PCGS 2000-P Maryland quarter struck on a nickel planchet. The coin is struck on the smaller nickel planchet, with a weight of 5 grams (normal for a quarter is 5.67), and also slightly smaller in size, with some lettering missing around the rim.
Wrong planchet errors occur when the incorrect planchet is struck in a press set up for striking a different type of coin than the planchet was intended for. In this case, a nickel planchet was fed into a press that was set up for striking Maryland quarters.
Scarce with approximately 10 examples known for this state quarter design in our estimation.
MS65 with lustrous surfaces.
