Collar Break By Stan McDonald - author and numismatist

Collar breaks come in many forms. One of the most common breaks results in the planchet shifting and the result is a strike with a wider rim on one side of the coin. This type of collar error is in circulation. Second photo

Sometimes this error is confused for an off-center strike. The difference is that the broken collar strike creates a coin strike with the standard size. A missing collar creates various degrees of off-center coins.

Other collar breaks create irregular circumferences around the coins which are not commonly found in circulation. The coins are also larger than the standard size. First photo

I like these errors and all errors. Could collect endless examples. I never started collecting errors, which may be good. I would probably go overboard and collect way to many.
