    I'm talking denomonition and or composition, so no Trimes allowed(J/K). 5c, 3c, doesn't matter. Show us your best & worst examples. Toned, blast white, dug from a pit in the back yard! I'll start!

    Pics are taken on my new Celestron dig microscope @ a higher resolution, so they should blow up nicely!:yes: It's a great scope(Better than the V-micro one), but the lights don't turn off so all pics are shot at a slight angle.
    Sorry if a duplicate thread, I didn't any others when searching.

    My favorite one, 1867 with RPD & multiple die cracks & some good honest wear. I almost lost her for a few days, but the other party was kind enough to let me trade some 40% to get her back.

    Can't wait to throw a couple up on here after work. Nice original Jeffersons and an honest worn shield!

    BTW Zach, that 1950-D should be the poster child for why strike designations do not equate to a well struck coin. Here is the poster child for a well struck coin that has no steps.

    Geez, Lehigh. That is a lot to absorb. I'll go one at a time on mine, LOL. Bummer about the steps. The 50-D lacks a good clean sharp strike, but has superb "Ghosting" in hand
    She has a few hits, but good steps.

    What is "ghosting"?

    You may know it as a heavy die transfer. It's when the luster resembles the the other face of the coin.

    Very nice luster so it looks great up close.

    This centime has a little bit of "ghosting" on the reverse.

    OK, where is the ghosting on the OP's coin? It looks normal to me and the excessive die wear must be hiding it.

    I can *sort of* see it. I wouldn't classify it as ghosting based on the pictures, though.

    Is it similar to the "halo effect" found on many Jefferson Nickels?
