Bummer about the damage on this one as you don't see too many wheats struck through capped dies. Just posting them as I find them tonight but it's getting late so might be the last one for now.

Awesome find and congratulations tropicalbats! I would definitely keep this one in your collection, and not sell it.

While I do sell off most of the error coins I come across, I collect these. Only have about 25 of them but I add another every now and then so the collection is growing.

Nice.

I did find some humor in the two ways you described the coin. The title says "struck through ... die cap" but the description mentions "struck through capped dies." It conjured an image in my head of a complete coin die laying on its side with another die coming down on it to strike a planchet below. It doesn't seem it would end well.

Of course, the correct term is "struck through die cap."

Now that is interesting. I used struck through die cap in the title because it is shorter, no other reason. Always thought the correct term was struck through capped die.




But thinking about it, yes, struck through die cap makes more sense. Looking it up I see that the error type is called a "capped die strike" but the coin is a "struck through die cap".

Thanks for noticing that as I like to get the labels right.

I've always assumed both terms were acceptable - you certainly see both of them in common usage.
