Missing edge lettering was reported on a 2014-D enhanced uncirculated Native American dollar coin from the Native American Coin and Currency Set.
ANACS made the find Jan. 20.
Paul DeFelice, vice president of marketing and client relations at the third-party grading service in Englewood, Colo., said the error came in as part of a bulk submission for certification.
“It was discovered during a pre-screening of the coins for MS-69 and -70 examples as well as identifying the edge lettering type,” he said. “It graded MS-69.”
DeFelice said ANACS certified about 1,000 of the Native American enhanced uncirculated dollar coins, which were sold only as part of the set, which had a mintage of just 50,000.
“With the low mintage, you have to imagine that the error will be rare,” DeFelice said.
