    Holy Cow! It looks like a bullet placed into one of those giant slabs!

    :o Now that one is certainly unique... Most error coins are, but on a uniqueness scale, that one is a 70... ;) Cheers, RickO

    Cool error. I dont like the giant slab for a coin that will fit into a normal slab thou.

    That coin will not fit into a normal slab. It is way too thick. Based on the weight, there are seven planchets in there. :smile:

    I’m surprised they didn’t put a date on the slab label - it appears to be a 1996-D based on the photos.

    Also, is it missing the top coin to the cluster? The top coin should have a normal appearing obverse design and would have been the actual die cap.

    Well if its too thick thats ok. The giant slab is a must in your case.

    It is disappointing that the date is not listed on the label, but at the end of the day, it really does not matter. It is a nice piece for what it is. I would not be surprised if a coin (or two) is missing. The math works out to 7.5 planchets, so it is possible part of one broke away.

    This is kind of coin that gets made at 4:50pm on the Friday before a three-day weekend.

    That's crazy. Looks like the result of a bullet frag from being shot into a thick piece of ferrous metal

    Wonder if that thing was ejected or did it stop the equipment and have to be extracted. Peace Roy

    It's so refreshing to see a real mint error without the use of a magnifying glass, loupe or scanning electron microscope!

    The coin is already put away, but the slab is a couple of inches thick.

    Really cool, but how does something like this get out of the mint?
