CANADIAN ERROR COINS
This Dollar was Struck Through Grease. Planchets may pick up grease from various sources in the mint prior to being struck.
This is a Reverse Cap Die that is 1/4 of an inch high. In Canada the Reverse is always the top
die (Tales) and the bottom die (Heads) is the Obverse.
It has a full Double Strike Reverse Brockage and has also been struck through
grease (image below). The image to the lower left shows the incused Double Strike at 40x magnification.
