Partial Collar Strike per Alan Herbert's Book... Flanged Partial Collar Strike:A coin struck with the obverse die as the hammer die, the collar only partially raised around the coin, showing on the struck coin as a flange of the coin metal which spread out above the top of the collar, parallel to the upper (obverse) face of the coin and extending beyond the normal diameter of the coin.Tilted Partial Collar Strike:A coin struck wih the collar in a tilted position, showing on the struck coin as a flange of unequal thickness that tapers in both directions diagonally across the edge of the coin and may show only on part of the edge.I submitted this Peace Dollar to NGC to be graded as a "MINT ERROR" and NGC claimed "TOO MINOR, NOT RECOGNIZED" What do you think? 1923s_pc_o.jpg1923s_pc_r.jpg

That's not a true partial collar error. It is simply an obverse die that was not perfectly aligned with the reverse die on the same axis. It is a very minor error and fairly common, so NGC did not label it as a Mint Error.
