1987 1/10 oz S Gold Panda with S Mint Mark Die Break
« on: April 02, 2013, 10:50:50 PM »
Hi All -

I have a 1987 1/10 oz S gold panda which is not sealed but in excellent condition. It has some sort of a die error on the S mint mark. The S mint mark is only half struck. I compared it to 3 or 4 other 1987 1/10 S pandas, and they all had full S mint Marks. I am attaching some pics of the coin as well as another normal 1987 1/10 S for comparison.

I wanted to check with others and see if they had any similar 87 1/10 S pandas.

Thank you

An interesting find.  I look through 105 NGC entries of the 1987S G10Y and I can only find eight that looked like yours.  NGC pictures are not the best, but the right half of the diamond are definitely missing and the letter "S" seem truncated.  NGC 3356526-168 to 3356526-175.  They are likely all from one sheet of 1/10oz 1987S panda.

Thank you SANDAC - this is great info  :001_smile:  Your research is extremely impressive  :001_smile:  This may be a coin from the same sheet, they all look very similar.
