    Jefferson Nickel on a Dime Blank
    Saddle Struck, MS64

    Undated Jefferson Nickel -- Saddle Struck on a Dime Blank -- MS64 NGC. 2.3 gm. This multiple mint error began its life as a dime blank. It skipped the upset mill, which would have given it a rim and promoted it to planchet status. Instead, it was fed between two sets of Jefferson nickel dies (a single modern press can have several sets of dies), with each set imparting a strike approximately 85% off center. One of the obverse dies was blocked by a nickel planchet (not included). The force of the hammer dies caused the center of the unstruck portion to bend, hence the "saddle" error nomenclature. A scratch is noted on the unstruck portion of the reverse.
