    Want to share an error wheatie that I recently slabbed. It is a double struck wheat cent, with both strucks off-center. Glad that it got an MS-65 BN.

    I think this type of off-center double struck is quite scare on wheat cents. Haven't seen many of these, but maybe I didn't look hard enough. I am happy that NGC puts the reverse side in front, making it a nicer presentation.

    And yes, this is the NGC slab itself.

    Really cool. Help me understand the straight edges. Was it struck on a clipped blank?

    That's one of the best D/S Both O/C Wheat cents
    I've seen. Dramatic, and lots of each strike shows.

    The top part probably was a chain strike, and
    there's a possibility it was struck with dual colllar
    dies - I see a bit of buckling in the middle.

    I know dual collars were used at least in 1964, but not sure
    if they were used pre-59....I believe so, but not positive,.
