    Gem Bonded Pair 1981-P Nickel

    1981-P 5C Jefferson Nickel--Bonded Pair--MS65 NGC. Ex: New England Collection. The feeder fingers passed two planchets instead of the expected single planchet between the dies. The adjacent planchets, both off center, were struck simultaneously, and metal movement during the strike fused together the edges of the two pieces. The resulting coin, from two planchets, is lustrous and lightly toned with bold detail on the major devices (the steps are full, although undesignated as such) and extreme distortion on the peripheral legends. Careful rotation confirms the date as 1981.
    From The New England Collection of Error Coins.
