I just got this one back from PCGS:

https://www.PCGS.com/cert/40651404

There are six graded at MS-67, and I once owned them all. I traded my first MS-67 to CCF member Ty (the twoonie guy), and my most recent one is being sold to a PCGS Registry collector in Toronto, for a very strong price. This one, I might just tuck away for a while...

If you click on the photo in the link, you'll get an excellent reference image on what a 1996 struck on a German Planchet looks like, fresh off the dies.

DBM - this one is from the same roll, that I made those sets and sold on eBay. I believe you bought a set from me.

Yes I did buy a set from you.
I bow to your expertise.
I was making a set of toonies for one of my grandsons, it was the best way to obtain a genuine German planchet at a reasonable price.
Mine was not MS67.
"Dipping" is not considered cleaning...

Is there any way to identify these German planchets without professional analysis?

Very nice. Wild striations on the obverse on inner rim,
looking like radial striations around 7 o'clock inner rim.
Very much Specimen appearance.

Until you look at the raised border separating the ring and core on 1996 specimen coins, and the outer rim edge.

1. tons of experience, handling and examining mint state coins. I have opened and examined at least 40 mint rolls from 1996 over the years.

2. proper lighting.

You can only do this on mint state coins (i.e., never circulated into pocket change). In the learning process, I sacrificed several "questionable" coins by popping the cores and confirming if I was right or wrong (German planchets have grooved cores)

There is an excellent article in the CN Journal on this topic, if you are an RCNA member, you can look up the author 'Flamenbaum' and find it.
