May Membership Meeting
Wed., May 5, 1999 Central Lutheran Church

7:30 PM Meeting


 

FROM YOUR EDITORS

We banged the gavel at 7:32 and started the meeting by giving away some coins. The door prize, a 1986 Statue of Liberty Commemorative Dollar, was given to Mark Nagy. The membership prize, a 1923 BU Peace Dollar, was given to Robert Hall.

The seminar (our first in 3 years) was summarized by Larry Nakata- it will be held at the Westeoast International Inn - September 10th to the 12th - lunches and refreshments will be provided. Bill Fivaz, the premier numismatic educator, will be conveying knowledge on coin grading and counterfeit detection- subjects important to collectors as well as those working in coin shops. Bill Fivaz is easy to learn from and gives seminars the feeling of a social event. The cost will be $245 and we still need a half dozen more member commitments. The outcome of this will determine our future seminars.

The Young Numismatist's Donation Auction will take up most of our May 5th meeting and part of our June meeting. We have over 115 lots including many books. A list is in this newsletter. Money from this auction will go towards the YN Program.

The summer picnic will be at Kinkaid Park - July 11th. We will be barbecuing and everyone is invited to bring a side dish. Events for the picnic are still in the planning stages- we are open to suggestions.

The coin show at the Northway Mall is over now but more are planned for the future. There will be a coin show at the Cottonwood Creek Mall in Wasilla on May 1st and 2nd.

Ben Guild has started selling coins at the "Hole in the Wall Coin Company" in Eagle River- drop by and say hello.

Bill Hamilton was to tell us what it is like to be a coin dealer, but was too sick to make the meeting (no doubt some ailment he caught from the general public). He did, however, send along some thoughts as well as some example coins. Long before the shop opens. Bill is checking the coin and metals market on his computer. Then it's in the shop identifying, grading, and pricing the eclectic variety of coins that came in the day before - as well as restocking the shelves. This is periodically interrupted by a range of customers. Everyone from the those who want to buy, know coins, and know what they want.... to those that want to sell, don't know coins, and don't know what they have. Then there is the odd character peddling a counterfeit or a "Elvis Double Eagle". They are sure that it must be worth at least $20 because it is an American Double Eagle- and even has two eagles on the reverse. Roy Brown had some counterfeit coin stories and Carl buys counterfeit gold coins for their gold value. Carl has a small display of counterfeit gold coins in his shop. We did not talk about the lure of coins and gold to robbers - we knew the stories.

It became apparent that being a coin dealer is work fraught with danger (mostly financial) and that knowing a good coin dealer is helpful in avoiding counterfeits and the odd overpriced Elvis Double Eagle.....

We need your support.

As there was no further business, the meeting adjourned at 8:45 PM.

 

YN CORNER
by Larry Nakata (Member #41)

We had a pretty good turnout of YNs and parents at the April 9th YN meeting. In fact the meeting was filled to capacity that evening.

The topic covered at this meeting was "Collecting Error and Variety Coins for the YN / Part II". This session was a continuation of last month's topic on Error and Variety coins. In last month's session we covered the minting process and what causes doubled die, repunched mint mark (RPM), & over mint mark (OMM) coins.

This month's session reviewed the minting process and how errors and varieties are caused as a result of mistakes made during planchet (or coin blank) production. Also discussed was how errors and varieties occur because of a malfunction of the coinage press... which can produce incorrectly formed coins.

The YNs saw lots of examples of clipped planchets, doubled die varieties, defective planchet errors, broadstrike errors, and off center striking errors. Thanks go to member Ben Guild for providing us these error coins.

The key point that I want to emphasize to YNs is that these type coins are very collectable and can commonly be found in your every day loose change. Such coins can command a premium price.

We went over books that are available at the Loussac Library and from our local coin dealers on the subject of "Errors and Varieties". These books have lots of good information to help the YN.

The evening wrapped up with all the YNs and their parents "cherrypicking" through a U.S. Mint bag of 1989-D Lincoln cents.... some 5000 pennies in uncirculated condition. Thanks go to Roy Brown for providing us with that bag of pennies. The 1989-D U.S. Mint bag was specifically chosen since there was a good possibility of finding repunched mint mark (RPM) pennies. The "Lincoln Cent / Mint Mark Varieties Book" by Brian Allen and John Wexler lists 9 different RPM varieties for the 1989-D Lincoln cent worth anywhere from $5 to $10 each. In "cherrypicking" through some of the coins in that bag, I saw several RPMs.

The YNs had a great time "cherrypicking" through the pennies with the gloves we provided for the session. I noted the gloves were a bit large for their hands. However.... if washed and dried in the dryer, they should shrink down to proper size for the YN hands.

Needless to say... the YNs who came to the event went home with lots of rolls of uncirculated 1989-D Lincoln cents. I'm sure they are having a great time "cherrypicking" through all those rolls. I believe there are a number of repunched mint marks (RPMs) that they will find. Hold onto the 1989-D uncirculated Lincoln cent rolls. Those BU rolls should appreciate in value as the years go by.

If any YNs find a possible "error or variety" while cherrypicking your BU rolls, bring them to our next YN meeting on Friday, May 14th. We'll take a look at what you found.

By the way.... Isaac Croas was the winner of the YN door prize, a 1971 Denver Mint set. Thanks go to Roy Brown for providing the door prize.

Our May 14th YN meeting will be on "Collecting Proof Coins for the YN". It should be a very good session with a nice display of proof coins for our YNs to see.

I also want to remind all YNs that we will have our YN Donation Coin Auction planned for the May 5th membership meeting at the Central Lutheran Church. I would like to see a good turnout for this event. Proceeds from the auction go into funding the YN Program.

One final thing.... there will be a coin seminar hosted by the Anchorage Coin Club on September 10-12. YNs will be allowed to attend this seminar for free. The seminar will cover the subject of "Grading and Counterfeit Detection".

The event to be held at the Westcoast International Inn. The instructor, Bill Fivaz, is coming all the way from Georgia for this seminar. Lunches and refreshments will be provided for YNs who attend this event. Those YNs interested in attending ....please get with me.

See you at the May 5th Membership meeting (and Coin Auction).....

COLLECTING ERROR AND VARIETY COINS
by Larry Nakata (Member #41)

In the last couple of YN meetings, we have been covering "Error and Variety" coins as the subject of discussion. The primary purpose was to show our YNs such coins are very collectable and can be found in everyday "loose change".

These coins can command pretty good prices. One need only look at the 1972 doubled die Lincoln cent which is listed in the Redbook as a $275 coin. There are even later date doubled die varieties of this cent: 1983 ($200), 1984 ($150), and 1995 ($35). These are modem date coins that could certainly be found in one's "loose change".

For the collector, error and variety coins can be a very affordable aspect of one's overall collection. While not an avid collector of "errors", I do have my share of such coins within my collection.

So...how does one approach collecting such coins?

First, I would recommend reading books on the subject. Among the recommended books are:

"The Cherrypicker's Guide" by Bill Fivaz and J. T. Stanton.

"The Official Price Guide to Mint Errors and Varieties" by Alan Hebert,

"The Error Encyclopedia" by Arnold Margolis,

"The RPM Book" by John Wexler and Tom Miller,

"How Error Coins Are Made in the U.S. Mints" by Arnold Margolis.

I like these books because they show how "errors & varieties" occur as a result of the minting process, the kinds of "errors and varieties" that are collectable, and pricing information.

What kind of "errors and varieties" should I collect? Such coins fall under three categories: Planchet (P), Die (D), and Strike (S) errors and varieties....otherwise known as the "PDS system". The choice of which category to collect is really one that is "in the eye of the beholder".

Striking Error - Off center Strike

Striking Error - Off center Strike

The "Die" category seems to be the most popular from what I can tell. Mistakes or changes made on the die during it's construction process results in such popular coins as the doubled die. overdate, repunched date, repunched mint mark, over mint mark, and clashed-die errors. Die-crack and die-break error/variety coins also fall under this category. I would recommend you read books on the subject so you have an understanding how such mistakes and changes occur on the die. By understanding the process, it makes it easier for your to identify these types of coins.

Planchet "errors and varieties" result from some mistake made during the construction process of the planchet, "the metal blank" on which the image of the coin is struck. Among the different planchet error/varieties are improper alloy mix, damaged or defective planchets, clipped planchets, laminated (split, broken) planchets, and even planchets in which the wrong metal was used to strike the coin. The most common coin to collect in this category seems to be the curved, or clipped, "planchet-error" coin.

This type error occurs when a coin blank is punched from out of an area of the metal strip that overlaps a hole where a previous blank was punched out. From what I've read, the bigger the curve.... the higher the price of the coin.

The "Strike" category refers to error/variety coins created during the striking process between the dies and the planchet. Within this category are such error/varieties as the double-strikes, off-center strikes, errors resulting from problems with the collar (which holds the planchet in place in the coining chamber during the striking process), rotated die strikes, and double-denomination errors (which involves the striking of a planchet by the dies of two different denominations).

Where can I find such coins? Looking through loose change is one way. You can also go to your local bank and get rolls of coins with the idea of searching, or "cherrypicking", through those rolls for "errors and varieties". A good way to find such coins is to "cherry-pick" those boxes of wheat cents and other circulated coins that every local coin dealer has at their shop. Your local coin dealer does not have the lime to "cherry-pick" every coin looking for "errors and varieties", Chances are good you'll find something. Who knows.... you might be that lucky person who "cherry-picked" that $100 coin in a coin shop's box of circulated coins that went for a quarter each. Every one of our local coin dealers here in Anchorage can tell you stories of such happenings....

        Larry Nakata.
