Error 1838, 1846 Large Cents??
Hello from cold, snowy New England!
I have had this 1838 cent kicking around for quite some time and I'm wondering what ever happened to Miss Liberty's nose? I couldn't find a variety for 1838 with this feature and I have examined the coin with good light and magnification.
The 1846 cent has just the faintest hint of the 1 in the date visible. Could this be something in the die obscuring the 1, or perhaps a bit of cloth got into the press?
May I ask for the thoughts of you experts out there? Are these true mint errors? My apologies for the less-than-stellar photos. I'm still trying to improve my skills.
