It was received in one of the mint's "Coin 'n' Die" sets they sold for the State Quarters. A most pleasant surprise, considering most of them were just vanilla hunks of die steel with ground off faces.

Very nice. Is it time to change some of the VAM descriptions?

Is seeing a die like this something new (going off of JB posting it + JR'S response.) I would have thought seeing this wouldn't be as special as this thread is making it seem. Thats almost as neat as seeing one myself for the first time ☺

Wow! Now this image makes it more understandable.

Think listing for collar clashes began around 2009 are so? Still a great showing of the die John.

It's a lot like what I pictured in my head, but I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've actually seem this on a die. It's more pronounced than I had envisioned

Agree. And don't forget that some of it was ground off when the die was defaced.

Simply amazing. If I had to bet a grand before this thread that for upper echelon Numismatists seeing a die with a collar clash was almost commonplace I would've taken that bet in a heartbeat. US Mint, Foreign, Dan Carr, Sunshine and other private mint dies etc etc.. I'm somewhat in disbelief. This is kind of awesome. An assumption steamroll. Dig it 😎

that's an awesome find for whoever bought it. i've been trying o buy damaged dies for educational purposes. i have an obverse lincoln, a dime collar, and a reverse lincoln, plus some token dies. one has what we would consider a retained cud, another has repunched letters. i discovered an unknown doubled die on one of ken potter's silver round/medal dies(he included me 'cherrpicking" it in one of his articles).still want a cud die, a doubled die, clashed die, and now a collar clashed die.
