No-Error Error

Do you have an error coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

When is an error not an error?
Well, never if it is an error that's it. The degree or percentage of an error is a better way to judge errors.

Clad coins are sometimes missing the top layer. In quarters and dimes the nickel layer is missing revealing the copper underneath, while cents missing the copper reveal the zinc underneath.

Anything under 100% is not very valuable (unless rare).
For missing layers of 50% or less brings no real value at all.
Find a 100% missing clad layer and you'll have an easy $250.00 even ungraded.

Now look at all the errors on this 2007 P Utah Quarter.


One small crack on the back behind the right train, very small going to the rim.

Okay let's get a closer look at the neck, it's a die crack.

Behind the stylish wig is another die crack, I'll call the spike.

But the best is missing clad layer at the rim...

about 2%.

Bringing the total value to $0.25 (U.S., of course).

Die cracks on the neck are very common among the state quarters due to the high relief. Spikes are not as common but on all coins they are often found. The missing clad layer is seen often enough to be worthless in such small amounts especially on the rim.

Hunting for errors is not for profit. While many coins contain errors very few are valuable this because when making a billion of anything a 0.1% error is still 1 million coins, actual errors may be more like 3%.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 25 Cents-Utah / United States
Year: 2007 P
Mintage: 255,000,000
Metal: 91.67% Copper 8.33% Nickel or is it?
Value: $0.25

Do you have an error coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

This sounds like a Struck Through Grease error but so minor it has no extra value.

This does not sound like a Missing Clad error it sounds like an Improperly Sintered error meaning it was burned at the mint, if verified it is about $135.00.

Sounds damaged to me but it should be weighed.

If real about $350 on average for a missing clad layer error.

Common among late stage dies which means the die was overused and about to break.
They do not carry any extra value.

Much like Jessica's description, I have Washington Quarter, but, Louisiana 2002, with only slight clad on highest points. For the most part, ALL copper. THE EDGE VERIFIES THE UNUSUALLY SUPER THICK COPPER LAYER. Wisps of nickel only on face of rim, portait and top surface of lettering-the raised portions looking straight at coin.

Different from hers, there appears to be another error in lamination where a fleck of material on the back side of the coin convexes the front side of the coin clearly revealing the lamination error on front with shiny clad on that one spot.

I'm new to all this. Don't know the value but I do have something interesting. I don't know how to grade coins. This coin is not pristine or even beautiful but surely interesting. The mix of definition and color seems to wash it out. To me it looks like the strike was defined but not deeply though the rim is.

I'd love you send you a shot if you'll post your email.

This sounds very odd, my first impression is damage.
But this could also be a true Lamination error at about $500.00.

Weighing it is the only way to find out what type of error it maybe. Use a scale with 0.01 gram accuracy.

I have a 2007-P Utah State quarter that has no visible copper. I also don't have a scale to weigh the coin but it seems noticably lighter than other quarters.

If it's actually lighter than normal, do you know what that might indicate? Also what should a standard quarter weigh? I hope to acquire a precise scale soon.

--Could be an Off-Metal error but it could also be a plated version worth nothing extra.

Also what should a standard quarter weigh?
--5.67 grams if copper-clad quarter
--6.25 grams if silver quarter
That said Off-Metal errors can weigh almost anything so yes a precise weight can narrow down the possible error.

I have a 2000 P New Hampshire quarter. It weighs approximately 4 grams, nearly a gram less than a regular clad quarter according to my digital kitchen scale, appears to be slightly thinner and is golden in color.

2000 P New Hampshire quarter. It weighs approximately 4 grams, nearly a gram less than a regular clad quarter according to my digital kitchen scale, appears to be slightly thinner and is golden in color.

I would reweigh it on a 0.01gram scale for a more accurate weight.

I looked everywhere and have not seen this error.
Yes some quarters were made of an experimental gold-colored metal but the are not thin.

Even if you get a more precise weight it still needs to be graded to verify.
Value would start at $1,000 and will go up with grade and if anyone can find out what type of metal.

Could this be a Missing Clad error?

These coins are Brass plated Steel so sometimes the steel is seen at the rim, this does not add any extra value unless you see 50% or more of the steel showing through.

Hey my names Josh, i have a question iv been searching online for maybe u can help me. I have a 1981-P quarter that is missing the clad on both side. It is a copper kind of color instead of the normal silver tone. I thought at first it might be dirty but it wont come off, so i looked to ebay to get an idea & seen some that looks identical to mine. Hopefully you can help. Thanks!

Missing Clad error about $500.00 if real.

That said acid and other things can make these. Your best bet is have several dealers and coin clubs in your area to give their opinion. Only someone looking in hand can tell a fake form real.

Weighing it may help too but errors don't all have the same weight.

I also know 1974 quarters was made in 1975 reason no 1975 quarters. No copper is showing and looks to be dd in trust and fat letters missing foot on back, your thoughts please.

Judging by the flaky appearance of the front I can conclude this coin was plated. Weight means little since the tolerance is within range.

Plating a coin outside the mint is common and damages the coin. No extra value.

All 1974 "silver" quarter turned out to be fake. A specific gravity test is your only hope besides paying for grading.

Anonymous said...

I have read what you have posted about the 1974 p quarter, it's not flaky, The flakiness in fakes comes from lead. That is tarnish, weight means a lot. Fake silver and silver clad coins weigh less then the mint produced coin. It melts through a ice cube in the matter of seconds which tells me it has silver on it If it's post mint I don't know chances are it's not for if it was dipped the fine detail wouldn't be there. I took it to a shop on Jewelers road yesterday who sells coins(but only quick flip old gold coins) He told me to take it to a true coin dealer for something is not right about it and to have it graded.As for the gravity test what does that really prove to weigh the quarter dry and wet off a wire on a wire? Does fake coins soak up water. If not to me it sounds pointless.I am not questioning your judgement, but sometime coins a dubbed fake because the coin was never released to the public as test runs are not, and the mint will never tell one that the run was made for the coin would be scraped, but one or two might get caught in the press or machine and be leaked to the public. And I am not trying to say it's real either but every test I have done points to being true but a gravity test for that hasn't been done yet I want to get it graded but don't want to pay the 300 dollar PCGS membership fee if it is fake. I will post a video of the ice test at the same above link today. And thank you for your time.

Man said...

Ice test is useless and a common myth.

Weight is not a big factor since it is within tolerance.

I said flaky I meant like paint or plated. The field of your coin is showing signs that the silver plate is beginning to rub or flake off.

I have no doubt you coin is real just that it has plated in some form.

Let me quote silver experts:
"Best bet is to determine the mass with a digital scale, and then submerge the specimen in a graduated liquid to determine volume, and compare the resultant density measurement to known values which should rule in/out the claim of silver content."

Were you to have this graded the only test they would do is a specific gravity test.

Man said...

Since you have trouble accepting my advice about your 1974 quarter I will quote other coin experts:

"Weight is not going to be sufficient to tell a 40% silver quarter from a clad. The weight difference is only .08 grams and the weight tolerance allowance is +/- .22 grams. So the weight can vary by almost three times the difference in the weights. You would have to do a specific gravity test (8.92 for clad, 9.53 for the 40% silver.)

About the only way I could see this as being a 40% silver no mint mark bicentennial would be it it was one of the coins from the one or two display sets of coins that were made for display at a PR event kicking off the bicentennial coins. They had a couple of sets of proof coins on display at the events and collectors realized that they didn't have mintmarks on them. Supposedly after the event all of the display coins were destroyed, but one or two of the no mintmark proof Ike dollars did manage to get out. I've never heard of any reports of the quarters and halves showing up. So if you REALLY believe this is a 40% silver, it really should be authenticated.

"

I also looked at Foreign Production figures and around 1974 they had few coins fitting that weight and metal so it does not look good.

a type 2 clad 1974 quarter

Is just a regular Washington quarter.
Type I is silver from 1932-1964
Type II is the Clad quarters
Type III is clad bicentennial
Type IV is silver bicentennial

These new pictures further makes me believe it was plated.

I have found plated coins before and there weights are odd but none turned out to be errors.

Again find a way to do a specific gravity test or pay PCGS $300 to do it.

Not sure what your describing but if it is an extra chunk of metal it is a Die Break and it adds no value unless the break is big.
10% or larger and covers part of the design.

Yes it is called Lamination.

On average it's about $3.00 but a lot depends on eye appeal.

Unfortunately I do not have any links to another like yours.

From the coin forum rumors there are at least 3 complete sets of double sided Euros but all are privately owned and never been to auction.

If you put it up for auction you can set the price, but if you want it appraised they will have difficulty.

Altered and probably plated for jewelry.

A no ridge quarter is not possible without serious deformities on the coin.

Sounds like a Misaligned Die error or Machine Doubling, either way no extra value.

Without a clear image I cannot imagine it being anything else.

Hello,

I have a crisp and shiny 1979 quarter(no mint mark) which appears to be missing the clad layer. Theres not a trace of nickel on it and for the year, it looks like a 'just released' quarter. The side ridges don't appear to be worn at all! With the naked eye you can see about 8-10 tiny scratches on George otherwise in excellent shape. Can you tell me anything about it? Thanks in advance.

Missing Clad Error, about $250.00 in mint state, higher if you can get it graded.

Looks damaged, it could be an error but an expert would have to look at it in hand.

Weighing it would not help.

I have a 1970 quarter with a high rim, both sides and
no serattion on the edge. Not worn edge , just never had serrations. Is it collectable?

Possible Finned Rim error but sounds more like spooning damage.

Only an expert can tell in hand or great images.

Damage, even if it is a real error, it is so easily faked it does not have value.

I have a 1979 Washington quarter. I'm not sure if it has any value, but it is definitely unique. I have never seen a coin do this before. Maybe it has just been through a lot? Anyway, it has two raised spots on the front on both sides of the head kinda like bubbles. I can't tell if it was maybe just ran over by something? I'm not sure. But, the really unique part is the back of the coin is 'peeling' away from the rest of it. I hope this makes sense. I wish I could post a photo.

Any dirt or impurity in between the layers of the coin will make this happen if exposed to extreme heat. This damage and does not add value.
