1975 no s mint mark penny on proof planchet

I have four Lincoln cent 1975 no s mint mark proofs. Are there any buyers out there for those coins?

    That one is not well known but a No-"S" 10c did occur that year. Anything is possible, so send one to PCGS so it will be worth more.

    What the... I'm glad you know every coin struck by the U.S. Mint that exists. When you ever "discover" as many unknow varieties as I have over the years, your opinion might actually be worth something!

    "Send it in" has become a standing joke around here.

    Our usual, friendlier, protocol is to ask for pictures before we tell someone to spend $100 sending a polished coin or Chinese counterfeit to PCGS. [Not that our hosts don't appreciate the revenue. ]

    None of that makes a bit of difference, when someone has the opportunity to get helpful feedback here and thereby possibly/probably avoid throwing their money away.

    I'm sorry you feel my advice was imperfect (self edit)... never mind o:) Of course you guys <3 are correct My feedback was too premature. I hope the OP knows how to post an image of his fourpolished coins.

    FOUR discovery PROOF coins in one person's possession. It only happens if they worked for the Mint.

    I've had normal collectors come into the shop with two No "S" sets out of five still in the Mint shipping box. Or several identical varieties in the same original roll. The fact that he has four coins and did not post an image, made influenced my original opinion: "Send one in to PCGS."

    But the ones you saw weren't discovery coins...50 years after release.

    I’m not a smart numismatist, a scrub, indeed. But I can tell the side of coin when it lands.

    It can happen in roll coins. I have a roll of nickels that out of the 40 there are 30 with the same (or nearly identical), strikethrough. But, 4 error coins in the same shipment seems a bit of a stretch but I suppose it could happen...people do hit the Powerball from time to time.
    The 4 coins, as indicated, would not only be a new discovery but highly valuable once authenticated... not so much without.

    So, without pics, just send those puppies to PCGS and then go collect the winnings. With posting of pics you might get some real accurate responses.

    I'm rooting for a new discovery!!

    After I re-read this I realized just how inappropriate it is.

    I'll take a Fraz over that version of Insider3 any day. :/

    (Maybe you should reserve "Insider4" just in case.)

    Back to the topic at hand....

    Yes, a new inexperienced poster could make a huge discovery, and I sincerely hope that happens here. (I am characterizing the poster that way only because they seem unsure if there is any value to such a discovery). But the odds are overwhelming not in favor of that.

    If photos are ever posted I assume we'll see four BU cents. But I'll be ecstatic if they turn out to be real.

    Stranger things have happened in terms of unusual coins existing for decades before someone recognizes it. And while it would exciting to see something like this happen, this sort of thing happens when it is least expected.

    Let's try to refrain from judging until there is something to judge... I know... it reads like some foreign concept that should apply to everyone else.

    Experience the World through Numismatics...it's more than you can imagine.

    Hey, mule farmers are entitled to an opinion too. In fact, I wouldn't think their opinion was funny either. They may be filthy rich farmers with marvelous coin collections they are keeping secret from us. o:)

    The fact that the OP hasn't bothered to return to the thread in 7 hours tells me all I need to know. Either you guys are getting trolled or OP knows there aren't any suckers here.

    No. There literally are only two ways it could happen:
    1. Mint shenanigans
    2. The Mint only made 4 abs they all ended up in this guy's order

    I don't think that has been a problem for new members for a while, I think they fixed it.

    The OP checked in about 45 minutes ago and didn't post anything here.
