Plain edge Washington dollar is an error
The new Presidential dollar coins have an unusual edge. After the obverse (front) and reverse (back) of the coins are stamped on US mint Schular coinage presses, the edge lettering is applied to the coin by running it through another Schular machine, called an edge lettering machine.
Evidently, some of the presidential dollars escaped this second step and the edge lettering wasn’t applied to them in the minting process. Often, mistakes and error coins are detected by the US mint quality control inspection team and then destroyed, never making it into circulation. However, the mint somehow missed catching these error coins.
Plain edge Prez dollar error coins have been reported from P and D mint rolls and bags. (Thus far) most have been reportedly found in areas that normally receive P mint coins. Once one of these errorcoins is removed from the roll or bag it came in, there is no way to tell if the dollar was originally intended to be a P or D mint coin. Why? Because the mint marks are normally found on the edge along with the other lettering that is missing.
Be sure to search your coins for this error.
Many people who have seen the Presidential dollars, haven’t noticed that the edges of the coins have lettering. It’s possible that some of the plain edge error coins are in the hands of these inattentive collectors. It pays to be knowledgeable and attentive, so checkout your Presidential dollars and maybe you will find a “plain edge” Washington dollar coin with the missing edge lettering.
Plain edge presidential dollar error coins are also called by some collectors: rimless errors, smooth edge $'s, missing edge lettering dollars, and God-less dollars.
