    1987-P Nickel, AU58
    Struck on a Clad Stock Planchet

    1987-P 5C Jefferson Nickel -- Struck on Clad Stock -- AU58 NGC. 4.22 gm. The newer NGC holder clearly shows the edge of this coin, which is divided into the dark brown and gray bands typical of clad dimes through halves. Apparently, clad strip intended for quarters was rolled to the thickness for Jefferson nickels and sent through a nickel planchet cutter, resulting in the present untoned and satiny error coin. The left-side rims are softly struck, and the fields display an orange-peel texture due to long-in-use dies.
    From The New England Collection of Error Coins.
