1969 Quarter Error Guide

1969 Quarter Error Guide


Off center strikes occur when the Type II planchet (rimmed) is struck by the washington quarter die off center. This is visible in the image. Off center doesn't only refer to left and right, but also up and down.

Clipped Planchet

When a planchet is punched from its original sheet of metal either on the edge of the sheet, or a punched planchet is repunched a clipped planchet error occurs.


Just a fragment of the correct planchet is present, it has been struck by the die. The missing edge may appear smooth or tapered out.

Penny 1C Planchet

There are many instances of 1969 Washington Quarters being struck on 1 C copper penny planchets. The resulting coin is smaller than a quarter and copper in color.

Nickel 5C Planchet

Struck on a nickel planchet error looks very similar to a standard quarter making this error a little harder to spot than the struck on copper penny error.

Double Die

When a type ii planchet is struck by a die more than once its considered a double die error. To spot the double strikes look closely with a magnifying glass or phone zoom at the lettering and numbers. In the image attached the double die can be seen clearly on the words "IN GOD WE TRUST"

Matted Pair

When two coins are struck together they are essentially fused together into one and called a matted pair error.
