Mint Error News Magazine #25Mike Byers has published the newest quarterly edition of Mint Error News Magazine. Issue #25 brings the very latest in mint error and variety coin news and information.

As always, the magazine offers excellent photos that direct the reader right to the substance of coin errors. And the included error coin price guides compiled by Al Levy (alscoins.com) is a must have reference that provides a comprehensive listing of recent eBay closing prices with descriptions, grades and notes.

The cover story for Issue #25 provides high resolution photos of the the latest known proof U.S. coin struck on an elliptical planchet — only three are now known to exist. The most recent is a NGC certified John Q. Adams Presidential $1 Coin. The second discovered was a Proof Jefferson Presidential $1 coin, which Byers showcased in Issue #23, and the first was a proof Utah quarter.

You can view the magazine and any back issues through the Mint Error News website. However, it’s always a good idea to simply download the magazine directly to your desktop so you have a fast, always-ready resource at your fingertips.

I have a 2007 james madison presidential gold dollar error. it is a blank planchet no mint marks or anything. I found it in a u.s. mint $25.00 roll of james madison gold coins, how much is this coin worth or has it been reported yet of this series?

I have a 2009 abraham linclon silver dollar proof coin. On the backside of the coin
the first s is missing in the word states. It looks like it got pulled off when
pressed. Can you tell what I should do with the coin? Also will this change the
value of the coin if so how much would it be worth? The coin came from the mint I
purchased it from the mint for myself. Any suggestion welcomed.
