1971 Punt Gun NRA error Gallery
INCORRECT - NOT an ERROR wrong reverse image supplied. Will fix soon.
After the Annie Oakley error find, I went and found a "Punt Gun" NRA medal in completed items that was no longer available that had a reverse from a NRA Kentucky Long Rifle.
I figured it was sold but it magically showed up tonight for sale again and now it's mine.
This little study might get expensive. LOL
Now I have to find a Kentucky Long Rifle correct version and a Annie Oakley correct version and it would make a neat subset.
This takes a little thinking, but I wonder how many reverse dies were mistakenly aligned with incorrect obverse dies and how many got struck and released.
It will be interesting to see the number stamped on the edge of this. It may not mean anything, but if it is close to the #01684 on my error Oakley, it may have some meaning.
Now if I find a Kentucky Long Rifle with a wrong reverse, I may continue on to chase this run to the next one if it exists.
If I find an Annie Oakley reverse with a wrong obverse, I may have to search in that direction too.
So I could consider this a "run" as a subset which I would have the tough ones already out of the way.
Annie Oakley ( correct ) - don't have yet
Annie Oakley ( error Punt Gun reverse ) - have
Punt Gun ( correct ) - don't have yet
Punt Gun ( error Kentucky Long Rifle reverse ) - have
Kentucky Long Rifle ( correct ) - don't have yet
This is a strange quest to undertake. I don't think I can go wrong buying them as cheap as I can at "normal" medal prices.
Afterall, there certainly can't be a lot of these errors. All those I have ever seen before this observation from the 30 medal set were correct until just recently.
