    Greetings my fellow coin collectors. I have a 1866 2 cent coin that i found digging through some boxes of my father's belongings. I took a close look at them with my microscope and found a possible double or triple die error and a strike through grease and was wondering how i would go about getting them authenticated? I have some good photos as well and would really appreciate all input and help in pointing me in the right direction.

    The way to get input and help here is to post photos.

    Both PCGS and NGC certify varieties but attribution is limited to documented varieties by recognized authorities. If you actually have discovered a new variety, you would first need to have it recognized by the associated authority. That's where pictures would help us point you in the right direction.

    The correct numismatic terminology would be Doubled Die and Tripled Die.. Not double or triple.
    Know what you are looking for before you try to figure it out. That's a big newbie mistake.

    And you need to post pictures

    Welcome to the forum,
    Says has pictures, doesn't show pictures.
    My input is, I'm skeptical and not going further without pictures.

    they say a picture is worth a thousand words.....

    There a number of known repunched dates in the 2 Cent series. Post a clear, cropped pic of the date as well as the front and back of the coin. I don't have access to my reference books, but I'm sure other members have copies and can help attribute it

    There's a very nice doubled die already known for the date, most visible on "OF AMERICA." See the Cherrypicker's Guide for an image. It is not overly rare in the circulated grades.

    Not trying to be snide or negative, but you having been a member here for almost a year, has me wondering if you are just curious, or an actual collector. If you followed CT regularly, you could have answered your own question.
    Without photos, not much most of us can suggest. Probably a waste of your money to have a TPG tell you what you have.

    Also, you should look up Longacre's doubling as it is often confused with true doubling on a few of the coins of that era. Jim
