    1958 25C Washington Quarter -- Full First Strike Brockage of Obverse on Reverse -- PR62 PCGS.
    The present coin was struck between the obverse die and the obverse of a previously struck coin. The reverse side is a perfect brockage of the obverse design , An extremely rare mint error on a proof coin 81415050_Large.jpg lf (2).jpg lf (3).jpg

    My first thought: "Gosh, that's kind of a dumb way to do a two-up photo presentation, even if you've only got a photo of the obverse."

    My next thought: "Wow, how did that make it out of the Mint?"

    My final thought: "Huh. Apparently there IS a reverse proof I'd be interested in owning."

    I've never seen a Proof brockage before. I imagine they happen, just can't understand how they let it out of the building.

    Deliberance, incompetence, or just not caring. Or some combination of any or all.

    I work in quality assurance, so the question, "How did this make it out of production?" is the story of my life...

    If only the mistakes my company makes were worth as much as your coin:)

    Oh, and we're falling down on the job here, folks. Ahem:

    "Squeeze job! If it were a real error coin, you wouldn't see inverted letters. Somebody made this in a vise."

    For some reason, I can't get my head around how both sides are raised.
    I'm thinking that the reverse would be incuse. Then again, it is getting late.
