SBA what is it.

1946Hamm1946Hamm Posts: 766 ✭✭✭✭✭

Way back in 1979 I went to my local bank and got a roll of the new SBA dollars to save. I found this one in the roll. This is the only one I saved from that roll of Uncs. I don't know if it is struck thru grease or something else. The edge reeding looks like all the rest in the roll. What is your opinion?

Have a good day, Gary

    That'd be my guess too on struck through grease; but, what does it weigh? Verify that it was struck on the right stock for SBA's, and not some other denomination is what i'd do.

    Yep ... I agree with the above... I do question all the nicks and dings on a new roll from the bank.... however, I do not know the subsequent history of your coin.... i.e. in your pocket, kept with other coins etc. Cheers, RickO

    What is going on with the lettering in "In God We Trust"? Crazy strike doubling?

    Thanks for all the comments. I thought it was struck thru grease. The marks on the coin were there when it came out of the roll. It looks to be typical planchet marks that are usually struck out when the coin is struck. Since the grease kept it from being fully struck the planchet marks remain. The marks are planchet marks not wear marks.

    Have a good day, Gary

    Looks like struck thru grease on both sides.

    No idea on value, but nice find from a roll.

    Nice error.
    Should have some value.....I would value it at $25-$30 but that's just a number that popped into my head.

  • JBKJBK Posts: 14,717 ✭✭✭✭✭

    That kind of stinks. At that price level it isn't worth slabbing but without a label officially declaring what the coin is, he will have to re-explain or re-justify the error determination every time he shows it to someone (or sells it).

    But it is still a nice find.

    As I mentioned in previous post; probably struck though grease- but, here is an example of a quarter that was struck on dime stock so you are aware what I was referring to in previous post. See how the thinner stock not intended for the denomination can give the impression of struck through grease? Pretty cool effect. Anyway, nice find!

    This 1970-D quarter weighs 4.23 grams. Normal weight should be 5.67 grams.
