1972 Ike

Post by Jan » Sat Dec 12, 2015 1:45 pm

Hi all. Total newbie here and pretty clueless so I apologize in advance. I have been reading up and trying to compare my coins with photos I found online. Even trying to compare side by side I'm not sure what I have.

Also...curious about the mark over 1970 and on the right side. Are those some type of error or was the coin damaged during circulation? Any opinions appreciated?

As usual, hard to say without the coin in hand. Looks like some kind of defect originally on the planchet stock.

It's open to whatever you want to do. Most humans learn much better visually, so feel free to post as much as you want.

Bring the photos! Good photos stimulate better replies on questions.

Haha...ok, thanks. I didn't want to be the annoying newbie.

Can you tell what type this one is by the photos? I'm thinking one....but I don't have a good magnifier yet and it's very hard to tell.

Really hard to see, but I believe it's a type 3.

I think it is a type 3, but I can't be sure from the picture.
