    is this 1923s US silver dollar with a spike going out the eagle's right shoulder the error was found by me long after I had bought the coin slabbed by PCGS MS63, which surprised me as I had never seen the error till the right angle of light hit it

    a variation of VAM1-K so I'm told, errors are not my cup of tea so to say

    photos taken with an old webcam so they aren't the best

    nice find when I was going through rolls of pennys I threw one in but then a little latter I took a second look and it was a little off center by like 3% still a keeper.

    yeah sometimes you just aren't expecting some errors to be there and yet they will sneak by you if you aren't looking carefully

    I have a 1930 SLQ with a die clash. Last year, I posted it here asking for help, cause I didn't know what that "tiny rectangle with a dot in it" was (to the left of her right knee). Several members replied that it was a die clash. It was the first time I heard of and learned about them.

    They then explained to me what a die clash was, and I said. "But there's nothing on the reverse design that has a 'tiny rectangle with a dot in it.' "

    Then another member was nice enough to show me a superimposed image.

    And sure enough, there it was... the "E" in E PLURIBUS UNUM! I never would have guessed. And so it was a very memorable die clash lesson. :)
