MORE ON 100 GREATEST U. S. ERROR COINS

100 Greatest U. S. Error Coins In last week's review of 100 Greatest U. S. Error Coins, I wrote:

For example, #99 on the list is a 1974 Jefferson Nickel struck on a 1973 Jefferson Nickel. 2010 price estimate? $15,000-$17,500! ... Yes, those are the right number of zeros.

Jonathan Brecher writes:

Actually, those *aren't* the right number of zeros. In an odd coincidence, that very coin sold last month at Heritage for under $2,200. I looked at the book at the ANA show, and I definitely agree that the errors are spectacular. I expect I will be getting a copy for my own bookshelf eventually. In my impression, however, the prices listed are retail prices, and very strong ones at that.

Of course, since it's rather unlikely that someone will come up with another example of any of those pieces, the prices might be considered a minor detail. Enjoy the pictures!
