    Lots of things are possible when it's your intention to make that sort of stuff.

    Intent? Intention? It doesn't say Mint Intention! It says Mint Error. Come on man! >:)

    Lol

    Yeah. An Ike accidentally got mixed with the cent planchets and then fed into the coin press. Could totally happen by accident. The most shocking part of this is that it wasn't the San Francisco mint.

    That was an intentionally created error in my opinion to profit off the error coin collecting community.

    Worry is the interest you pay on a debt you may not owe.

    I would not be interested in an error that in my opinion was intentionally struck.

    I'm not a fan of the obvious intentionally made error coins. I do like collecting mint errors thou.

    It seems they made some really crazy stuff especially in the early 70's.

    Great subject for discussion and thank you for the link. No doubt, some 'errors' were intentionally made, and surreptitiously removed from the Mint. This does not preclude authenticity. The coins are real, and were made in the Mint. Certainly not condoned by the Mint authorities, but nonetheless a product of the Mint. Ergo, a collectible Mint product. Cheers, RickO

    Don't mind me, I'm just jealous, upset and envious I don't have one! 🤣 😂

    This one has gotta be right up there with the family jewels! I'm sitting here asking myself how many employees working in the trades (plumbers, electricians, painters, welders, mason's and CARPENTERS) actually work on the mint production floor? Maybe all of them, I don't know.
