How to id a fake 1943 steel cent

Coins-United States | SALMON

how to identify a fake 1943 copper centfirst, you have to check if its actually copper. Use a magnet, if it is not a 1943 copper cent it will stick to the magnet, if it is actually copper (not saying it's real) it will not stick to the magnet.second, you will have to check for altered dates, and tooling marks. look at the date and mintmark, if the 3 looks wonky and far from the rest of the date its a 1948 cent if it looks tooled with marks around the date, the 3 and the mint mark its fake.third, send it in for grading if it passes these tests, PCGS, and NGC are probably the best for grading a major error and identifying its authenticity.if you have this error you are basically an instant millionaire.stay tuned for the rest of this how-to id series.

What's Killing The Coin Collecting Hobby

Coins-World | Longstrider

Now, this is going to be an unusual blog, for me at least. I bought this coin and was all set to blog about it like normal. After getting the photos ready I noticed everything I was going to tell you about the coin is all on the photos. Crazy. I decided to do it this way and talk more about the place the coin is from. Here goes.

New Money !

Collecting Tips | slybluenote

26 Mar. 2020 Good morning folks ! First I want to thank all the folks that have helped me navigate this site so far!I've only been a "ANA" member for 2 days and I'm already getting smarter :-) ! I really appreciated thearticle that Mr. Doug Winter wrote in reference to the Ten Rules of Coin Collecting. I did read ALL tenrules, but as any good writer would do, the paragraph that preceded the rules really hit home for me. Thereality check the paragraph alluded to spurred me to proceed to the rules. Sometimes, the truth hurts !The rules make sense and as Mr. Winter indicated, some will be harder for me than others. The realitycheck Mr. Winter opened with was for me, like looking in a mirror. When I first started collecting, I wasguilty of buying what I would later learn was "Junk Money" vice "New Money" ! My collection early onwas "summarily dismissed" by more than one dealer/collector. Rule number 3 is going to be especiallyhard for me since I don't have an abundance of "Patience" to start with, but I'm a work in progress! Seebelow for an example of one of my "impulsive" buys :-) ! I'm going to have to find out where Mr. Wintergained his knowledge and to peruse some of his work, when I get an opportunity!
