Morgan dollar reverse lamination issue

logger7logger7 Posts: 8,070 ✭✭✭✭✭

I bought a Morgan dollar where the reverse has a lamination issue, I suppose you would call it. You can literally peel back one of the letters on the reverse as if on a hinge. What would be the right "error" request on an invoice?

    Here is a picture of the coin. The "E" on reverse is hinged. Has anyone seen this before here?

    @logger7 - I imagine that would be called a "Lamination Error" . Any idea why it is so shiny compared to the rest of the coin's surface?

    The angle, the way they set it up in the slab.

    Certainly appears to be delaminating... but I cannot come up with a reason why or how it happened like that... would need close examination... almost seems like it is a retained struck through.... That would make more sense.... Needs in hand analysis by an expert. Cheers, RickO

    Agree that it needs a close up and personal viewing.
    A close up image would be appreciated.

    Is there much of a premium on a coin like this were it to be certified by PCGS or NGC, ie a reverse lamination "error" coin where a letter actually is on a hinge? $50, $100 etc. over normal value?

    The way that it is described in the OP it may not be put in a holder by pcgs. But as others have stated perhaps it is something else.

    It is as it appears, a hinged letter that did not break off. ICG did not see it as a problem coin but failed to designate it as an error coin. It's like a flap, I can't recall seeing a similar issue. I think I paid around $110 for it raw.

    Yes, it’s definitely a lamination error, and no it’s not worth regrading with pcgs or ngc. Skip over at ICG should be able to get this label fixed for you (no charge), especially if you noted it somewhere on the submission form.

    He’ll be at FUN and it would be very easy to hand it back to them to get labeled correctly.

    Nice error btw
