Please explain what you are seeing as a planchet error.
Also orient your pictures properly, it makes it easier on us.

@tiffa, as noted above, giving us more information about what you are seeing with the coin in hand allows us to provide you with a more educated opinion of what you have. Is it maybe the gold color that you are talking about? It is hard to know if that is real or just an artifact of your photography. Thx.

Looks like it got a plating treatment to give it that gold tone we see. If that is what you are referring to, then it is not an error but just damage in my eyes..

This doesn't look like any known error. Most likely an impaired proof coin that was plated/artificially toned to give it that golden color.

Plated. On the edge you would see the copper layer on these. These were very unpopular as they were often spent as a quarter. (Because of the cladding and copper color on the edge of the coin, that looked quarters. This one looks like it is a proof that was plated.

Sorry for being so vague....hopefully these pictures are a little better... From what I gathered (watching hours of videos) I thought they would never purposely color any planchet?

They were not a mint error, but someone plated them later after it was in circulation or altered to trick someone. It is not a mint error. Just a problem coin now. While it is a proof coin, the altering would not be plus to a seasoned collector. New beginners, don't realize it was altered. Wile there are examples of these with the wrong planchet color, that year there were no gold dollars struck. It was not until many years later did that come into play.

They should have looked like this:

But the opposite also happened:


This is a burnished example, but the color is the right color for that year.

But on your coin this couldn't happen from the mint. The idea didn't come into play until 1999.
