    This is a coin on eBay which has little detail. But the one thing that is obvious is that it is a Draped Bust rather than a Liberty Cap.

    1935 D Arkansas Obv.jpg 1935 d Arkansas Rev.jpg I just purchased a 1935-S Arkansas commem that is slabbed as a 1935-D.
    It's a coin I plan to hang onto, because I like having this PCGS error. Does anyone have an opinion as to whether PCGS's mistake adds much value?

    There are some people who pay more for slab errors, but in my experience, not much if any.

    Sorry for the poor photos; it's tucked away and this was just so I had the serial number for insurance type purposes. This is actually a 1913 from Philadelphia. The dealer had a post-it on the -D part and I couldn't help myself but purchase it.

    L&Cbuffalo 2.jpeg It's from the Lewis and Clark set, not the Buffalo set. I bough this several years ago for under $20, just to get the error slab. Recently slabbed ones have been going for around $100! You can still get it unslabbed for $10 - $15.

    The other question these errors raise: If they got the identification of the coin wrong on these slabs, how much validity does anyone put on the grade assigned or the authenticity of the coin inside? Maybe the grade they assigned was meant for another coin that ended up in a wrong holder... for example; two coins were graded, labels were printed accurately for each, but the coins ended up in the wrong slab. So perhaps the slab that states the wrong mintmark was meant for a MS66 coin, and what's in my slab is really a MS64 or was a "details" coin?

    This is probably my favorite and most alarming error so far. It points out that there are more than just typing errors, but placing the wrong label into the wrong case. It makes me wonder how many Morgans that shipped together got mixed up like this. @Two Dogs has a good point.

    Not really an error, but I find it ironic that it's crooked (or slanted) in the slab. It's since been freed.
