    Thank You :)

    I am constantly searching 24/7 and have very strict guidelines on what I buy. Focus and specialization.

    Here is a new Jeff I just got in with 9 Zeros ...

    Very interesting.... I have never found error coins, well, except for a blank cent planchet. While I do not collect error coins, I am amazed at what occurs and is found post mint. Cheers, RickO

    You guys are killin' me with these errors! I'm always amazed at them as well. The day these coins had a bad day, is the day you guys had a GREAT day!

    Are they actually found or are most bought? I guess someone, somewhere initially found them. In a mint bag? On the mints production floor?

    Whatever the case, they are stunning! Congrats! 👍🏻 👍🏻

    My double-struck-in-the-collar 2016 over 2015 nickel was found in a roll of new nickels that was in a box of new rolls from the bank.

    Best 5 cents I ever spent. :)

    OAKSTAR, almost all error collectors and dealers buy the error coins already found. These found coins mostly come from rolling companies like Brinks, I also buy mint errors from the people that search rolls for fun.

    And now for something completely different. A Jeff struck on clad scrap ....

    Thanks Errors! Man, that Jefferson is just plane over the top NUTS!!! We need to get a job at Brinks!?!? 😀

    So the errors shown here are modern errors. Just to add additional mystery to the subject... They could also be walking out in the bottom of mint production floor employees shoes? I always wondered what the exact level of security is and the penalty for stealing at the mint. I would imagine instant separation from service. I can't see jeopardizing your job for that but I guess it's happened over the years.

    Nowadays, they check the employees metal content. It would be hard for a person to smuggle out on their body today.

    My guess is the modern errors mostly come from the rolling companies (employees) like Brinks even tho since 2002 the companies are suppose to give the error coins back to the mint per their contract.

    @ErrorsOnCoins-

    I'm really just an outside looking into your mint errors world. It seems to me the United States Mint would/could make a fortune by intentionally manufacturing these errors and selling them! 😉

    I know what you and the other major error collectors are thinking..................DON'T GIVE MISS GIBSON ANY IDEAS! 😁 😉

    And you have the errors to prove it! 😉

    P.S. I should actually say: Your Mint Error coins disprove that. 👍🏻 👍🏻
