    American Silver Eagle, MS62
    Struck Thru Sand Disk

    Undated Silver Eagle -- Struck Thru Sand Disk -- MS62 PCGS. An emery disc is thin, round, granular, and adhesive-backed. It is typically affixed to a buffing wheel, and was presumably used at the Mint to help prepare dies. Somehow, an emery disc with an unpeeled backing covered a silver eagle planchet at the moment of strike. The outcome is a first-year 1986 silver eagle with a normal reverse and a 100% struck-through obverse. The obverse has a rough matte appearance, as made. A thin diagonal test mark is on the right obverse. Though the date is unlisted on the PCGS insert, it is faintly evident on the coin itself.
