Does this look like a Full Band Roosie? 1977 P. Error Coin.

    Yes, but with these off-center strikes that Is very common. I have a couple of Mercs like this including a 45-P

    PCGS has only graded 9 with FB for the 1977 P. I wonder how common the 77 P off center is with FB.

    I don't think strike designations are listed on error inserts.

    That looks like a 100% Full Band strike with what I would describe as the best looking torch I've seen on a 1977 dime o/c or not. Error coin or not, it should be given the FB designation.

    Sometimes FT or FB designations
    are put on error coins, but very rarely.

    I don't think I've seen more than 4-5 of
    "FT" labels on Mint Error coins.

    I don't know if you have to request it or
    not, but it probably wouldn't hurt to put
    'FT" on the actual submission 2.5 x2.5 flip itself,
    and see what they do.

    This is VERY VERY true.

    Yep - I remember when I bought the Bolt Collection
    of Errors back in 1974, almost every 1945 Mercury
    Dime that was broad struck or off center had full
    bands. None of the Merc collectors were impressed
    with a 20% off Center '45 Dime with FB's, and none of
    the error collectors would pay a premium for such.

    Today, I'm sure they'd bring a premium.

    I think your full band is missing a saxophone player or two..... ;)

    I think its full torch, like others have stated with errors, no designation on FT

    I'm probably wrong in thinking this, but it seems to me that in the case of a major error designations like FB are not a significant issue. Similar to actual grade numerical grade, at least once you get into MS territory.

    Nice error coin.... and I agree with above.... the strike designations seem to become irrelevant or secondary when it comes to error coins.... not sure why.... I surmise it may be that the error magnitude is the priority in collectors eyes.... Cheers, RickO
