    1999-P Pennsylvania Quarter, MS64
    On an Experimental 'Golden' Planchet

    1999-P 25C Pennsylvania Quarter -- Struck on an Experimental Planchet -- MS64 PCGS. Each of the five state quarter designs from 1999 are known struck on "golden" manganese alloy planchets. Sacagawea dollar dies were apparently unavailable for testing, so state quarter dies of similar diameter were used instead. One could argue that such pieces are patterns more than errors, since their striking was intentional and presumably authorized. In any event, they are all rare. This well struck example is smooth aside from a few hairlines. The rim is coarse, especially near QUARTER. The fields have an orange peel texture, suggesting the dies earlier struck many quarters. Spreading on PLURIBUS UNUM implies a broadstrike or undersized flan.
