    This different texture seems to be under the lettering.look how close it gets to his head . The "In God We Trust " looks like it smeared upwards. Hard to tell in pic but the20 in 2014 is almost flat. The edges are high too. Doesn't appear to be done post mint. Even the back is like this. Look how the lettering is weird. With most circulated coins there is some scratches that were done after the mint. Thoughts?

      I believe that’s called die flow. It’s what happens to an old die near the end of it’s useful striking life. They use 35 tons of pressure to mint a dime...

      Wow that's alot of pressure
    5. TubeAmp TubeAmp, 3 years ago
      Indeed and it takes its toll on the dies.

      I must confess. I thought mint error was anything that happened to the coin at the mint. So a mint actual"Error" is like a double strike or Broadstrike? Still confused.:)
    7. TubeAmp TubeAmp, 3 years ago
      I’m not saying this isn’t an error in a very broad sense that anything other than perfection is an error. Unfortunately that doesn’t make it valuable or sought after.

      Gotcha. So the sought after are the Broadstrike that affects the details of the coin and double strikes. I found when they but the obverse back of a up coming year and the front of the current year on the coin it's an error and the WAM and CLAM on certain ones. There's so much to learn

      People enjoy drama, so dramatic errors, errors that should have never left the mint, things like that, that’s what is rare and sought after.

      Could you imagine working at a mint and "accidentally" putting 3018 (computer programming these days I heard) on a 2018 .lol
