  • This is the second 2015 dime struck by very worn dies that has sold for over $60. http://www.ebay.com/itm/311387620267 The pattern of die wear is similar to many American the Beautiful quarters. Although it's a remarkably severe example, anything over $25 seems excessive to me. I wonder if the many bidders understood what kind of error they were fighting over?

  • Proto-rim is the term I use when referring to the raised margin of the planchet that is formed during upset. The term "rim" is non-specific. It could refer to the design rim, the proto-rim, or any number of other elevations found along the margin of a coin or planchet. While the proto-rim is always found along the margin of a planchet, the design rim can be found far from the coin...

  • It's not worth anything because it's not a mint error. Your cent was damaged outside the Mint, most likely as the result of tumbling around the fins of an industrial dryer. That's why this kind of damaged coin is called a "dryer coin". In a message dated 6/8/2015 9:08:29 P.M.

  • Yes, it was struck through a clipped planchet situated between the normal planchet and the hammer (reverse) die. I see no reason why it shouldn't have been struck fully within the collar.

  • Welcome to the group. While we don't allow price lists to be posted here, you may post photos of your coins in the Trade Bait album and wait for someone to approach you. I would guess there's not much of a demand for Manx coins here in the U.S., but you might get lucky.

  • Tough to choose. I'd go with the obverse face (the one with the counterbrockage) In a message dated 6/2/2015 10:33:34 P.M.

  • The fact that the first strike was a near-invisible strike is undoubtedly related to why the second strike's die clearance was insufficient to erase or materially affect the counterbrockage. It does appear that die clearance shrunk somewhat between the first and second strike.
