1999 Broadstruck / ... Nickel

#1 Unread post by mhonzell » Fri Aug 17, 2018 3:22 pm

I picked up this nickel on Daniel's FB page.

The wide deformity would be a Broadstruck (or a collarless strike), but what is the overlapping planchet damage called? It's not really a brockage, as no design was transferred. The overlapping planchet received the missing portion of the design.

Also, how do you grade these?

It's an obverse brokage, struck though another coin, and broad struck out of collar.
