The Stack’s Bowers March 2013 Baltimore Auction features 22 outstanding error coins, all certified by NGC. Error coins have a unique ability to excite collectors and non collectors alike, as well as provide insight into the minting process. There are a wide range of error coin types, although the number has been greatly reduced since 2002 when the US Mint changed its production methods.

All of the errors in this collection are extremely rare and highly desirable, but the 1909 Indian Head Cent struck over 1906 Barber Dime is particularly stunning. Graded NGC MS 65, this unusual coin begs the question: How did a 1906 dime get mixed with the unstruck cent planchets in 1909?
