1925 P Pre-strike delamination with a different Reeding

Product Information

A reverse view detailing pre-strike delamination showing what missing element of the design.

A coin missing partial metal alloy does happen so often during production, and the larger the missing piece the more dramatic the error be. This can be attractive to some error collectors, but may disappoint the collectors in general that preferred a perfect MS grade coin.

What is also perplexing is that the coin edge reeding is differ than the original strike, possibly a collar used for striking foreign coins? The example shown also exhibit full band. David Lawrence of DLRC Press made a point regarding Mercury dimes that are strike with faulty planchet and or broad-struck are normally struck well in the center, so full band designation are a norm for these types of errors and varieties.
