      You have been seriously misled by Alan Hagar or you’ve grossly misunderstood him Edwin. Your coin deserves to be put in a PCGS holder and given authenticity and a numeric grade. Once that is done, the “TRUE VALUE” of your coin will be realized. Until then, you can continue to say that you’ve received a $7 million offer, but that means…[Read more]

    In keeping with the recent theme, here’s a few errors from my collection.

      Very nice Todd. These look like MUCH the BEST in ANY DENOMINATION.

      Thanks John! I’m sorry they’re not all PCGS, but I did the best I could. ;-)

    • Todd Abshire 11 hours ago

      I see feathers on the eagle! HOLY COW! That’s nice to see on a New Orleans coin. Too many times I’ve seen an “O” minted coin with no feathers visible on the breast and the coin resides in a MS64 holder. It is my understanding that PCGS and NGC grade New Orleans coins on a different scale from the other mints due to softer strikes from the New…[Read more]

    • John Smith 9 hours, 27 minutes ago

      Yep NO mints can really look bad. Ive seen people grade BU coins XF due to what they think is wear. Enlighten me on this grading scale you speak of

    • Todd Abshire 1 hour, 46 minutes ago

      My point is that PCGS and NGC both take into consideration where a coin was minted in order to grade it. That shouldn’t be the case. A Morgan Dollar is a Morgan Dollar and all should be graded equally. I’ve seen New Orleans minted Morgans with no breast feathers visible being graded MS64. That’s just ridiculous. How can that be when there are…[Read more]

    • John Smith 27 minutes ago

      Well I see your point Todd, but I’ve never graded upon strike myself. For instance, if it had a very weak strike with hardly any breast feathers showing but excellent mint luster and very few marks, I would still grade it an MS64. I was under the assumption that strike does not count in near as much as bag marks when it comes to mint state…[Read more]

    • Todd Abshire 22 minutes ago

      Depth of strike, luster, contact marks, rim dings and color should be the grading criteria for all coins. If a coin has weak breast feathers, say MS61 or MS62ish, but that same coin has a MS64 or MS65 obverse, then I was under the assumption that both PCGS and NGC would give an average grade for both the obverse and reverse combined. After all,…[Read more]

    Todd here is a somewhat softly struck MS66 Morgan Dollar. Not New Orleans and not my coin. Curious if you would you agree with the grade due to the strike?

    I just bought this one a couple of months ago. I’m not a huge fan of the Statehood Quarters, but this one was given the “proof-like” designation so I had to have it for an educational piece.

    • John Smith 9 hours, 28 minutes ago

      Dont believe ive seen a PL State Quarter before.

    • Todd Abshire 1 hour, 44 minutes ago

      That’s why I bought it. It was something I’ve never seen before. I also bought a 2004-D Iowa Statehood Quarter graded MS68 by PCGS for dirt cheap. That’s another high grade not seen very often in the Statehood series.

      So somebody contacted you and privately offered you 7,000,000? I don’t blame you for not taking that. I wouldn’t take less than $100,000,000 for the coin. What price would you personally take?

    • David B 6 days, 13 hours ago

      i could never turn down $7 million and sleep at night.

    • Cecil S 6 days, 12 hours ago

      Well eBay in the past has had numerous people make offers or bid items up while never having any intention to pay. I think this email is exactly that and unfortunately being naively believed.

    • John Smith 5 days, 11 hours ago

      Put it back on ebay and I will send you a message with a 70,000,000 offer and you can shatter that record

    • Garry Naples 1 day, 12 hours ago

      It’s even described wrong. It’s a dime imprint on a cent. Not the other way around. And that means it’s impossible to be a Mint product. The cent planchet would have to be in a dime collar. It can’t happen. It was probably done with a vise.

    • Todd Abshire 1 day, 10 hours ago

      This coin cannot be a dime on a cent planchet. There is no way. Unite States Cent planchets are copper plated zinc and United States Dime planchets are copper-nickel clad. This coin was struck on a dime planchet. A blank dime planchet would have been placed inside of a cent striking collar and been struck with a Lincoln Cent die in 1995, thus…[Read more]

    • Garry Naples 23 hours, 46 minutes ago

      It’s not a dime planchet. If it were a dime planchet the motto at the top would be hardly visible and the portrait at the bottom would be cut off. Its a standard cent sized planchet. Maybe it is zinc if the color is not correct. As such it is an impossible strike as a cent planchet would not fit into a dime collar.

    • Garry Naples 23 hours, 31 minutes ago

      So, if it was not done in a vise then someone took a obv and rev dime die and struck the die on the cent with a sledgehammer. Looking at it, I cannot be 100% sure if the impression is incuse or not. This is fun. :)

    • John Smith 21 hours, 44 minutes ago

      Gary I am by no means an error expert whatsoever, but you raised a vey good point. How could the full penny impression appear on a smaller dime? Can anyone explain this?

    • Garry Naples 21 hours, 24 minutes ago

      Thank you John for your comment.

    • Todd Abshire 15 hours, 59 minutes ago

      I’ll say it once more, if this coin is a legitimate U. S. Mint error, it cannot be struck on a cent planchet. The holder, although put out by ACG, states it as such and I do not know of any other way it would be possible, other than being struck on a foreign planchet. Most likely scenario: a dime planchet was washed and annealed in a tumbler at…[Read more]

    • John Smith 15 hours, 59 minutes ago

      Could the cent be plated to look like a dime? I saw a replica coin where they scratched out the word copy and toned it. PCI deemed it authentic. I wouldnt put it past ACG to certify a fake.

    • Todd Abshire 15 hours, 18 minutes ago

      Hey John, the cent could have been plated, but it is impossible for a cent planchet to rest inside of a dime striking collar. In order for this coin to have been struck on a cent planchet, a blank cent planchet would have had to been struck inside of a cent collar using a dime hammer die and anvil die. Then, the dime on cent planchet would have…[Read more]

    • Garry Naples 13 hours, 5 minutes ago

      The OP has posted a cent struck on a dime planchet and it looks nothing like this one.

    • Todd Abshire 12 hours, 26 minutes ago

      Hey there Gary, all errors are different. The look of similar errors can have differing looks depending on die pressure, die state or preservation, type of planchet being struck, etc. For example, capped die strikes are sometimes only 1/8″ think and in other instances, I’ve seen capped die strikes up to 2″ deep. One can’t assume that just…[Read more]

      True to each his own. :). I would love to hear Fred’s take on it.

    • Todd Abshire 11 hours, 3 minutes ago

      I agree! Fred has been into coins since the ripe old age of 9. He’s the man when it comes to errors.

    • John Smith 9 hours, 25 minutes ago

      How much cash did he offer you? It was some mystery man seven years later with a box of cash and the dime? Lucky you still lived at the same address!

    To GARY NIPLES > When I put these coin in eBay certified by Accugrade this coin got a lot of RESPECT because the coin is certified personally by Mr. ALAN HAGER in Baltimore Coin Show in Maryland,2000. Large Crowd as always. In early years of 1996 and before the arrival of Mr. ALAN Hager in Baltimore Coin Show, Maryland. NGC,PCGS,ANACS has seen…[Read more]

    • Garry Naples 18 hours, 25 minutes ago

      Ok guys. This is an example of a dime planchet placed in a cent collar. You can see that much of the motto is missing at obverse top. The rim also cuts into all the letters on the reverse. The cent strike is the last strike and is most prominent. That is not the case in the previous example.

    • Garry Naples 16 hours, 36 minutes ago

      A second point about this example is that being struck by a die at extreme pressure, the dime detail was virtually obliterated by the cent strike. in the previously touted example, that is not the case. The dime strike hardly affected the cent devices at all. This leads me to believe the cent took a light strike by a die hit by a hammer. Just my…[Read more]

    • John Smith 16 hours, 28 minutes ago

      Edwin can you place a Lincoln Cent right beside your dime and snap photo so we can indeed see it is smaller?

    • John Smith 16 hours, 2 minutes ago

      Garry I think you are on to something here. Maybe thats why he wants to keep it in the ACG slab, which is the originator of the overgrading coin services.

    • Garry Naples 13 hours, 3 minutes ago

      Very true. He has admitted the TPGs won’t touch it.
