    ok, besides packaging most up for younger collector's to fill holes in albums...found some errors (which i did identify) and some that i have a question mark on, though one i think is a pmd, but not quite sure, ok..here they are with the known one's first:

    1946-s small lamination between 9 and 4 in date: 101685161_571723320147520_6061207836963110912_n.jpg 101001980_2639985939606748_2834087470809743360_n.jpg 100901807_303710713966539_5412788914819694592_n.jpg

    It could be a minor Lamination Crack.
    They are common on older Nickels and Cents.

    2-Jefferson's which the alloy does not look mixed properly as there are multi-colored streaks running through the coin, much as on a Lincoln "woody"---this may not show too good on photos,but is def. noticeable in hand 101487574_289490745833640_6233812208833265664_n.jpg 101558701_259584925125249_492583034604748800_n.jpg 101251383_294357451700670_4400713840413638656_n.jpg 100644869_270488130821011_6594799099050983424_n.jpg

    this one i am not so sure of.."improperly annealed planchet" or "black beauty" but with seeing all the md finds, do not know for sure, most likely is not... 100963418_2554930998107327_6917104723526942720_n.jpg 101685731_269342761103858_6100858700161875968_n.jpg

    this next one looks like a "partial clip" or "partial improperly prepared planchet" it does not appear to be pmd to me, i am hoping..so need your opinion on this one...please Paddy! 101573553_247757216457507_2684474436832198656_n.jpg 100921809_3048896631895104_1458492888525570048_n.jpg 100783052_258790165211979_1492134581376122880_n.jpg 100558395_846752449167074_335226002793824256_n.jpg 101202449_547380119550968_3864876916020346880_n.jpg

    ok, last of the 220 coin hoard lot searching...this one looks like mr jefferson been doing some remodelling, last window (or portico) to the right of building, me thinks pmd, but, ya never know, right, this is why i need your valued opinion sir, here goes: 79029953_880677469106544_3021880238607958016_n.jpg 100999167_572045057065758_1296099732682178560_n.jpg 100092937_1487682438070119_4636323544270110720_n.jpg 101805924_288525142325644_7869969129682239488_n.jpg

    ps. also noted the doubled liberty and date has severe ghosting of jefferson's head on reverse..

    The ghosting happens from an overused die and the die clearance is a little too close. The doubling is going to be die deterioration doubling.

    well, done now, did the last 70 or so (i had previously sorted them into decades, then by date, mint mark and put in 2 x 2's and graded, to be priced later..nothing interesting, heck, i even let about 8 go back into the wild due to gouges and scratches and stuff....thanks for reading..and be safe everyone
