Mint Error News Magazine #24

The newest edition of Mint Error News Magazine, issue #24, is now available for free viewing and download. The quarterly magazine is published by Mike Byers and is an excellent tool for collectors who want to know the very latest mint error and variety coin news.

The magazine is packed with outstanding coin photos, in addition to mint error information and the error coin price guide compiled by Al Levy of Levy uses eBay to compile pages upon pages of recent error coin closing prices.

The coin photos, as often described here, are like guides in themselves. They’re superb in identifying coin errors and deepening error and variety coin knowledge.

Issue #24’s cover story discusses the unique and rare Walking Liberty Half Dollar mint error that was double stuck 50% off-center, and on a silver quarter planchet. The photos are amazing.

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.
