1862 Broadstruck Mint Error Indian Cent NGC XF45

A lovely, choice, original coin that is also very impressive from an error standpoint. Sometimes, broadstruck coins (those struck outside of the retaining collar, and thus not limited in their final diameter) are not so wide, and rarely are they perfectly centered. The collar provides not only a consistent final diameter for coins, it also locates the planchet in the correct spot so the dies strike it perfectly centered. Thus perfectly centered strikes outside of the collar are rare. But here we have a very happy confluence of events...the striking pressure used for this very hard planchet was enough to produce a widely-spread final product, and the strike was perfectly centered.
