1924 Peace Dollar VAM5A
By John Cava

Wing break

The newest Top 50 Peace Dollar in my collection is the 1924 VAM 5A called a Wing Break. In my opinion, this is a very spectacular VAM. It is very apparent to the naked eye what is going on. Simply put, it has a large circular die break in the middle of the eagle’s wing on the reverse.

Have You Ever Purchased A Detailed Coin on Purpose?
By Patrick Jenkins

I ask this question as in the over 50 years I’ve collected I always tried my best to avoid problem coins. Yeah like you, if you’re being honest like the rest of us, you made a mistake buying or selling a coin.

Fall 2020 PAN Show Update
By James Zimmerman

Being that I live only an hour from where the Fall 2020 PAN (Pennsylvania Association of Numismatist) Coin Show was being held in Monroeville, PA (Pittsburgh Suburb), I contacted the show chairman about donating table space to our club to promote the error hobby as well as our club. PAN was gracious to give us free space for the three-day event that started Thursday October 29, 2020.

Treasures Among Treasure New Error Coins Discovered with No Value Other Than an Important Message
By Dr. Ron Brown

September 9th 2020 brought a very harsh and bitter lesson about coins and their storage. I have always written about coins I own and this time it is no different – howbeit a sad epitaph about precious variety and error coins.

About 8 PM on the 9th of September my home and all our belongings along with two autos were destroyed by wildfire in the now infamous Bear Fire of Berry Creek and Oroville CA.

Have you ever put together an exhibit to show at a coin show? Do you wonder what you get if you do?

Multiple Struck Mint Error Coins
by Denny Polly

1941 Jefferson Double Struck, 2nd Strike 70% Off-Center @ K-10 and Struck Thru Scrap on Obverse, DSR, UNC

One of my favorite mint error coin types is coins that have been struck more than once. They can be Double Struck, Triple Struck, or more. There are many variations of Multiple Struck Mint Error Coins.

Young Numismatists Program
By Logan Wostyn
Hello Everyone

I have 2 packages headed out for the mail for the 2 kids that responded last month. They will be receiving a few error coins. Remember I have error coins, loupes and scales to send out as prizes and I always send more that 1 item. Come join the fun and send me an email.

This issue I’m thinking a of a short quiz. Name the State Quarters that have known errors and what the errors are. As usual those that respond correctly will receive a package from me with error coins.

Hope everyone stays safe.
Your YN Director

Cuve’s Error-Variety-Clash Round Up 13
By Jason Cuvelier

It took me an unusually long time to locate a counter clash on this clashed no date medallion depicting the White House and the Seal of The President.
