Ha! thanks P55! I have a feeling it is split after strike but we will see...

I'm curious what your opinion on that 2x2 is. Have you seen one like before?

I started collecting in the late 1960's and had many of the old Whitman coin albums, but I don't recall ever running across Whitman-branded 2x2 holders.


Thanks hokiefan, I haven't been collecting for quite that long (early 80's) but I don't recall seeing one of these 2x2's either.

I just purchased this coin and don't have it in hand yet. I paid $15 for it and am anxious to see what is going on with that reverse (split after strike?). The fissure on obverse is pretty cool by itself. Anyways, I'll post a separate thread when I can get the photos taken. My question is about the 2x2 and if this indicates an old flip? I don't remember seeing Whitman flips stamped with the logo like this (reverse bottom left).

Not saying it was an error, but so everyone knows, there is a "scraped in" error that looks similar.

Hmm, I agree with shathe, struck through (multiple) capped die that had a previously stuck planchet fall off before this strike?

Neat looking whatever it is.

Thanks Mike and everyone else for your help with this one. It does look like an interesting sequence of events took place here to create this effect. I picked this coin up because the collar clash was so dramatic and interesting.

P55- I use a piece of card stock with a notch cut out to hold coins while photographing angles like this. That is what you're seeing in that 4th photo. I really like this photo btw because at a glance, it looks like two edges or a 3D edge is popping out on the face of this coin.

Thanks E&V, Slide Doubling does fit with what we see here and explains why the collar clash is exaggerated.

Not sure on this one so I'm open to opinions. First it appears that the grooves on the obverse face are showing metal that has been "moved" possibly indicating PSD. Perhaps this scraping occured immediately after the strike while the die was retracting? There is distortion or smearing of the devices on the obverse especially seen on IGWT. This could be related to the MAD/Collar issue but am not sure how a collar clash would cause this. The coin has that "cleaned" look with fine scratches on both sides which I'm assuming is unrelated to the error.

Quite the monster cud indeed, nice find!

I'm a little curious about the weight of this coin. It just looks heavy.

Nice looking error.

They are not called "Copper Wash" or "Sintered Planchet" errors anymore. Like the previous reply mentioned, these are "Improperly Annealed" planchet errors.

Here is a similar quarter for sale on ebay

https://www.ebay.com/itm/234115436505

Not that the quarter will sell for that much but who knows.

Here's a 1978 10c with this error. I bought this coin for $11.

Thanks Rob & Silviosi!

As I state before, this it is a very rare event in the coins production.

Thanks Silviosi, Mike does mention these errors as being quite rare in that article I linked to. It seems that these errors get lumped in with the more common pre-strike rim burrs so most people don't know the difference and so there is probably not the market for them that there otherwise might be. I would think an unusual one like this would be even more rare. Thanks again for orginally posting that article last month. It informed me of these errors and I was able to make this purchase, confident that it was an unusual error. Thanks for the photo compliment too! I was happy to see that Mike used these photos in the Coin World article.
