There are a couple Two Cent Piece full brockage coins out there, the last time I saw one sell it went for around $20K 10 years ago, the asking price today? It was offered with no takers at $150K a couple of years ago. Mike Byers owns it. The IHC I imagine is a bit more common in brockages, but still a rarity enough to be worthy of 5 figures these days.

Tonight was the part 2 auction of Don Bonser's errors and he didn't have any of these in his collection, a bunch of broad struck and cuds IHCs though. I watched the sale on Heritage Live. The pieces I wanted went higher than I was willing to go, so I struck out.

I think I saw this also in one of Mike Byers rare coin issue, along with other crazy brockages.

That would be because it never sold on eBay. It sold at a Heritage Signature Auction #330 at Long Beach in September, 2003.

That would not surprise me, he bought the Two Cent brockage I wanted for around $15K and has listed it for well over $100K ever since he got it. He does have the best errors around though. The only other dealer I know that specializes in these is Mike Sullivan Numismatics,

https://www.sullivannumismatics.com/mint-error

Mike always has nice stuff when I run into him at the various coin shows on the circuit (pre-Covid of course). Fred Weinberg used to handle these often, but more I've seen him dealing in the more modern errors instead of classic coinage. Occasionally Rick Snow at http://www.indiancent.com will have some neat errors.

The biggest brockage I've ever seen was at the Denver Mint, and the Director was using it as a paperweight on his desk, it can never leave the facility. It was made of cents and probably was around 120 coins thick and spread out like cup with splits on the side, easily over 100 coins were in the stack, I got to hold it but not weigh it. Actually it wasn't a simple brockage but was multiple errors, like off-center, multi struck, fused brockage, flip over strikes, etc.
