    1999-P Delaware Quarter, MS64
    Struck on an Experimental Planchet

    1999-P 25C Delaware Quarter -- Struck on an Experimental Planchet -- MS64 PCGS. The U.S. Mint apparently tested proposed manganese alloy planchets for the new "golden" Sacagawea dollar before dies for that design were available. Instead, 1999-P state quarter dies of similar diameter were used to strike a limited number of experimental planchet pieces. These are known for all five 1999 state designs (Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia, Connecticut), and all are very rare. The present unabraded peach-gold and lime-green example has a small flan flaw above the date and slightly ragged proto-rims, as made.
