Looking for more details on errors? Then look no further. Let us give you the skinny on 1966 25C Struck on Cent Planchet - this error was struck on a 1966 1C planchet and is red in color. It will also be missing a portion of the rim of the coin and likely much of the lettering. This is due to the fact that the quarter area is larger than that of the wheat cent for the year. The average selling price in the past has been near $900. Struck on Five Cent Planchet - this is essentially a 1966 quarter that has been transposed onto a nickel planchet (blank). Like the struck on 5C error this coin will be missing a portion of the lettering or numbers on the top or bottom. It will still however have the same color as a regular issue quarter. These have sold for on average $550 in the past. Quarter Struck on Dime Planchet - like the other planchet errors listed above the 1966 Quarter was accidentally struck on the wrong blank (planchet). In this case it is a dime planchet. Because a quarter die is larger than a dime planchet about 20% of this coin will be missing if not more. These have sold for on average $500 with inflation calculated in.

More common 1966 Quarter Errors include ; Struck Through - when a foreign object is inserted between the planchet and the die the item will then be struck into the quarter leaving a permanent indentation. Clipped Planchet - when the die strikes the edge of a coin it clips it and looks like a cookie cutter was taken to the edge. This error is referred to as clipped or curved clip planchet. In good condition these can sell for $100 to $300 USD. Double Die - when the die strikes the planchet more than one time its a multiple die strike error. Double Die is the most common error, but potentially the coin can be struck even 3 or more times.
