What should I be looking at?
He lied, unfortunately...
there are letters in his coat
Letters with an original Gettysburg Address?
That would be worth a million.
He might have told you that to get you out of his shop.
Perhaps the OP could explain exactly what she's seeing and where she's seeing it?
Stop looking for errors! Start looking for coins!
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 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!
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.
The stuff on the lapel?
