Another error coin featured in Numismatic News is this Sally Ride quarter struck on a nickel planchet. Interesting modern error.
A 2022 Sally Ride American Women quarter that was mistakenly struck on
a Jefferson nickel planchet has been certified by Numismatic Guaranty Company (NGC). Graded Mint Error MS-67, it is being offered by GreatCollections on April 30.
Wrong planchet errors are dramatic because they often involve the truncation of a coin's design. The smaller nickel planchet affected the words LIBERTY on the obverse as well as QUARTER DOLLAR and DR. SALLY RIDE on the reverse.
Modern technology and quality control procedures have limited the number of mint errors that find their way into circulation, so a coin like this generates excitement in the numismatic community. Bidding for the coin had already reached $6,000 more than three weeks before the sale.
