Completed 1922 French Indo China 10 Cent (see through?)

Post by nopistons on Thu Jun 02, 2011 1:37 pm

Hello, I have a 1922 French Indo China 10 cent coin and right above Liberty Statue's head you can see the numbers from the other side. Not sure why that is and would that increase the value or is the coin just valued for its silver? Thak you.

Hello!

I looked into some images of this, and it looks to be a striking error. Which would Raise the value.

I've forwarded this to Paul to see what he thinks.

Yes, it looks like a minting error. I believe it is called a *brockage* where the previous coin is not fully ejected and gets stuck between the die and the new coin. But usually you see the whole reverse pattern, not just the pattern around the rim. I can't tell from the photos (not big enough), but I assume the 'see-through' lettering is fully indented into the coin metal. If so, it is a minting error that would probably add $10 US dollars (or so) to the coin's value.
