Double Struck Undated Peace Dollar, MS62Undated $1 Peace Dollar -- Double Struck, Second Strike 80% Off Center -- MS62 NGC. The Type of 1922 with normal or low relief, with the second strike obliterating the date from the first strike. Edge reeds are visible around the entire circumference, indicating a normal first strike, albeit a trifle weak at the peripheries. Then the fun began.
A second planchet was fed partway into the press at the same time this piece was partially ejected. The second strike created a tab on the reverse that obliterated some of the letters from the first strike in that area, leaving others visible. That same strike also left a partial impression from the obverse die, showing the neck, chin, mouth, and lower hair strands at 6 o'clock.
Peace dollar errors are rare, and usually minor, such as broadstrikes, minimal off-center strikes, strike-throughs, and cracked planchets. Major errors such as this example are extremely rare in the Peace dollar series and highly priced by collectors.
