I pulled this one out a recent big search I did on nickel dollars this past fall. At first glance, this one appears to be slightly off-centre, with some rim finning on both sides.




But as I handled the coin, it felt "odd" on the rim...



This features runs evenly around the entire rim, and for nickel dollar errors, this one is very rare - in all my years of searching the big batches I go through, and hunting and buying errors at auctions and shows, this is the ONLY one I have ever found. The coin is well struck, but the collar die was not properly set I suppose? A pretty cool find for face value, and definitely a keeper!!

cool find but with you said this is the only one you have found out of all the dollars youve searched, how often do you actually look at the rim?

If you tend to hold coins by the edge, you'd be able to feel a partial collar like this one. You'd know before you even look.

I have found two on US coins only because they felt different. One quarter and one penny.

Definitely not common, nice find!

Hard to say, there is barely a rim there... but looks like it (as the reeding is missing on the hammer die half of the rim).

Awesome find, I've seen this on a US quarter before but never on any Canadian coins, but it is also something I never really thought to look for which apparently I should, an I'm glad I finally know the answer to the third die that strikes every coin! I will keep that in mind from now on.
They say coin roll hunting is like a box of chocolates, you never know what your gonna get.... I think it went something like that, I was too busy looking at coins.

This is my very first error coin I found that got me hooked.
