    Can you be more specific? Part of the "Liberty" is missing. It is nothing special, just a neat curiosity. Since the coin was not supposed to look this way, I guess "MINOR" refers to a minor mint error. Call PCGS and get the truth.

    I don't even know how to look up a cert. The coin looks 100% genuine. Post a better image that does not get blurry when it is blown up.

    Just never seen a coin # that starts with a letter

    V=Variety for partial liberty variety

    Link to PCGS Cert Verification page

    https://pcgs.com/cert/

    Cert is valid,,,,, type cert number into the box in the link above, the coin number doesn't show up in population report because error's and variety's don't show up.

    What GRANDAM said and just to take it a little further, error coins are listed with the letter "E" for the first digit.

    Has it always been that way with the letters being used in the beginning? I never paid attention to errors or varities.

    It depends,,,,,,, on minor errors or varieties they use the letter E or V but on major ones they give it it’s own coin number and no letter,,,,, example would be 1972-P Ty1 - Ty2 & Ty3 Eisenhower Dollars, they all have unique coin numbers.

    In the gold dollar above leave off the “V” and enter the 7573 in pop report and you will see the pop for the 1873 open 3 $1 Gold but you can’t for the minor variety.

    Unless it has changed, the letter "E" or "V" has been used for a long time. I have a partial collar morgan that I have owned for around 10 years that has the letter "E" as a prefix to the coin number. It is not included in the pop report for the date and mintmark.

    Never new that........thanks and interesting.

    If it is a variety they have in their sets it gets a regular number. All others get E or V.
