2 New Quarter Varieties!

Ok, I know I haven't written a blog post in a while. I've been busy with nearly everything but numismatic stuff over the last 6 weeks, and I've only barely had enough time to just keep up with counterfeit coin news.


Before I get to the 2 new quarter varieties, I wanted to let you know that there are 2 Facebook groups related to contemporary counterfeit coins. One is for show-and-tell (https://www.facebook.com/groups/845348399902181) and the other is for buying, selling, trading (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1228347391194280). Feel free to join either group.


Now for the new counterfeit quarter varieties.


  1. The first is a new variety of 1876 transfer die counterfeit Seated quarter (TD.2-TD.P). A notable pick-up point (PUP) for this variety is a raised dot of metal in the field and in front of stars 5 and 6. I'm still looking for a reverse PUP. This variety was identified by Owen Seymour.

  2. The second new variety is a 1911-D transfer die Barber quarter struck in copper (per a visual estimate). This variety is now known as TD.1-TD.D.


I realize both these new varieties are not the sexier hand-made die type, but that's how this subject is from time to time. However, I will have a new hand-made die struck counterfeit variety to share here in the near future from a different denomination.


OTHER UPDATES

  1. More new counterfeit coin varieties will be listed on the website in the near future (maybe later today).

  2. The next Bad Metal book draft is 87% complete. Sometime in October I will have time to continue that progress. The largest outstanding subjects include counterfeit Seated half dollars and pre-Morgan dollar types.

  3. If you have any of the following counterfeit Micro O varieties, please contact me because I need images of them for this future book.

• 1893-O VAM 9

• 1894-O VAM VNA-B

• 1896-O VAM 26

Hope you're having a great weekend and September!

Cheers,

Winston
