    If any of you have any error coins you would like to talk about, you can say it here. I like to look for everything, since the thought of unknowingly throwing an expensive or rare coin... makes me shiver I'll start

    1999 Wide AM
    2000 Wide AM

    Theres tons left to name, but I'll leave that to you

    Re: Error coins, please submit

    Just started doing cents in December. At first just for copper but now I check for the Wide AM and Close AM. Have found 3 Wide AM's (98 and 00) and no close ones. Really would like to get that 99 in BU shape.
    There is no silver left around here...

    Just remember, as part of the learning curve, these are varieties, not errors. I myself check for everything possible.

    I've found one 1998 and one 2000 wide AM so far. The 1999 is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Also, I found a 1974 cent struck through a greese-coated die. Kind of cool.

    if you are looking for info regarding error coins, then i would suggest you also post this in "coins", the first one on the list of forums. the people there are more knowledgeable on the errors. that being said how about rotated dies, cuds, and double dies.

    This is my favorite error I found in a bag a couple of months ago. I got a blank planchet this week.

    Just started checking pocket change recently and I might have come up with a 1964 Lincoln cent with an error. Sorry, no pic, but the word LIBERTY has a crooked L. The L is tilted back, not in line with the rest of the word. Coin has average wear for its age. Kinda neat.

    Has to be post mint damage. nothing in the minting process to make that happen.
