    Just came across this and not sure what this would be considered.

    Before everyone says, “oh, Thats garbage, gunk, trash etc.,” know for a fact that’s it’s not. I took my fingernail and try to move it, and as you see, it scratched it.

    This was certainly stamped into the 9 and the “R”. The “R” looks doubled, with a bulge/bump in the center. what causes it? Die Deterioration, foreign object, etc?

    Your coin is the large date variety. I'm thinking die chips, but the small date variety was the one known for die chips on the date. That's why they modified the date. So IDK, maybe somebody with more expertise can chime in.

    That is certainly interesting. I set it off to the side to see where this leads. Thanks for the insight.

    I’m aware no fingernails, but at first glance, I thought it was gunk. Should’ve used a q-tip, I know.

    are die chips worth holding onto, or just another issue/damage variety such as die deterioration doubling?

    Also I assume this is die deterioration? Looks like he was hit 3 times. (Different coin) image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

    Looks like a bunch of grime between the letters. You'll note that the L and B for this ODV appear larger than the rest of the letters in LIBERTY. A 60s cent.

    I was referring to the lack of an “L” lol.

    Why do you think members would call your coin garbage? Haven't you been given correct answers to your previous questions? There are many knowledgeable members here that try to help new collectors. If you found an error or variety, like the die chips in the 60D, they'll tell you. If you post a damage coin they'll tell you.

    Just because a coin looks unusual, doesn't mean its an error. In fact, there are many, many, many more damaged coins than errors out in circulation. Take time from your searching to learn the minting and die making process. It takes time, but will help keep you from getting frustrated when you're told your unusual find us PMD.

    Here are some links

    My reference to “garbage” was not of the coin, but the build-up of debris's. Lol. Not getting frustrated at all. I laugh.
    I’m am curious to know if this would be a mint error though.

    You'll see this often enough when you CRH. Probably a pair of diagonal cutter marks. Add in a few well placed strikes on the rim, you have a Canadian cent of sorts.

    Don't think that was done in the mint. PMD in my eyes!

    This one looks a bit corroded (signs of damage to the copper). It may have spent some time in a cup holder in a car.
