    Can someone tell me what to do here? I have a 1962 d penny that has an error on the back side. I’ve had two coin experts look at it under microscope and tell me you’ve got smt here. Well what do I have?

    Welcome to the neighborhood, Billy!

    When a "so-called" expert tells you that you have something there, it usually means that they don't know anything about errors. Most dealers don't bother to learn about errors because it is too time-consuming and takes away from their main business which is selling coins.

    You need to post photos so someone can help you. Please be specific about what you see. ~ Chris

    Welcome to CT @Billynlynn5624 As stated, without photos, we can't be much help to you.
    And, here is the spiel on posting photos.
    You should always post FULL IMAGE photos (after you upload your photo, two buttons appear: Thumbnail and Full Image, click Full Image and your photo appears full size on your post and is easily enlarged by clicking on it. Always show both the obverse and reverse, even if your question is just about one side. Members can often give more valuable information having both sides to evaluate. Crop out superfluous background so just the coin shows, and post photos with correct orientation so members don't have to turn their computer in some awkward fashion to view it properly. Add close ups of areas you have questions about and make your questions as definitive as possible so we know what you are asking for. And try to have the best lighting possible to show the most favorable photo of the coin. Hope this helps in the future. Good luck.

    Not everthing that looks different or strange is automatically a mint error. Not all coin dealers know what true errors are. Post pictures please.

    Nope. Not allowed. You need to post pictures here on this thread.

    If the "Coin experts" claimed you have something.. Why didn't you have them explain it to you? o_O

    If you can email a photo you can post it here. Just go to upload a file and there should be a link to your photos there.

    this forum it's as simple as dragging and dropping the picture from your desktop. Not complicated at all.

    The reverse error doesn't show through on the obverse...

    I think the OP is asking for a translation of the acronym "smt" rather than an opinion on the coin. Perhaps that is all his two "experts" would tell him. Personally, I can't remember ever seeing the term or figure out what it means, either. And yes, he clearly should go back and ask those experts what they meant by that.

    I think "smt" is the OP's abbreviation for "something". ~ Chris
