Improperly Mixed Alloy is considered a Mint Error
Reference from Error-ref.com under Planchet Errors -
@Paddy54 I made an honest error. It's been fixed. and yes it is an error .
How can it be a mint error if the alloy wasn't made at the mint? The only raw materials I know of that was actully alloyed at the US Mint was silver from the Comstock mine at the C C mint.
Ask @Fred Weinberg. It's noted in error-ref.com as a mint error.
So are roiled thick and rolled thin planchets.
Also considered Mint Errors.
Didn't the mint at one time smelt and alloy all the metals themselves at one time?
You see the videos of the US MINT smelting large ignots of metals which then continue on the process. I don't know which ones, when they outsourced, etc.
