Counterclash Type 2

1999 Canadian Quarter:

CONECA lists two type of Counterclashes (ErrorScope Vol 18, No 1, 2009, M. Diamond) Type 1 and Type 2.

Here illustrated is a Type 2 Counterclash on a Canadian quarter. Somewhat amusingly, something struck the die near the left side on the lower part of the child's face, had part of the design sunk in, then shifted and counterclashed leaving the an impression of the face inside the triangular body of the right most child.
