    Where does the 80% Canadian silver quarter come from, and find it's way into the
    proof coining area by accident?
    These intentional errors are illegal coins I don't care how much it has sold for.
    I don't know Mike Beyers but he always has these manufactured errors and my spider sense says to stay away from this guy.

    The article is confusing. Is this the unicorn, or the "second" unicorn of this type?
    How does 2 Canadian quarters become 1970-S proof coins by accident?

    I agree. This can't easily be referred to as accidental. Employees are well vetted going in and out of the production areas.

    Well, I still like it. intentional or not. I don't think I'd buy one of them though. I'm thinking they are pretty pricey since it's technically impossible to actually happen.

    The use of the word "unique" certainly applies as it is one of a kind, the word "error" should probably be preceded by "employee assisted." LOL
    Helped or not, it is a really nice coin with the obvious details of the old coin showing through. Is this your coin @paddyman98, or from the article?
