One sided coin

Odd & Curious Money | Harrison

This is a 1964 Jefferson nickel with one side. How i ended up with this coin is very interesting. My friend saw a kid with this coin at school. He knew I was a coin collector so he bought the coin from him. He showed it to me and i decided to buy it. I did some research on these types of coins and they can have some pretty high value. It was a hard topic to research because not many people know about these types of coins. I am very happy to own this coin and know that it is very rare!

Are you sure thats an error? It looks more like PMD to me. Maybe you could get a better picture?

I was given a die and a blank cent. I asked my friend how much I sergeant it for nothing. He said about fifty bucks. He guessed so I don't know the true value. There nice to have. Enjoy it.

If I am interested in a series, like my Flying Eagle cents, I'll collect error coins of that series. I have a Jefferson with a clipped planchet that is pretty severe. I've had several dealers give different opinions on whether it's real or just damaged after the mint.

Since I didn't see an answer to your question, PMD, "Post Mint Damage". Damage caused after leaving the mint facility in which it was struck.

Very nice error to own. I have seen error's like this before, but they are rare. Congratulations on having a nice coin for your collection. Maybe you can have in graded and certified? Would look good in a holder.

So a two planchet error? So someone else has the tail of this coin. Very interesting.
