1c Zinc Lincoln Cent Die Cap & Clashed Die Cap Strike MS-62 RB


The coin is a die cap & clashed cap strike, with the coin showing a early stage brockage in the center of the design.

The error occurred when a uniface obverse die cap came in contact with the reverse (no planchet having been fed into the striking chamber) causing the die cap to "clash" with the reverse die. The central design elements of the reverse design were imparted onto the obverse cap. Then the die cap strike this coin, creating a coin with a central brockage, but absolutely no design on the outer design area. Scarce and under-appreciated brockage type.
