1999 Can 25C September ex ICCS 62 'XT 230'
Evidence of 1st strike inside body of figure on right. ex ICCS 62 'XT 230'. There were a few "September" Millennium design Canadian Quarters struck with a very unusual "Counter Clashed" die on the reverse. See specifically the extreme right child's "triangle" with the Counter Clash marks. The Counter-Clash die marks are in other surrounding areas but much lighter. This is the "Through a Child's Eye" September design. A Type II counter-clash occurs when a die strikes a piece of hard metal. It could be a die fragment, a collar fragment, a stray nut, etc. The initial strike leaves a die-struck design on the metal fragment. The fragment then shifts position within the striking chamber and is struck again. The second strike transfers the design back to the die face (typically just the field portion). The die face now carries an incuse, mirror image version of the design. Every planchet struck after this will have raised normally-oriented design elements in an unexpected location.
