The Rust Quarter - an Interesting Struck Through Grease Filled Die Error

The Rust Quarter - an Interesting Struck Through Grease Filled Die Error

This is a close-up of the "Rust Quarter."  Note that the grease on the die had filled the first T in TRUST while the coin was being struck, making it appear that the coin says "In God We Rust."  If you look closely, you can see a very faint outline of the T, as well as a yellowish residue of grease on the surface of the coin.

Return to the description of how this happened.
