CONECA Contest prize

Coins | JudeA

So today I got my prize for winning the CONECA crossword contest! There was some pretty good stuff in it, and I will be telling you all what I got. The first thing I got was a 1960 D cent that said that if you go to variety vista then you can try to attribute it. I think it is a repunched mintmark of some sort. The next thing I got was a 2001 broadstruck cent certified by PCI, graded MS65 Red. The next thing is a 1984 D cent that is apparently partially unplated. I am not sure if this is an actual error, commet your opinion down below. The last thing I got was a magnifying loupe. It is a triplet with a 10x - 18x and a 20x - 12mm. I will be adding pictures of all these later, commet what you think about these items!

when I first joined CONECA they sent me a 1960 D/D as well and told me to attribute it. (they probably have a huge bin of those).

Nice! Cool prizes. You better go to the web site and tell us what those coins are. We all would love to see some pics. Good job. Next issue???? Thanks. Yes, that partial lamination is an error.

Congratulations on the prizes. Always fun to win stuff, especially coin related. Wish there were more contests and games to win things for everyone. I have a couple 1960 D over horizontal D coins. Maybe it's one of those? The loupe is nice.

I don't think so, I think it is a RPM of some sort, but it is definitely one of the more obscure ones, it is not noticeable at all, and I will need to get my USB microscope out to properly attribute it.
