From what I understand after reading the info, IMO the lettering should be somewhere on the rim. The 2005 cent shown is a different kind of error, A Rim Restricted Second Strike, the lettering is below the rim, not on it. One of the many members with more experience should be able to give you the correct info.
I didn't see that you'd posted the link, so I posted it. The doubling could be in approximately the same place as the 1994, but I don't even know if it's on that side of the coin. The dies could have very well been inverted in 2004.
Thanks for posting the link. After reading the explanation, I'm assuming that it occurs at about the same position as the part of the legend that is duplicated, and it is always from the hammer die. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I always thought that the obverse was the hammer die. ~ Chris
Thank you for commenting!
Perfect!!! I really appreciate your response. I see where you wrote that the collar clash error can be a strong, but not infallible, indicator of specific die setup. I find these errors quite regularly when coin roll hunting and wonder if any are considered rare and worth keeping. I suppose that since the error doesn't indicate *definitively* the die setup, keeping any, say, ultra modern ATB quarters with collar clash present on the obverse rim, would not be worthwhile.
Good to know! Thanks! ~ Chris
