Collar Die Clash Mint Error

Ads by eBayCertified Mint Errors – Silver Dollars – Silver Half Dollars – Silver EaglesGold Eagles

A partial collar strike, aka rail road rim on reeded coins, is when the die partly strikes the top edge of the collar die. This indents that area of the die so when it strikes a coin it imparts what appears to be a double rim.

Not to be confused with Flanning which is when metal is pushed up on the rim from the coin not being seated properly in the coining chamber or the die was tilted.
