    rickmp Frequently flatulent.

    They are pretty well hidden. I can't see anything out of the ordinary.
    What should I be looking at?

    He might have told you that to get you out of his shop.

    Come on, gentlemen... let's be fair here. She's new and we don't know exactly what "numismatist" means in this case. Perhaps if the OP would clarify and explain exactly what this person is, it would shed much needed light upon the subject. From the outside looking in, this very much reminds me of past experiences where someone pretended to be something they're not, and in the process wrong mislead an innocent party.

    Perhaps the OP could explain exactly what she's seeing and where she's seeing it?

    Stop looking for errors! Start looking for coins!

    With something like this, members can't help but get a little silly. We would like to help but really have no idea as to what you see. Let us know what you think it is and where you see it.

    The real problem is that we get far too many people here who don't know squat about errors, but never ever take the time to learn about the minting process. Nope! Instead of learning about the minting process, first, they expect us to answer billions of questions about coins "they have never seen before"! It's not that a lot of members on these forums don't want to help, but it really seems futile when they have to answer the same questions over and over and over and over and over and over again.

    I'd give you $50 for it. Probably could get more on ebay though after you get it graded. Send it to PCGS ASAP!

    The OP has moved on to start another stupid thread.

    I agree, but everyone deserves a little decency until their true motives become clear. Give her a chance! The crap this poor girl has gotten from otherwise decent members is both sad and is another black eye on this forum (not so much you, but a few other BS posts).

    Post anything short of lauding some schmo for copying the work of genuinely talented others, and half the forum erupts in tears, yet a newbie comes to ask a few very simple questions and not only gets treated like trash, openly mocked? Great job, fellas!

    These sorts of inquiries tend to fall into three general categories:

    1. People who actually examine a large amount of coinage, know something about the subject and want some intelligent help.

    2. People who are curious as to something they found and want a quick view of whether they have anything worth pursuing.

    3. Trolls who get some kind of kick out of yanking our chains.

    I figured out what the OP is seeing. Go back to the original image. From just "north" of the very center, follow the lighter line down to the 4 o'clock position on the rim. The image would have to be much larger and more distinct to get an analysis. There are several shapes there which look like letters, notably a distinct L. But the image falls far short of what's necessary.
