Lot Description
1979-P SBA$ Anthony Dollar--Struck on a Quarter Planchet--AU55 NGC. 5.6 gm. It appears that in 1979, even the Mint machinery could not distinguish the difference in diameter between the new mini-dollar and the more familiar quarter. This wrong planchet example has full legends, but the rims are partially absent, which makes the piece appear to be struck a few degrees off center toward 7:30.
