Wow. I don't even have that type of Mint Error in my collection!
Any idea which foreign planchet it could be?
Looking at records of what other countries they minted coins for in that year?
Does foreign planchet mean out of the U.S.? Or does it mean a foreign metal got put in there on accident? If it means non-American how did it get there? If it means a foreign metal, still, how did it get there?
The US Mint was known for producing coins for other countries.
Ah... Didn't know that... I've learned many new things today
If this coin were mine, I'd resubmit it to NGC to put it in a pronged holder.
My Kennedy missing the clad layer used to be in one of the older slabs, and it became slanted like yours. It looked terrible! So, I had NGC replace it with the pronged holder.
Maybe, but don't people like the older cases better than the new ones?
@Collecting Nut Keep after it. Great to have you around.
When I was buying these from one of my
sources, a few of them came with Malaysian
Cents, and the weight, etc. were the same.
I think, but can't remember for sure, that the
Singapore cent was the same composition/weight.
I remember the first one of these I ever saw and was thinking "I've never seen that US coin!!!"
This slab isn't that old. Buy the coin, not the slab.
What??? Say it ain't so!!! I have an error that you don't have. You've really made me feel special Paddy! Your collection is impressive! Not a clue but it's obviously a lighter and slightly smaller coin.
Good question. The US Mint produces coins for some foreign countries. This type of error is hard to get.
Thank you for the suggestion.
Thanks for that information Fred.
@paddyman98 Fred has the answer to your question.
Some do and some don't but a good serious collector always buys the coin, not the case.
Not me.. I have re submitted a few mint errors found in older slabs for the new prong slab. Better presentation!
Also.. Congrats on opening up a can of worms..
I bet we will see a bunch of threads soon with the following question.. Is this a struck on foreign planchet error? How much is it worth?
There's 437.5 grains in an ounce and 480 in a troy ounce.
1.66 grams is just slightly heavier than half the weight of a copper cent.
Cool coin struck on a foreign planchet. Rare and great condition.
