Struck On Scrap Metal Or Other Objects
Very rarely a piece of scrap metal or other object can find its way in between coin dies
whereby it is struck and an impression is left on it. Some examples are peices of scrap
metal, planchet webbing and even feeder fingers. Feeder fingers are used to load or
place a blank coin planchet into the dies but occasionally they themselves will get in
the way and be struck.
This type of error should not be confused with trial strikings of coins done officially on
other types of metal or materials. Some mints have experimented striking on plastics,
carbon and even leather. A strike should be done undeliberately by a mint to be
classed as an error.
