Good example showing just how fragile that copper plate is.

I like that one Chase! It's still an very nice example of Broackage and having the Copper plating split is very common with these type of errors. It's also appears to be Struck Off Center too or it could be a Broadstrike (Completely different error). I hope you buy it at a good and fair price!

Looks like a die cap issue also, given the huge memorial imprint.

You are correct E/V it is a Broadstruck as well, hoping the bids don't creep up too much.
arista, I wondered about that as well,it sure is a very different brockage than those I've seen before!
Rest in Peace

Good luck to you Chase. I have watched auctions before with these type of error coins (did not bid on them) and they usually go expensively sky high with the bidders fighting over it. You can win, but don't be surprised if the bid gets to be out of your budget range. I hope you win, but it won't be easy though.

My brain hurts on this one. But from what I can tell this was broadstruck and then struck through a capped die. Mabi something else I'm missing can't look at it no more lol. But if so how on earth would that happen without assistance? But then the reverse wouldn't look like that if it was struck through te capped die off center also. Yea I don't know can't figure this one

That's the brockage chase...prior coin didn't properly eject preventing the collar from engaging causing the broadstruck and the brockage mirror image on this planchet...it was late last night lol

Even though the coin is struck outside of the collar confines. I hesitate combining the terms brockage with broadstrike, because full details are not present on both sides. I can only assume it would be present had the strike through not occured. Thanks, Doug.

Quote:
PART VI. Striking Errors:

Broadstrikes

Definition:A coin that is struck outside the collar. The collar is the retaining ring that establishes the final diameter of the newly-struck coin. A broadstrike will expand beyond the diameter of a normal coin, sometimes drastically so.

A perfectly centered coin that is struck out-of-collar is simply called a "broadstrike". An imperfectly centered coin that is struck out-of-collar is called an "uncentered broadstrike".

In order to qualify as a broadstrike, the full design must be present on both faces. If the design is cut off on either face, it is called an "off-center strike".
