I found this at midnight today in a circulated bankroll from a bank box of U.S. Pennies.The dies hit very hard to produce this one and I also don't see any signs that the Mint polished the dies. Somewhat a unexpected find. Man. I love when the Dies Clash very hard. It must of been the couple few that came out of the Mint before the operator caught the error.

Boy, that suckers minimum clearance adjustment was WAY off!. Even see the memorial sides through LIBERTY, musta been angled when it hit. Neat!

Thank you Crazyb0. It was a angled hit when the Dies Clashed. This is what you call a true Die Clashing.

That's a very nice unabraded clash! It's great to see them before the mint tries to polish them away. It's also pretty cool to see one that doesn't have the typical 5 +\- degrees of rotation. It looks like the obverse and reverse were aligned really well. Pretty coin!

Thank you Jay. It was the best one I've found. I like how it's unabraided and how the Clash is aligned very well.

-the Philadelphia mint, 1:35 A.M-
"This die hasn't been brushed up in a while.. might as well do it while I'm here"
-the Philadelphia mint, 2:10 A.M-
"Now, how do I release it?! This dang die won't loosen!"
CLANG!!
"Ehm.. I'm sure no one will notice..."

Lol Mark! I guess I'm a crazy person who escaped out of the nut house... just kidding. I actually did find it at midnight today. It's just I posted it later in the day because I was too tired to post it.
