Please Read Before Posting A Topic

In the title please put date, denomination and type of coin design and a brief on what you are asking about.
In example: "1995 Lincoln Cent Missing 5" or "2010 Roosevelt Dime With a Line inside the rim".

All of this helps discern the different topics from each other and is much less confusing to members who want to help.
Topic titles like "how did this happen" or "help" often get ignored and lost in the confusion.

Also if you're having trouble posting an image then here's our guide for that. How To Post Images

Thanks,

Hello

I was given these coins from my Mom who passed a long time ago. Never looked until we moved to the woods and my husband put new change in certain box to try and find something cool. Lived 10 years with all the animals in a log home and 2 dogs Jeb lab and Tater we rescued in New Jersey. Got home to 3ft of snow and no electricity. It always kept us busy. Now we live in New Braunfels Texas in a nice small rental. Next to San Antonio. Yes Tesla is bringing their factory here. Lot of work here. Now I collect the wild an weird I will learn with y’all’s help the correct errors names. I will a 2013 Great Basin Nevada Statehood Quarter, that is missing the front and back sides. It is flat and brown both sides. Nice to meet you! Thank you for adding me too. Help!

Hi Jnsmom, and welcome!
But please start a new thread of your own for each new topic (including your intro). At present your post is hidden down inside someone else's thread where it won;t be seen by as many people as if it was its own thread.
