    Description

    (1997-8) Schuler Bimetallic Test Piece MS66 PCGS. Copper-nickel ring with brass insert. Plain edge. Produced by Schuler, a German manufacturer of coin presses that are widely used in mints around the world. Schuler presses produce bimetallic coins. The appearance of this piece reminds us of the current two-euro coins seen today in Europe. Approximately 20 pieces were struck in 1997 or 1998 in their Michigan office in order to demonstrate the addition of Braille elements to coinage as well as to promote their own technology to produce bimetallic coins. We only know of two auction appearances of Schuler experimental strikes: an uncertified MS60 sold in February 2015, and a PCGS MS64 was offered in their November 2020 auction.
    From The Errorpalooza Collection, Part II.
