The latest edition of Mint Error News Magazine has been published and, as always, is free. Each issue is eagerly awaited and the magazine is a mainstay for many mint error collectors.
The magazine is on its fifth year and is published by an expert in the area, Mike Byers. It’s packed with valuable information and spectacular error coin photos.
There are several focused articles on types of errors in every magazine issue. This particular issue dives in deeper to take a look at errors in 2007 Presidential $1 Coin proofs, the 1969-S Lincoln Cent Double Die and discusses several "die cap" errors. The descriptive example photos are outstanding.
Error coin prices from Al Levy
In addition to the magazine’s information on error coins, it includes an error coin price guide by Al Levy of Al’s Coins. The price guide cointains recent sales of mint errors auctioned on eBay. Not just any mint error coin was included in the guide. They must follow a set of criteria, like:
- All lots had to have buyers
- Each lot had to have a picture
- Each lot must have had proper labeling
