Perhaps this has already been started somewhere but thought I would bring it up again as I am searching for a 1963 Dime with an open mouth. A friend and I have been searching for such a coin for over two years. I know such coins are not considered errors, but they are, we know they are caused by wear and worn die's of the mint and all the other drama which we have no interest. We simply wish to complete the collection. For whatever reason the 1963 seems to be more difficult to find. We collect for fun and the hunt. Nine brothers and I had an amazing world collection of error coins with the USA being the largest part of our collections. If anyone has one and would like to share, please let me know, thank you

    And again I will tell you that this belongs in the BST not the US coin forum.

  • first i do not know what BST means, I'm trying to find out why this coin is so difficult to find

    This is not a variety, if you find this of interest that is great, but using your own made up descriptions is not going to help your cause. Perhaps a photo of what you seek will better enlighten everyone. Also starting multiple threads for the same thing will ultimately only get you a lot of snarky replies and put you on the ignore list for many.

  • For myself and our membership, is it a variety. I first posted on our cell and wasn't sure if it had even made it online, couldn't tell. The description is what we are looking for, how else would one identify. New groups, new members, and even older collectors refer to this dime as the open mouth variety, thanks for the information, we'll keep it in mind. Naturally, like any forum, you have the snarks and the trolls who add no value to the conversation and therefore we'd see such a reply for what it is and continue with serious information. Again thank you for your reply.

  • On a serious note, we have managed to locate at least one open mouth dime from 1946 through 1963 then from 1964-2023, the 2023 s - is in a mint year set, therefore enclosed and wonderful, but have not seen anything written on it or about it.

    So, essentially a die polishing variety. Hello two feathers.

  • Another coin we are searching for is a 2015 penny with VDB overstruck with iii




    I have attached photos here, not sure if its an iii or some other mark, has anyone seem the same? or similar?

    Not overstruck just damaged.

    Bull squat, I read through that coin talk thread and you should be ashamed of yourself.

    How would you overstrike just a tiny piece of the coin?

    I explained it on your other thread

  • IN any event, these are the two coins of interest with our membership at the moment. The coin with the overstrike is or has been the topic of interest, we looked at two other coins that we first thought were a match but upon viewing arn't the overstrike is interesting because it is so clear that it is not just a fallen piece of scrap metal or something and then on the shoulder there is what appears to be a cloth pattern on the 2015 D. Have a good day everyone our best to all, thank you in advance for information on these two...

    That could be a "strike through" which is very different than an "overstrike".

  • Thank you jm, hadn't thought of that, will forward that to the group to research, great info, will share what we come up with, we send most coins to ICG, they provide excellent feed back.

    Yes I noticed that as well, clearly a big mess, reminds me of when dealers were hyping and scamming buyers with the "BIE" cents many years back.

    Found an Extraordinary Error Penny at Walmart! Your Expertise Needed!

    Hi everyone,

    I'm excited to share a remarkable find I made with you all today. While exploring the wonderful world of squirming on the Walmart parking lot (don't judge!), I stumbled upon a penny unlike any I've ever seen before. This little treasure boasts a fascinating combination of errors that has me buzzing with curiosity.

    Here's what I observed:

    • Multiple Doubled Dies: Both sides exhibit doubled design elements, some with dramatic thickness variations, creating a unique and eye-catching effect.
    • Overstrikes: A faint outline of another design seems to lurk beneath the main design, hinting at a multi-strike process on the same planchet.
    • Off-Center Strikes: The design elements are playfully off-kilter, adding a touch of charm and individuality to the coin's character.
    • Struck-Through Errors: Tiny particles are embedded within the metal, adding a unique texture and whispering a story of a foreign object's encounter with the minting process.
    • Repunched Dates and Mintmark: Upon closer inspection, I noticed evidence of corrections on both the date and mintmark, further enhancing the mystery and intrigue of this piece.
    • Struck on Wrong Planchet: This penny might have found itself on a planchet meant for another denomination, adding yet another layer of wonder to its narrative.

    Now, while I'm passionate about collecting coins, I readily admit that I'm not an expert on error coins. This is where your expertise comes in!

    Here are my specific questions:

    1. Identification: Can you help me identify the specific types of doubled dies and overstrikes present on this unique penny?
    2. Confirmation: Did my eyes deceive me? Are my observations regarding the off-center strikes, struck-through errors, repunched date/mintmark, and wrong planchet accurate?
    3. Valuation: Given the sheer number and variety of errors, along with its unconventional discovery location (a Walmart parking lot!), could you offer an estimate of its potential value?
    4. Grading Services: Which reputable grading services specialize in evaluating and authenticating such complex error coins?
    5. Further Exploration: What resources or communities would you recommend for deeper research and understanding of this fascinating penny?

    I've attached high-resolution images of this remarkable find for your analysis. I'm eager to hear your insights and unravel the mysteries of this incredible penny.

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise!

    Sincerely,

    [Your Name]
