Amazing Error Coins - Die Clashes


1865 Three Cent with Triple Die Clashed Reverse

This 1865 Three Cent piece displays the remains of three very distnct clash events.  The arrows point to Libertys face clashed into the reverse die when the obverse and reverse dies struck each other when a planchet was missing from the strking chamber.  Die Clashes are fairly common on three cent pieces but three distinct clashes are significantly more rare.
