RE: [Error Coin Information Exchange] Rare date for dime struck on quarter stock
A certified, uncirculated specimen sells for less than a circulated, raw specimen. I noticed this when they sold.
I think it is a function of the description on the slab. Someone got a good buy.
This is the first dime I've seen carrying the date 1967 that was struck on quarter stock:
Right now, I know of quarter stock dimes dated 1965, 1966, 1967, 1968-D, and 1969-D.
Here's another rare date:
This is the only 1979-D quarter stock dime I recall seeing.
For some reason, wrong stock errors from the clad composition era are almost always from the Denver Mint. The only exceptions I know of are the 1987-P nickel on quarter stock and a 1979 quarter on dime stock.
