    1999-D 25C Delaware State Quarter -- Struck Off-Center on a Jefferson Nickel Planchet -- MS64 ANACS. A double mint error, struck 40% off center toward 10:30 relative to the statehood side, on a planchet intended for Jefferson nickel dies. Both the date and mintmark are complete, with the mintmark found below the U in TRUST. The off-center strike makes Caesar Rodney a "Headless Horseman." His name and DELAWARE are off the flan, as is UNITED, LIBERTY, and (appropriately) QUARTER DOLLAR. Most of the Washington portrait is present. Over the years, we have auctioned several examples of 1999-D Delaware quarters on nickel planchets, but those mint errors lacked the dramatic off-center appearance of the present lot.
