Striking Errors - bronze and copper

Recommended Posts

Just curious if anyone has any examples of some higher grade bronze or copper pieces (including the decimal 1 and 2 pence) the result of striking errors, in particular:

  • Brockage 
  • Clipped planchet
  • Off-center strikes
  • Coins mistakenly struck on a bronze or copper planchet

Shouldn't be too difficult finding these for anything 20th century but never seen anything I'm happy with.

You might want to look at R. Ingram's current list and the catalog for the DNW sale on 5-6 June - both have some decent examples of modern British errors at reasonable prices/estimates.
