Happy with the results with these extremely rare coins.

I believe the Weir Farm error is the biggest /best ultra modern quarter error as I know of no other. What else is out there in quarter errors dated 2020 and beyond. The Mankiller die break error is awesome but not as unique or cool as the one below.

    The Weir Park is quite eye appealing. Thanks for sharing.

    LindyS, while that is a very cool coin and years ago before D Carr started "making" errors, I asked him if he could make some and at the time he said no. Money changes things I guess.

    D Carr manufactured errors and US Mint Errors are not even comparable.

    Cool coin. nonetheless :)

    Very nice coins, photos, slabs and inserts Chris!

    Love the clips! You have the makings of a clip article here!

    It’s worth noting the Mankiller die break isn’t unique due to being a variety which is neat in its own way. They are all cool!

    It may come down to whether one likes Dan’s work or not. If one does, I personally think they are comparable to an extent. They are not made to order like you seem to have asked. The thing about the errors Dan makes is that they are so rare and in such strong hands that they are almost never available!

    I bought it off fleabay. Was not sourced direct from the House of Carr.
    It sat 2 or 3 days taunting me...
    Then I gave in to my primal collector urges & closed the offer.

    Zero regrets, except had I passed I am quite certain now I would have been very sad in hindsight had some other lucky buyer made it theirs.

    Another stellar goodie for my error coinage archive obtained from here, there & everywhere.

    You gotta admit, it's a little embarrassing posting this kinda stuff after seeing EOC's inventory! But he asked for it. Here's a Weir Farm.

    Here's another 2020 quarter error. Come on @ErrorsOnCoins, be honest. This is the kind of stuff you throw back, right? 🤣 😂

    Had the West Point MM been total obscured on this Special obverse die , would it have been unique ? If so then that piece could be an awesome high dollar sign cherry pick. Hunt them down, that goo strike thru may exist.

    If the W MM had been totally obscured, how would you know it was a W MM?

    OAKSTASR ... thank you. I actually started my business by finding and selling minor mint error coins like the one you posted.

    Excellent photography is the key. I would sell quite a few minor errors and then put those profits in buying a major eye appealing error coin. Rinse and repeat. I did this over and over again thousands of times until I am where I am now. I have left that part of the market and it is wide open for someone to follow suit.

    LOL at your comment as it did crack me up.

    Here's the thing. This is an extremely rare error with a fricken Bat on it with a pandemic date. Very ironic and iconic.

    I have not seen any other major bat error coins except the awesome blind bat error.

    The reverse with the bat on it probably grades MS64 or MS65

    You are almost right about the obverse. I would not say there is a scratch on it but perhaps friction. When I sent it in I wondered if it would come back AU58.. MS61 is a very odd grade.

    Note: Check out the Blakesley Effect on the obverse.

    Here is the obverse of the Bat clip for education ...

    That's a great question for you. Most of us know a minor mint error and most of us know a major mint error when we see it... Is there an official definition or explanation for major mint errors?.. Or is it subjective?

    I wasn’t expecting to see that much weakness in the strike on the obverse of the bat quarter. I agree that the reverse is a ms64-65, and I’d grade the obverse au55. Guess they averaged the 2 and concluded on ms61. Can’t say I’ve ever seen this exact use of a ms61 grade before by them.

    Right. Very weak obverse and strong reverse. You would think that both side got the same striking pressure.

    Some weakness for sure came from metal wanting to flow into the clip area.

    It would be great for someone to take that part of the market, and possibly get mentorship from EOC!

    I got nothing error wise US Mint made in 21 or 22. I own a few errors made in 21 and 22 sourced from the planet Earth, but not from US Mint.
    That said, I'd added some great items this year to the error archive from decades past. There is always so much to choose from if one does a few searches and knows where to shop.
    I did pick up a problem free BU 10% off center 2020 1c for $29 cash delivered. Don't usually care about 10% OC but the Mints have plugged the leaks recently beforehand and now afterwards.

    LindyS, I have been watching these since they first came out.

    I had this one certified with the above batch. I believe it is the most off center 2020 and nicest undamaged example.

    What do you consider 2006 if not ultra modern?

    This coin of yours is one of my favorites! I love the composition and color!

    Yes.

    My cut off date is 2001. The mint did drastic changes to prevent major mint error from getting out in 2001.

    I consider anything 2002 and beyond Ultra Modern but I guess the errors from 2002 are now 2O years old.

    I am curious as to where dramatic clip errors like these show up. I can't imagine they make it through any type of sorting machine. Are they most often found in mint sealed bags?

  • ByersByers Posts: 1,457 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I agree with Chris. Very few MAJOR mint errors have been discovered recently, especially in the last ten years.

    Here is an extremely rare U.S. off- metal for several reasons:

    •It’s a dime off metal which is rare.
    •It’s dated 2018!!!
    •It’s struck on an iron/steel planchet!!
