    Hello to all who read this! Slowly but steadily - ive been coin collecting for a bit now, and so far - its going alright :angelic:

    Not as many error coins as ive been finding more coins that tend to be older but of a high grade. Some of them im about to share!

    The reason for this post is an attempt reach out to this collecters community, hoping i could get a little advice about these coins and their possible values, and to where i would go about getting them graded, if eligible. Thank you for your time! :)

    So without further a do:

    1982 No Mint Mark/Possible Error

    I noticed a little bubble or something like that, on the reverse side, right below the "E" in "ONE".

    1974 D, High Grade

    The first coin looks to have a tiny die chip. I don't see anything on the rest of the coins.

    I agree with Larry with regards to the die chip.

    What error do you see with the 73-S?

    On the 73-S, obverse side, in the word "LIBERTY". Its slightly noticeable with the naked eye but magnification definitely helps to see it. The "B" & the "E" appear to make sort of an arch? The "B" slightly slanting upwards and the "E" slightly slanting downwards, sorta like a rainbow lol.

    Its possibly nothing, but was curious. :writer:

    Also, just wondering but hypothetically speaking - lets say these coins were MS-67 and/or higher, what could they pull in an auction? I understand it all relies on demand. Most of these coins ill save and stash away until im a little older, but it'd be neat knowing some of them are more than their face value. :D

    Based on coin values in Coin World magazine, modern Lincoln Cents (Memorial reverse) get a little pricey when they hit the MS 67 Red grade. 1982 and later have to be MS68 Red . The prices shown in the magazine are very inaccurate and can be had much lower than their listed prices. Here's a site you can check to get a general idea of current values: https://www.pcgs.com/prices/detail/lincoln-cent-modern/47/most-active
