of questions concerning Numismatics.
