Item description

1948-S Jefferson Nickel, Obverse Lamination Error

1948-S Jefferson Nickel, VG-10

Description: 1948-S Jefferson Nickel,  Obverse Lamination Error

Error: Lamination errors are planchet errors in which the surface of a coin cracks and flakes.  It is generally believed that lamination errors are caused by contaminants in the alloy that cause the metal to separate along the horizontal plane.   Lamination errors can develop before or after the strike.

Grading Comments: VG-10 - Considerable wear has flattened most of the fine detail. Design detail is still heavily worn but the major devices and lettering are clear. Most lettering remains readable. Unless a grading services such as Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) or Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) is stated in the auction description as the source of an items grading, GoodLife Auctions uses its own good faith, contemporary grading standards and interpretations to grade stamps, coins and currency. Please note all grades are subjective and buyer should make their own visual inspection and determination about the accuracy of grading. See our Auction Terms of Sale for more information regarding grading - no returns are accepted for ungraded coins or grading inaccuracies.
