Here's a beautiful clashed dies piece I just ran across and missed. I was waiting to get a piece for my core collection and less than 12 hrs later, it was gone.

Post any clashed dies piece here.

    Next time I see one like that, I'll probably just pick it up. I'm getting better at figuring out which pieces can wait and which ones can't ;)

    Wow!! That is spectacular. I have a a 1948-S Washington with a very nice clash that shows Washington's profile on the reverse.

    I love clashed die examples.
    Here is a really cool and very unusual clash.
    As was explained to me by a CONECA guru, this is an example of an oil transfer clash.
    The dies were brought together and an oil film from the reverse transferred to the obverse die. When the next coin was struck, this coin, the oil left an impression or rather a ghost image on the obverse. There is no depression in the metal, only an image of the reverse die shown on the obverse. Really cool.
    I have more pics on a different hard drive that I can show, but here is a quick example so you can see the effect.
    Note the O and N upside down and reversed from UNITED and OF
    Sorry for the old pics.

    Some coins are just plain "Interesting"

    I used to have this one; 1869 3CN DDR and a pretty strong die clash too! Even part of the date is at the top of the reverse.

    Lots of clashing on both sides (except for scroll to left wing...that's a die break).

    This was my coin and it did just sell.

    One of the more impressive and deep clashed dies that I have seen.

    I truly believe in buying and selling some of the best most eye appealing major (modern) error coins types.

    That's the strongest clash I've seen of a Jeff 5c-a real beauty! I don't know why visually impressive clashes like that aren't much more popular.

    Here's one on a 1913 Var 1 Buff 5c that's known as the "Lone Ranger" variety, so named by Bill Fivaz who wrote an article for "Coin World" on these a number of years ago.

    A little off topic, but I bought the below coin from the same seller at the same time. Might be part of a dated error coin set or not .....

    Nothing to fancy here...Is this a planchet (error) that flipped, or a clash of sorts ?

    Much more visible in-person than these old small photos show.

    There were several in the same roll will varying degrees of clashing, especially with the pillars and other parts of the Lincoln Memorial showing on the obverse. A strong raised area appears above the Y in LIBERTY.

    Here's a Roosevelt with a nice clash. It's actually a double clash with rotation between each clash.

    Ive seen a couple of this specific clash over the years and have been meaning to pick one up. Very nice!

    Notice how the clash extended even into some of the recessed parts of the die.

    This is the obverse of the 1813 O.110. It's a wreck.

    Besides the obviously heavily worn die (lack of denticles, stars and date numerals drawn to the edge) it suffered from repeated clashing. That bulge you see at Liberty's chin is common enough. It's from significant lapping to remove eagle's left wing. In spite of that the dies clashed multiple times more. Note the triple clash of the scroll just above the date.

    Remarkably, the die held together through all this. It is almost entirely free of die cracks...just a small vertical crack left of the date.

    Here is a bust quarter with pretty extensive clashing, including the scroll under the bust and the date clashed into "States" on the reverse.
