    Well I gave a coin dealer a pile of cash. You’ll have to ask someone who was at the Mint in 1968 how they screwed this one up.

    Let's see the entire slab.

    Here's my weird odd piece. I think It's some kind of double or triple die test token??

    It's a Twin Cities amusement token made by Northwester Stamp Works of St. Paul during the pinball craze that enveloped the metro area during the 1930's. Tokens for individual bars were in such demand that the manufacturer overstruck returned tokens rather than waiting for new planchets. Some were also used as set up pieces to adjust the press strength and to judge if they could get away with the overstrikes. You will find some with four, five and even six distinct different strikes. There are thousands of different size, metal and die varieties of the pinball tokens which changed every time the legislature tried to restrict their use.

    Really?? That is so cool!! Thank you very much for that @tokenpro!! I did some research on it several years ago. I don't remember much about it. I took some screen shot of a token website and saved it, SOMEWHERE. If I find it, I'll show you what it was. Thanks again!! 👍🏻

    @tokenpro-

    I Found them. I think I see evidence of all 4 of these on the one coin.

    Nothing rare or valuable about these two super beat up coins/tokens (1515-47 billon french coin, 1580-86 dodge lion nuremburg jeton) EXCEPT that they were dug up next to the Potomac just above Quantico, VA
    . Not by me though. Anyway, I can't help but wonder if they are connected to Captain John Smith's boast expedition of the northern Virginia waterway inlets in 1608!

    Interesting thread... I have nothing to contribute as weird coin/tokens... Just never found or purchased any. Some neat items though.... @Fraz - That VP token would look good in my Challenge Coin collection though.... Cheers, RickO

    The label shows more than just "PCGS". It should also show a grade, any problems, and a description of what's inside the slab.

    Not that I'm skeptical but...... The label should also read: Not a mint error. The coin was Intentionally and maliciously made by a mint employee on a midnight shift. There's just not enough room to put that on the label. 🤣

    I'm just jealous I don't have one!! 🥲 😉

    This one is pretty easy to explain: dime got struck and then stuck in hopper. Hopper got reused for cent blanks and the coin got loose and went through.

    All that said, the coin is definitively a 1968… I just don’t want to spend $50 on shipping and wait 6 months to have it reholdered.

    Stunning @airplanenut! That's outstanding! Thanks for that!! 👍🏻

    The whole design is so different the feathers, the neck, Liberty, the buffalo itself. Must have been a prototype.

    Identical!

    Only, two different grades.

    I think they are British silver ingots used by jewelers.

    I believe that is a galvano, the design is created in relief in plaster and reduced by a Janvier lathe to the proper size as a master hub. Very cool piece, with subtle differences from the adapted design.

    Incomplete planchets wanted, especially Lincoln Cents & type coins.

    I have a few. B)

    This is unusual because it is NOT clashed dies, type 2 dollars are almost always clashed:

    And for a silverware pattern, this is about as unusual and cool as it gets!
