1901-O $10 with the largest obverse lamination known on top and a smaller in front of Ms. Liberty's eye.

Be careful! The delamination police might confiscate that!

If you any of you have an accumulation of 1943 Steel cents or 1942-5 Wartime nickels you stand a good chance of finding a piece with a lamination. Laminations are fairly common on those coins, especially the nickels.

Dumb rookie question- are laminations good things from a value perspective, or a negative?

Is it considered a cool error, or "damaged"?

I've got a 1918-D Buffalo with a lamination on the reverse, I'd just like to know whether to love it or hate it.

Thanks.

Minor laminations are very common and don't add to the value of the coin and may distract.

Major eye appealing lamination errors do carry a premium.

true they add little to the coin but to me they make the coin interesting to own, despite being common they are still a neat error to own

Thanks, I like it, I guess at the end of the day that's what counts.

I just have to be careful with my Dansco when I pull out the plastic insert, otherwise it "hangs" on the lamination.

Now if I had a gold lamination error, I'd be sure to collect any pieces that flaked off / de-laminated
