They are all Denver Mint, some look a little mis shaped, some have weird cloudy marks, 1 even looks like the head is larger...can anyone tell me if I have error coins? None of them have a complete rim

No, just normal poor quality Ikes. Not worth more than face, sorry to say.

Welcome to the forum, however!

Thank You! I think it's pretty interesting...can you tell me if these are Type 1 or 2? I have Five of them, and I thought they may have a partial collar error, but I guess just poor quality. I appreciate any information you have..

All type 2, as denoted first and foremost by the thinner letters - type 1 letters are blatantly fatter (and much uglier in my opinion), and also by the position of PLURIBUS between E and UNUM - here again type 1 coins have PLURIBUS out of alignment bing shifted to the left.

Type one coins have a noticeably higher relief on the obverse and lower relief on the reverse. Type two coins are just the opposite.
