Thread: error coins??

  1. #1

    Default error coins??

    Anyone into error coins, I know someone who does quite well buying and selling. He told me you could make a years salary in a few months. Here is a pic of a new GW $1 coin "P" MINT.

    I doubt these are errors

    They look as if they are more of an oddity than an error.

    I have a double strike Delaware quarter and an off center strike of a Texas. Last time I checked a coin dealer offered me $50 for the Delaware one.

    I'm a collector but no expert and I usually don't get into error coins.

    Those marks appear to be bag marks or rough handeling marks. They look indented, die breaks or cracks leave a raised mark.
    Just my thoughts.

    Some are pretty rare. When I was actively collecting coins I needed only two Mercury dimes to complete the set. One was a "overdate" where the mint screwed up the stamping and it was worth big bucks. Never completed that set.
