Found this on top of a coin press at Disney. The coin looks like it had some gunk on it and got clogged.


I collect error coins and I've looked for offcenter elongated coins and this one takes the cake!

This particular short article is almost five years old now, but worth the look, as is the website on the whole, which has many other articles on elongateds dating up to the present:

Nice article, and neat coin!

I've got one of those 1893 pieces (on an IHC, forgot the date) - found it randomly in a bargain bin a few years ago - but it had been misplaced since shortly after purchase, and I vaguely recall having taken some pics of it but they also appear to have gone missing.

Another Geronimo pressed in Tombstone yesterday.

1886 was the year of the Chiricahua warrior's final surrender to the U.S. authorities.

I was not even aware that these elongated coins existed until I received this freebie at a LCS.
Since then I have learned from a fellow CCF member (Commems) that this is a coin produced by Don Adam during the 1970's commemorating U.S. coinage. It is an example of this set recognizing the Jefferson nickel. There was apparently 38 U.S. coins recognized in this set.
The obverse in a 1955 Jefferson while the obverse depicts both obverse and reverse images of this issue.
I do not know the significance of the 30 following the designers initials. I have also observed that there appears to be a cud on the reverse @ 9k.
I was hoping to get something more familiar to me in this give away,but luck of the draw I guess.
I have no interest in this category of collecting as I am completely consumed in Lincoln cents at the moment. And that moment seems to endure. Varieties and errors.
That being said, I am sure that one of you out there is interested in this series. And others may even desire examples with die events.
If this post describes you, I would like to give this one to you.
