  • 1983 D error in UNITED

    I found this 1983 coin with an obvious mark in the D in the word UNITED. It can be seen the naked eye. I'm very new .. don't have a trained eye yet ..and I was curious as to what this is called. I appreciate any assistance. Thanks!

        The mark you mentioned above/behind/below the "D" as well as another, smaller mark to the right - can't quite tell from the photos if they are raised or incuse. Can you tell? If they are raised this appears to be a scratch/scrape on the surface of the die, resulting in a raised feature on the coin (but not cutting deeply into the device as to be seen in the D itself).

          Might be a planchet error? It looks like its under the D but it is raised. It appears like the D was placed on top the marking.

            That looks like a gouge on the field of the die. All of the devices including the letter D would have been sunk into the die and the gouge would not affect it at all.

                I agree, either a die gouge, scrape or die dent.
