October 09, 2011—The 52nd Suburban Detroit Coin Show held in Livonia, Michigan September 29-30-Oct 1 has come and gone. As was the case at the last show, the Combined Organizations of Numismatic Error Collectors of America was offered a table for me to act as the “answer man” on error-variety coins and to shoot images for my articles.
Two coins that I felt were very interesting and of a timely nature were a 2011-P Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential dollar and a 2011-P ATB Olympic quarter both of which boast strong Clashed Dies. Both coins also represent the latest and last designs to be released for this year for their respective series.
The Rutherford dollar displays spectacularly strong clash marks on both the obverse and reverse. This is one of those coins where there is no reason for me to add arrows to the images to point out the anomalies – they just reach out and grab you on both the obverse and reverse.
I’d like to thanks Chuck Sharp, the promoter of the show for giving CONECA four tables this year, not only for my work but so that CONECA members, Mike Howard and James Motley could exhibit several cases of error coins along with giving seven PowerPoint presentations spanning two days on an introduction to error-variety coins.
