    Mint Error or Mistreated Farthing?

    Is it a bad flan or just mistreated?

    I think you mean planchet and not flan.
    Looks like lamination peel to me.
    Let's hear from some better judges.

    looks to be an inferior planchet, which has started to flake.

    I think its die error. The metal can crack and make a patten like this when a small bit of the die has fallen out.

    So was I wrong in calling it a flan instead of a planchet? I thought the two were interchangeable.

    Sort of like the difference between a baby carriage and a pram. They are both rectangular boxes with hoodies on wheels but you find baby carriages in America and prams in England.

    So what then would be a "lamination peel" in numismatic terms?
