Many people begin their coin-collecting journey by finding an interesting coin in their pocket change, inheriting a coin collection, or acquiring a few coins by some other means finding error coins in your daily pocket change can be fun and profitable and it's very easy to do. Develop good coin-checking habits from the very beginning and you may locate error coins and die varieties that are circulating right now. And Lincoln Coin is worth finding. This book contains mint doubled dies, striking errors, planchet errors, and variations. This book includes photographs of all error types. Collectors and organizations dedicated to collecting coins' regard mint striking errors as those created by the mint stamping process. Mint striking errors include: double struck (not to be confused with doubled dies), multiple struck, indents, saddle struck, off-center, blockage, broad struck, and die caps. Many coins in circulation appear doubled, but the appearance of doubling is machine doubling and not die errors. A planchet error deemed as a transitional mistake results in minting coins on planchets intended for a previous mintage. Hope you can consult the book.
