Little or no FG

Coins | CoinCollector7777

Yesterday I found a 1969 cent, and I looked at the reverse and I could not find any FG. Then when I looked at it with a microscope, I could barely see any FG and I think I found some doubling. Maybe it was the way the light shone on the coin, but I looked at it from the other side and it didn't look like it was doubled. I hope I found an error, because it will be my first error I found in circulation! Anyways, back to the FG, I have some pictures to show you guys to see if you think it is valuable. I looked in my error coin book and there weren't any errors on the plain 1969 cent, so I need someone to tell me if this is an error. I'm not that good with errors unless they're obvious.

Christmas Story

Coins | CoinCollector7777

Hi everyone! Here is a Christmas story from last year. So, there was this gift wrapped in wrapping paper. Yep. That's the story. Just kidding. So, anyway, I shook this gift to try to guess what it was. It felt like coins. And it was coins! And two silver certificates. Don't worry, the coins weren't that valuable, but they were silver. And there were some wheat cents that I needed for my folder. But they all were in like G condition. My brother got the same! Anyways, I had a great Christmas. I hope I get more coins!

Coins Hard to Find In Circulation

Coins | CoinCollector7777

Hey everyone, here are some coins that are hard to find in circulation:1. Silver quarters and dimes. Collectors know that they should keep them because of their silver value, so the silver coins are getting rarer and rarer.2. War nickels. They have a little bit of silver, so collectors keep them. To find them, look at the reverse and above Monticello. There should be a mintmark, even if the coin was made at Philidelphia.3. Silver half dollars. In 1964, the U.S. Mint transitioned from Franklin halves to Kennedy halves in honor of J.F.K.'s death. The halves from 1964 contain 90% silver. from 1965 to 1969, the halves contain 40% silver. I still can't find any rolls of half dollars anywhere that cost the face value, so getting good rolls of halves are hard enough for me.4. Mercury dimes, or Winged Liberty dimes. You can find these in circulation, but they are very rare. Excessive searching is needed.5. Buffalo nickels. Very hard to find. If you find one, you probably can't read its date, and dateless buffalo nickels are pretty much worthless.
