    To me, these look like damage from a coin roll machine or possibly a coin counter machine. Although the photos are clear and I try to make them larger on the screen, I cannot discern whether the...

    James hit it on the head, as usual. This is one heck of an acid coin.

    It was done after it left the mint, meaning it is post mint damage. Look at the reverse of the coin. See that uneven area at...

    As an added bonus, I decided for the heck of it to magnify this RPM as best I could so you could see some finer details.

  11. 1955-S Lincoln Cent - Should this be a CONECA RPM?

    I bought a handful of BU rolls from an ex-dealer at the Virginia Beach Coin show last weekend.
    Sunday was extremely slow, so I decided to go through the 1954-D and the 1955-S rolls.

    What do you...

  17. 1936 Lincoln Cent thin planchet - Possible Acid treated?

    I had another dealer bring a coin to me. He's a retired Senior Chief from the US Navy.

    Even as defined as this one is, I am almost sure it doesn't have a lot of value. I keep it as a educational piece and its a topic starter at the CONECA tables at shows.
