Wow!

From Heritage:
Undated Three-Piece "Clover Leaf" Eisenhower dollar -- Struck on Clad Dime Planchets -- PR68 Ultra Cameo NGC. The word unique is used perhaps too often by error coin catalogers, but it is the single word that best describes the present lot. Three clad dime planchets were simultaneously struck by a pair of Ike dollar dies. The planchets touched but did not overlap, and formed a "clover leaf" pattern with the top planchet centered above the remaining two planchets. Only the 1 in the date is present, and the mintmark is absent, but Earth is complete, and confirms the reverse is Type Two, struck in proof format only during 1971 and 1972. A showstopper mint error on a popular obsolete type.

I find it hard to believe that this was not deliberate.

"assisted" mint error.

Of course it's assisted, it still is what it is.

Wow! That is certainly interesting. Cool eye appeal when put together.

That's a creative one and a cool slab! I'd call it the "Dismembered" error though.

Very Cool, I wonder how they found all 3 pieces in such good shape.
Rest in Peace

That is a cool error for sure. Any idea where this one traces back to?

Clearly a fabrication rather than an error.

Certainly was "helped along the way" but still an incredible piece. Always super neat seeing these huge errors.

Shortly after the dime stamped on a nail was certified and auctioned, the Chinese no name site had tons of error coins stamped on nails for sale. I predict there are suddenly going to be a bunch of these also.
Currently working on:
Australia type set
Canada type set
Three from each country (up to 416!)
UK 20th and 21st century
IHC's! NGC certified MS-62 or better, 87%, Capital Plastics Fine or better, 97%, Caps Fine or better, 98% Dansco any x3, 90%, 63%, 37% and Coin Board for wall display, any grade, 97%.. (I may be a tad obsessed)

The Mint employee who created this mess secreted them out when he left that day.
