    I have a tough time believing how you could get an offstruck nickel to then be over-struck by a Kennedy?
    Feel like there's some mint employee shenanigans going on here

    First time 1964 major errors appear. Makes you say hmmmmmm!

    Wonder if a former mint worker (circa 1964) passed away recently and left that little cache of Kennedy errors to a friend or family member? I'm no error collector and certainly not an expert but that small collection of seemingly newly recognized errors begs for some serious provenance.

    Those errors are outstanding in my book.

    The second image is of a brockage struck Kennedy half that probably got
    stuck in the bin, loosened free, then struck by a nickel die. I'm sure
    @paddyman98 can explain it better and correct what needs to be corrected. Maybe @Fred Weinberg could offer some
    guidance as well.

    @tibor Well actually. I have the inside scoop on all the pics shown. All I can say is that Fred is aware of all of them. But I'm not going to comment any more at this moment :muted:

    Faked or somehow made on purpose? As a novice...the nickel over Kennedy just doesnt look right. Something is off on these. But, I dont know squat.

    I have a feeling at least a couple of these were made on purpose.

    Which begs the question - are they even "errors" at this point? By definition, a mint error is when the mint made a mistake in the course of regular production.

    If some employee fed a nickel blank into a half dollar die, then that's not an error at all - that's fabrication. These should have no more value than a vise-job that was made by a specific person for a specific purpose.

    Yea
    thats honestly one of the dumbest “errors” I’ve ever seen. It’s lkrerally impossible for this to actually happen without intervention.

    I would think that any serious error collector would require some kind of provenance with coins like these. A COA would dictate the premium that could be placed on them.
