United States Errors
These are my United States Error Coins. These are coins that somewhere
during the production process, an error was made. This can range from clipped
planchets to die cracks. You can click on any picture to bring up a larger size of
the coin.
Clipped Planchets
Year: 2008 P
Denomination: 1 Dollar
Mintage: 61,080,000
Composition: .885 copper, .060
zinc, .035 manganese, .020 nickel
Artist: Joel Iskowitz & Don
Everhart
History: This is a 2008 Andrew
Jackson Presidential dollar error.
The error shown is a clipped
planchet. This happens when the
sheet metal planchet cutter cuts a
part of the planchet before it has
time to move out of the way.
Rotated Reverse
Year: 1804
Denomination: Half Cent
Mintage: 1,055,312
Composition: Copper

minting process, when striking the
coin, one side of the die became
misaligned causing one side to be
rotated.
Waffled Cancel
Year: 2003 P
Denomination: 25 cents
Mintage: 225,000,000
Composition: .750 copper & .250
nickel
Artist: Not Available
History: This is a 2003P Missouri
State Quarter error. When this coin
went through production, it came out
substandard. The Mint therefore
used a machine to 'waffle' the coin to
cancel it. Generally these go straight
to the melter's although some
escape. This coin is certified by
NGC.
