Triple or Quadruple Die?

Coins-United States | Struble Numismatics

I recently found this and I am confident that it is tripled but in some ways it looks like there are four levels present.

The third party graders use five power. You get this close.in any coin in circulation you will see this. Did you ever send it in. To A.N.A.C.S. Coins that were put into cellophane got damaged also. It does not protect the coin that well. Send it in so we will know!

A most fascinating coin you have there!

Level 7

What power are you using? High power will show everything on every coin. The rest of the coin looks fine.

Nicely done lad. I did think you were messing around with us. I also apologize to you. We are now good! Thanks.

My reason for the ambiguity was that if it is indeed a die variety, it is currently unknown to my knowledge, and I did want to keep it somewhat under wraps in case of a discovery piece. Again I apologize.

The coin is a 1968 P. I apologize if anyone thought I was not serious or I was playing games.

OK. Now you have gone into bizzaro land. I rescind everything I said to you. If you want to play games leave us/me out. I mistakenly thought you wanted help.

I'm not playing games,. It is a 1968 Philadelphia. I do have the right to keep some things to myself, do I not? Thanks for your advice on this and my other coins.

The year of the coin will be revealed in due time. I can say that it is not a current variety so as of now I am just researching all I can on the coin before proceeding. I will say it is pre-1980.

1968 P.

Wow... You are really being weird. I thought you wanted our help with this coin??? The year of your coin will be "revealed" in due time... Guess what... Who Cares???

Level 7

No year?. Like I said look at enough coins you will find everthing. I was going to call it a cud. NGC looks at all coins under five power. If they think it deserves a higher grade they look at ten.

Thanks for the extra photos. That is surely one jacked up coin. You say it was in a mint set? Hmmm. Can we see the obverse as well? What year is it? I'm going to go out n a limb here and say: Machine Doubling. Check these out.. Still tough to tell from photos. Good luck and let us know what it turns out to be. http://www.vamworld.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2647 http://conecaonline.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/StrikeDoublingFlyer-1.pdf

I need to see the entire coin. Maybe retained cud? Just can't tell without more data.

I can guarantee it’s not post mint damage. I opened a sealed mint set and the coin is still in the cellophane. It is a quarter.

After mint damage. I have seen some.real bad. This isn't that bad. Tell us the coin. The year and a picture. It looks like rim damage.

Level 5

Post mint damage, I think

It's Mokie

Level 6

Hard to make an assessment with that photo.

What is this?? How about a hint and a full coin shot??

Level 6

Could you tell us what coin this is...

I. R. Bama

Level 5

Do you see that all over the coin or in that one spot?

Golfer

Level 5
