1968 25 cents. Broadstrike out of the collar. These are getting harder to find especially the quarters... sellers pics...
Canada 1975, 25 cents, broadstrike out of the collar... not that much off center, but cool enough to buy for my small error collection. Sellers pics...
I need to buy an errors book.
Here is the other side...
Counter collar clash
I sent the coin off to NGC for verification and weirdly it came back encapsulated only as XF ?
I think TPGs only list "errors" if requested.
You have to pay them for the service.
Actually, Canadian presses are a bit different. That coin is not broadstruck, as there is a partial collar to it. Canadian presses have very stiff collar dies, which produce results like your 25c coins, as well as other errors, including the lovely "ball cap" off-centre error to a point where the collars can literally shear the coins into elliptical (or football) planchets.
I would classify your coin as struck off-centre with a partial stiff collar.
This is a coin struck off-centre, with a stiff collar (ball cap). You can see where the collar die is pressed into the planchet that is resting on the anvil die, as the coin sits off centre on top of the collar (look on the obverse).
Now, this is when the collar die is not engaged at all, an off-centre broadstrike. The coin sits completely flat, with no ball cap or lip on the reverse.
I paid it and requested the coin was checked/verified as an error but maybe a die clash isnt an error ? its a minefield
