This error is beautiful, as I see it. Lack of metal but even that, wing almost show off. Community, how would you call this error? Maybe a wrongly metal alloy?

Best regards to everyone and thanks in advance for your comments.

Looks more like a struck through debris, or an early die chip?

It is interesting how that wing part was still able to be struck on the depression area.

John, I was thinking about debris the possible cause for this error, but if it was the that, I guess wing should not be able to be seen sufering as well the debris impact.

It is contact damage, NOT a mint error, sorry. Notice the metal being pushed up at arrow tip. PSD. Post strike damage but may have happened during ejection from chamber, doubtful tho.

Hello Crazyb0, thanks for your opinion. Sorry to tell but there is no pushed metal. Here in my hands and with 10x magnifying glasses theres is no such pushed metal. On the opposite, it is very clear the flateness surrounding the gap.

Crazyb0 maybe this images helps you to see there is no pushed metal. So we do not have debris or something extrange pushing and deforming the metal. That idea is not adecuate for this.

Best Regards!

Coinfrog I understand that you think is a PMD, but I can tell you it is not. That is why I'm keep telling it is a pretty rare condition. Wing was struck over the lack of metal. Tips feather has the depresion as well, weakly struck but still showing the original design.

Essus, here's what I see. I see a double contact hit, hit first (RED), then bounced and slid to rest against feather (YELLOW) and in the BLUE direction with a pivot point at the left of both images. Coin contact in transport bags most likely. If this were a planchet flaw, the amount of detail in the indent wouldn't be as it is, it wouldn't have had enough material to work into the die.

Thanks Crazyb0, but as I´ve been telling you, rest of the coin looks perfectly normal. Here some pics from the coin still on his MInt Set plastic bag and a better perspective for you. Looks like a piece of chocolate detached, clean detached metal, no trace of friccion or extrage contact as PMD.

Hi Newbie24 I bought it on line.
