Greetings all,
I've taken a break from searching the 5 gallon jar of cents to pick through several mason jars of foreign coins I've had since the late 70s/early 80s. Found this 1957 5 pesetas with a strong upper obverse and lower reverse clash. Still learning the terminology, but am I correct in calling this a tilted die clash? No apparent clashing anywhere else. Other than the unfortunate (and unsightly) black spots, I was pleasantly surprised to find it. The Obverse is pretty clear and as far as the reverse, I can make out the O of Caudillo, the DE and the ES of Espana as well as apparent clashing of the obverse dentils at lower reverse.
Thanks for looking. Any corrections of terminology are appreciated.

100% a die clash! That is a real nice example considering it's prominence and boldness!

Thanks. I also like the lack of polishing marks, although given the location and severity of the clash, there wasn't much that could have been done.
