I hope to look at it in Long Beach. What a great error to put away for the kids.

If the NGC slab and Heritage auction title are correct, isn't this a 1909 IHC struck over a 1906 Barber dime? If so, wouldn't this have to be a purposefully manipulated, contrived "error" produced clandestinely?

I was going to say that it's not an example of a Mint error, it's an example of Mint workers having fun.

If they can strike a 1970-S proof Washington quarter on a Barber quarter, why not this?

BTW, can anyone find and post a picture of the 70-S? I tried and failed.

very cool but I am fairly certain it did not occur by mistake. Errors like that tend to have been "helped" while in the mint.

All I have to say is that's weird and.......made purposely.

My mind really can't fathom that type of error occuring any other way.

Per Heritage's auction copy:

Previously, a 1906 Barber dime was produced, then became lodged in a large tote bin at the Philadelphia Mint. Some time later, this bin was filled with cent planchets, the struck dime was knocked loose, and eventually found its way into the press run for Indian cents some three years later. That is how we presume this error occurred. How else could a 1906 dime find its way to the cent press in 1909?

There you have it, the Dime was stuck in a large tote bin for a few years. Makes perfect sense.
