Absolutely extremely rare!!! Beautiful" Brockage" Error! This “Severe" modern mint error is graded by PCGS with the following designation: Brockage From Struck Fragment Mint Error MS-69. It started out as a blank planchet and was then struck with a 2nd pressed coin to produce a large indention with evidence of the reeded edge and stars from the obverse of a fully struck gold eagle. A brockage error only occurs when there are two coins involved. One of the coins involved will be a struck coin that will end up stuck between the dies and will be grouped with a blank planchet which was fed into the collar. The struck coin will then be impressed into the side of the blank planchet and the result will be a second coin which has images of the first coin pressed into the design. The sunken image is known at the brockage.
