A coin with an off center strike is created when the coin blank is struck outside the collar that holds it in place when the die strikes. The coin is incorrectly centered with part of the design missing, thus revealing a certain amount of blank planchet space. Off center strike error coins can vary in value based on how far off center they are struck, and it what orientation. For instance, coins with missing dates or digits are not as desirable as those with the full date showing.
Unknown Peace Dollar ? Susan B. Clipped Planchets coin blanks Clipped Planchets are coins that are incomplete due to improperly cut blanks. Values of clipped planchets may vary depending on the coin, the type of clip and the percentage missing from what would be a normal coin. Clips are categorized as curved, straight, ragged, incomplete and elliptical. Generally the more severe and interesting the error the more valuable the coin.
These occur when a portion of the die breaks away as the consequence of a progressive crack. The repeated stress of striking planchets causes dies to wear down and, in some instances, crack.
As these cracks deepen and reach from one edge of the die face to another, that portion defined by the crack may actually fall away from the die. The planchet metal then fills this void, and the resulting coins shows a featureless blob where the die broke.
The value of error coins with cracks and cuds depends on the size and placement of the die break. Lincoln Cents copper Lincoln Cents zinc Liberty Nickels ? Jefferson Nickels —. Barber Dimes ?

Sometimes the plating is partially or completely missing, resulting in cents with a silvery looking surface on part or all of the coin. This results in a coin struck outside the retaining collar. Without the retaining collar, the coins spread out and become larger than normal coins. Also, if the coin normally has a reeded edge, it will be missing from a broadstruck coin. One thing to note on the value of broadstrikes error coins — very wide and well centered pieces will bring much higher prices than the estimates below.

There are traces of reeding on you coin, it was struck in the proper collar. The reeds are just worn off. There are coins that have been struck in the wrong collar, but this isn't one.
HommerJan 10, Please check this out. It seems I found a US quarter with no "reeding" or no outer edge error. Please let me know what you think. Last edited: May 9, BalbonMay 9, I hope you checked out the pics I attached and if you can't view the images please tell me so I can fix it. I did read the posts above. If you are referring to the quarter not so sure error because it seems faded - which is not the same to the error I got on my quarter.
Also, the weight of the coin I have has changed significantly from a standard quarter weight of 5. And imo, this weight difference would not only be due to missing clad layers. And end up to have this quarter after the process. Anyways, I really appreciate you taking the time to read my post.
Thank you very much and have a good one! BalbonMay 10, A I Anyways, I really appreciate you taking the time to read my post. The recessed copper core of the cladding is a characteristic of a coin that spent time in an acidic environment.
The low weight and "washed out" appearance also give it away. This happened after it left the mint and is PMD. OldhoopsterMay 10, How about the reeding?
It is missing.The Washington quarter was issued to commemorate the th birth anniversary of George Washington. It was designed by John Flanagan, a New York sculptor. It weighs 5. Prices of silver then were on the rise, and the Treasury continued to strike coins into However, continued coin production depleted the stock of silver and prices of the said metal kept rising that by Junesilver dollar coin had These clad coins can still be easily found.
The Coinage Act of formalized the production of dated silver quarters to dated clad quarters. In tonew clad quarters were issued with no mint marks regardless of mint of origin. Minting started on Augustand the clad era began with quarter coins.
Numismatists soundly rejected copper-nickel clad coins even though they are new and different. Most collectors were not interested with these coins for they were not silver and they were produced in such large quantities.
Supplies of these coins are plentiful. If you are a beginner who wants to start collecting or other Washington quarters, you can have a date and mint mark collection of circulated coins from It is best to have a complete collection of these Washington quarter coins, especially the silver ones though this may be quite challenging.
The coins from to are rare to find, but you can buy them from dealers. You can collect the complete series of uncirculated Washington quarters or their proof versions. If you would like to collect the whole series of Washington quarters, you need to complete a total of coins. Beginners in coin collecting can start by assembling the circulated clad quarters from Mint marks and dates are available at minimal costs.
Intermediate collectors can assemble circulated coins starting from Key dates for their circulated collection include D and S. Other dates are offered at reasonable prices or lower premium.
Advanced collectors can strive for a collection of uncirculated coins from Expect prices of some to be quite expensive, including D, S and D to name a few. Many factors are being considered to determine the value of coins.
If a dealer runs out of quarters, you cannot order from the US Mint because they do not make these coins anymore. Coin dealers usually get their supplies from fellow dealers or some people who want to sell their coins. Washington quarters are no longer produced because they have long been replaced by the by the state quarters. Circulated Washington quarters are worth their value, which is 25 cents. Uncirculated ones may hold a premium that dealers may be happy to buy for you. You must be logged in to post a comment.

Coin Talk. We have had a discussion previously on this possible error. I just finally found time to get better pictures. The previous discussion was never really settled so maybe these pics will help.
I think last discussion hinted towards possible grease fill error. Layo6Aug 25, Log in or Sign up to hide this ad. Yes the missing letters are results of grease filled dies.
Also looks like a die dent near unum. Is that a mountain or valley? Got die chip on Washingtons jaw line and below ear looks like. Tyler GratonAug 25, Layo6 likes this. HommerAug 25, When a coin is well circulated it makes it a little harder to make this diagnosis. For example if this coin was brand new, there would be no doubt about the missing letters.
In this case it could be a greaser, or it could just be worn. As it has been in circulation for over 50 years. Michael KAug 25, It was a pretty interesting find about a year ago. Still look at often as it was one of my first finds when I started collecting. I have found and learned soo much about coins since. Michael K This is why this coin makes a great discussion. I love to learn the different points of view.

HoboOct 27, The question of how the anomalies could have been produced in the coining chamber still has not been answered. Most likely because the anomalies could not have occurred in the coining chamber. I've come across similar damage and I'm going with pmd as well.
Can we get pics of the edge?
1965 Quarter error?
I think it might show that the sides in the damaged areas are thinner which may explain the metal displacement. It does show some missing metal but the pics need to be from a different angle and distance. I want to say CUD but would they have noticed the die deteriorating before it got that bad? I also think the metal is to uniform in colour to have had anything added to it.
Have you weighed it by any chance? HamhawkOct 29, I look at improbabilities, instead of possibilities. I just don't see how the last A in America on the reverse could have struck up so well if it were opposite of a cud. Lincoln CentsOct 29, This is definately PMD and extremely easy to see how this coin was damaged. The quarter has been severly damaged and looks like someone has tried to straighten it back out to use it as a quarter.
If someone wants to duplicate this damage on this quarter take a quarter and stand it up on it's edge and hammer the edge down towards the center in two places. Then lay the quarter down level and hammer the pushed down places back out to where the quarter is round again then you will have one just like in this thread. This is also why the edge of this coin is sunken in at the two placeswhen the metal was hammered back down the top and bottom part came back out faster than the center part.
I wish my mystery coin was this easy to figure out. A hammer job for sure!!Log in or Sign up. Coin Talk. I have this quarter but I can't tell if it's an error or PMD. Danielle SkaskoOct 30, Log in or Sign up to hide this ad. What are you looking at on it?
Why the 1965 Quarter is Such a Great Coin for Beginners
BoneDustOct 30, OP if your referring to the T in Trust there appears to be a die chip there-a very small piece that broke from the die. It is an error but a very minor one that occurs with monotonous regularity on coins.
Keep hunting and good luck. I would love to see a properly lighted and totally clear image of this coin The color of this coin also has me interested but I have seen normal copper-nickel clad coins look this color when the lighting in a room is not the best for images. I presume you think this coin is silver. How many grams does it weigh? When you spin it on a countertop, as it finishes spinning, does it ring with the same pitch as a normal clad quarter?
And the answer is This is the best I can do with the camera I have. Danielle SkaskoNov 1, I am wondering if the photo yellow by lighting or is the coin yellowish? If you would take a white tissue rub the coin very lightly post what color is on the tissue if you would.

Coin Talk. I found this quarter in my collection it seems to have an error in the striking process That makes it appear as if the quarter has been sanded but it is not only in the high spots but the low as well-and there seems to be right above in God we trust An error in the stamping as well can anyone shed some light on this?

Tyler GratonJul 24, Environmental damage after it left the mint. Probably acid. OldhoopsterJul 24, Fred WeinbergJul 24, It died in service to our monetary system. TreashuntJul 24, I thought it might have been acid damage as well so I took quarters of the same year-and subjected them to 3 different kinds of acid hydro chloric sulfuric and nitric None of the coins resulted in pitting Only disolving the oxidized layer.
I also put this under a microscope and found that the pitting has no scratching Or Goring and the innermost deepest part of the pit matches the exact same composition as the rest of the coin In the unaffected areas. Is that a counter-stamp above IGWT? BeeferJul 24, I'm not sure what a counter stamp is. The coin looks to have been media blasted. There are uneffected areas on each side.Eleven 1965 Quarters
Look like wires may have been taped to each side for some kind of electrolysis experiment. I would say PMD. We will never know what caused it for sure but it's just damage.
