    Nothing about this suggests that it is a mint error. I hate when PCGS does this.

    It's not like this planchet existed at the time for the production of another coin that could have been accidentally struck, or the care required to make a uniface strike could have been employed by accident.

    I agree. It degrades the error community and collectors when they attribute intention mint employee subterfuge and intentionally created collector "things" and call it an authentic error. Might as well make blanks out of 50 different alloys and run them through the press for a whole "collectible series of errors".

    An unintentional wrong planchet strike is an error, a doubled die is an error, a 40 percent offstrike is an error, this is simply a "manufactured collectible". One proof is what @Jaelus mentioned in that there was not a PT blank at the mint "sitting around". The second is that someone had to intentionally put in a blank reverse. You cannot strike a coin with only one die, and if this were a true wrong planchet error it would have also struck the reverse die as well.
