    Rose, I'll tell you honestly, that I am not qualified to give you a value on anything except the dryer coin, and that is 1 cent. lol
    Now there are other members who can give you an estimate of value on those, but you can also go to eBay and research the "completed listings" for those particular errors. That will give you some numbers to look at that actually represent what similar coins sold for in the recent past.
    My personal opinion is that the capped die coin will have the largest premium, followed by the lam error. Since the lam errors are not extremely strong on the coin, the value will probably not be that much.
    Good Luck Rose, and please let us know how things turn out.

    Probably not the best place but it is coin related. Amidst a swap on Numista, I failed to send my Numista colleague one of the coins he was likely most interested in - a 1930 Canadian one-cent. While searching for it (yes, I found it and put it in the mail), I noticed that one of my spare 1929 one-cents had a smaller diameter than the other cents of the same type (KM 28) - even other 1929s. If one looks closely, one can see that the text is much closer to the edge than the other 1929s. For example, on the reverse, the As in Canada on the coins to the left and right don't touch the edge; but on the one in the middle the As do touch the edge. All that said, what's your opinion? No error? Wrong planchet? Correct planchet (or blank) but too forcefully edged? Post-mint damage (PMD)? Just a normal occurrence? I'm seeing things?

    That is odd.

    I also add my thanks to LordM and friends for this.

    After several decades away, I’m finally getting back into coin collecting. I now go through rolls from my bank on a regular basis. I am primarily trying to bring my collection (business strikes) up to date. I don’t purchase (or haven’t yet) proof sets, so my collection doesn’t have the modern “S” mint coins. However, over the last few months I have found two proofs in the rolls of quarters I got from the bank. I was greatly surprised, more than a little excited, but also dismayed to find any circulating proofs. Most of the reasons I could think of for my finds did not involve a happy story.

    @paddyman98, I thought lamination issues were considered a mint error. Did I read the information about that incorrectly? Or are there specific types of lamination issues that are considered errors while others are considered PMD? I appreciate the help and the info both. Thank you.

    I’m not sure what the intended use for the 2 pieces are, were. An eBay seller of their piece claimed it a decorative hanging plate. I ain’t gonna use it as an ashtray.

    Teasing? Uhm, maybe. For the $15 cad no tax purchase price, I probably got a deal as opposed to buying an UNC set. Yeah I want just the coins in hand but I won’t destroy the art that the piece is just to have them.

    Wanted every one to know about the kindness of the members on this site!
    A very kind senior member had a new looking book he was offering to members,. It was a book about Repunched mintmarks on Lincoln cents, the book looks like it just came from the book store! See Photo attached!
    I replied that I might want the book, and entered my info. Thinking I did not have a chance.
    Low and behold the booked arrived in the mail!
    Such a example of Pure Kindness!

    I love to collect rolls of Bank of America (and any other bank for that matter) wrapped coins. Here is my most recent acquisition of a $25 bank wrapped roll of Susan B Anthony Dollars. I love it!


    Thanks Lord M and glad to see you back!

    Just got back from Cyprus. The coin & stamp shop in Limassol was a bust, as everything was either 1. Polished, 2. Modern, 3. Hopelessly overpriced or 4. A combination of any or all of 1-3.

    I did find a Turkish 10 kurus in the airport car park, and a Ukranian 10 kopiyok in the hire car. :)

    Oh, and a semi-threatened Cyprus bee orchid, Ophrys kotschyi.

    A little piece my father picked up on a stroll through Europe.
    Carried a machine gun across the Remagen bridge and ran it 2 hours. Lost 2 ammo carriers shot next to him
