Struck Through Scrap Error

Very rarely a piece of metal cloth or lint may fall onto a die. When a planchet is then fed
in to be struck by the dies an imprint of whatever is in the way is left on the coin.
1963 Struck through scrap, partial brockage, error Scottish shilling.
Hus Sulo Collection
The coin above has been struck through scrap but even more interestingly the scrap piece of metal
must have been struck prior to the planchet for this coin being fed in. Once the scrap piece of metal
was struck by the reverse die it picked up the shield design. The planchet would have then be fed
in and the piece of scrap metal fallen in between the obverse die and the planchet.
Once the planchet was struck the piece of scrap metal acted as a die and left an incuse, partial
brockage imprint on the coin above.
