    One of my favorite pickups was an 1806/5 Draped Bust Quarter. Just love the look of it and all. The history of the mint back in the day having to reuse old dies and just stamping a new number in over the old. I like this particular overrate because it’s so easily seen with the naked eye. Anyone have an overrate or other error coin they’d like to share. IMG_5015.jpeg IMG_5014.jpeg IMG_5016.jpeg

    I have way to many over dates to post but the best ones are on Bust Half Dollars. However the 1943/2 War Nickel is worth mentioning.

    I am currently processing probably the finest collection of world coin overdates I've ever seen, with dates ranging from the 1500's to early 1900's. Some of the most valuable are two 1600's British Crowns and a handful of British Trade Dollars. Some of the most attractive and clearest overdates are mid-1840's British Half Pennies.

    Going to take me about a week or two just to 2x2 all of them (hundreds of coins).

    The original owner put together a fine, fine collection. I consider it an honor just to get to handle them.

    Will do my best to get photos of some of my favorites.

    This 1858 H10C is over an "inverted" date and a scarce variety in the series:

    Here is a 1796 over 5 half dime. This was the very first overdate coin that the U.S. mint issued.

    This is the worst one that is in a slab, the last I knew. I wish I could upgrade it, but I have not been able to do that. NGC graded it VG-8.

    Overall there are about 50 known. At one time it was thought that there were only 7 or 8, and all of them were high grade. The reason was that only advanced, wealthy collectors had checked their coins. Once others looked at their pieces, more were found. It's still a tough coin.

    The overdate is not that sharp.

    The way to spot it is on the reverse. If the berry is under the "E" in "UNITED," it's the over date.

    If it is under the "D" in "UNITED," it's the normal date.
