Coin Albums and Cases

Coins | user_20074

I bought a Lincoln Cent set in the late 60's and it was in a Ticker and Treasure hard plastic coin album with individual capsules for each coin (see attachment). Does anyone know what the album is worth? Thanks.

November Numismatist

Coins | Haney

I know not my usual October blog, but thought I would share the quarter that inspired the article I wrote that appears in the November Numismatist. I know not the beauty that Caleb found to use in the graphics, but it is the one I bought at Reliable Coins. I guess too I need to update my bio as in addition to my interest in error coins of 1968 and 681 military payment certificates I have been working on completing a set of the classic commemorative coins. Which this piece and the Lafayette dollar are outliers in the set if you exclude the gold pieces. One of my favorite things about numismatics is the rabbit holes you can find while collecting. Sometimes they are just imagined like trying to guess how far a particular piece has traveled to arrive in your collection both in time and distance. This one though was a trip through history trying to discover if what I had read was fact and be reminded of somethings that I had once forgotten. There was a second one page article I developed for the TNA too during my trip down the Isabella rabbit hole. I have included a link below to the TNA site and you will find my article on page 17 of the December 2020 issue.http://www.tna.org/archive_news.htmEnjoyp.s. I want to credit Caleb the editor for the Numismatist first for providing another resource for my article and putting it together pulling additional graphics that I did not have.

Class VI Doubled Die

Coins | user_22121

Class VI doubled dies are truly rare. The doubling is not easily identifiable since the doubling is extra thickness on the coin with noticeable doubling lines. The coin is the class of DDO discovered on a 2019 Lincoln cent I have discovered and classified as NGC MS66 DDO.

Occluded Gas

Coins | user_22121

Occluded gas occurs when there is reside on the surface of a coin from the wash tank. The gas resides escapes when the coin is plated, creating bubbles on the surface of the coin. More familiar to the late 1980s, when the mint was experiencing cleaning issues from the wash tank. Although not as common, there are coins dated in the 1990s and after with occluded gas issues.In the first photo is a 1982-D Lincoln cent with extensive gas bubbles encapsulated by NGC. The second photo shows a rare 2021 Lincoln cent with occuled gas.Stan McDonald - Author of error coin guides

Class II Doubled Die

Coins | user_22121

A Class two doubled die shows the strongest doubling toward the coin's rim or doubling toward the center of the coin. Error collectors highly seek coins with a class two doubling, and some of these coins are of significant value. There are 1958 and 1964 Lincoln cents with strong class II doubling, as shown in the photos. These are just two of the many class II DDO coins that collectors have located and encapsulated.Stan - Author of Error Coin Guides
