  • Repunched mint marks - Before 1909, coins were made w/o the mint mark. They were put on after the fact by hand which took a couple of strikes. The second strike was not always properly aligned with the first.
  • Varieties are all made from one die.
  • Errors are unique.
  • Chop marks - Marks that foreign countries (typically in the Orient) used to indicate that a coin has been verified. Merchants would mark the coin so that it would not have to be verified again.
