My newest gold error coin purchase

jwittenjwitten Posts: 3,444 ✭✭✭✭✭

Seller pics... I will try to take some later today. Is this considered a cud? It appears to go to the rim on both sides. I've never seen this one before.. I like it!

    Interesting. My first thought is ex-jewelry or mount removed.

    not my expertise by any means however.

    looks like a planchet flaw to my eyes. but, i defer to the error experts.

    i don't believe it's jewelry because the surfaces on the coin don't look like a jewelry piece to me.

    Looks like a die crack or retained cud.

    What do you think @FredWeinberg ?

    Doesn't look like a crack or retained cud to me.

    What do you think it is? You can tell at the top of the line the crack widens or flakes away a bit.

    Looks like it might be a planchet flaw to me. Nice looking coin no matter what. I like it a lot.

    I think I'm leaning planchet flaw too now. I forgot cuds/diecracks are raised, and this appears to be sunken into the coin.

    Planchet flaw.

    Looks like a planchet flaw. Nice pick up!

    Cracked planchet to be a little more precise imho.

    OK with one exception!

    Could be a planchet flaw or crack,
    but I can't tell what, for certain,
    from the photos posted only.

    Looks like a cracked planchet to me. Pretty cool piece!

    It’s looks as minted to me what ever it turns out to be. I can tell I like it a lot👍🏻

    Looking at the magnified picture, it appears to be a planchet flaw. That being said, I would have thought that the striking process would have filled in the crack...unless some post strike force caused it to open.... Interesting anomaly...Cheers, RickO

    I'm over-reacting and calling it a retained lamination.

    Any idea of if was cracked before or after it was coined?

    Nice piece BTW
