Elliptical Clip Mint Error



Earlier this week I had an opportunity to pick up a number of interesting Republic of the Philippines Mint Error coins in Heritage Auctions Weekly On Line World Coin Auction.  The most interesting of the group is a 1964 5 Centavos with an Elliptical Clip Mint Error.  The Elliptical Clip gives the Planchet a distinctive "Football shape". This is the first time that I have seen this type of Mint Error in a Philippine coin. The coin is graded ANACS MS62. I will need to send it to NGC with my next batch of submissions so that I can add it to my Philippine Mint Errors Custom Registry Set. https://coins.www.collectors-society.com/WCM/CoinCustomSetView.aspx?s=27874

That's a really neat error coin, congratulations on winning it. I'm glad to see you are doing well with your collection. I have always enjoyed perusing it on NGC and your displays at coin shows. Gary
