    I pulled this beautiful golden tone nickel out of a bank roll a few months ago. I just got back around to looking at it and I think that it has (from what I understand) indirect design transfer displayed on both sides of the coin. You can clearly see the impressions in the fields..kinda like a clash I guess.

    After taking some pictures and looking closer...the face of Jefferson almost looks doubled near his eye and nose...probally just some kind of marking or ware. I cant say for sure,it is interesting tho.

    Yes to indirect die transfer. No to doubled die or clash.
    Just happens when the dies are used a lot.

    That would be a great CRH find. Did you get it that way?

    Gold patina may suggest it came out of an album (liberated).

    How can a coin that was found in circulation and does not represent the design properly because of the "ghost" impression get an MS grade of any kind?
  11. Oldhoopster

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    If there is no evidence of wear, a coin found in circulation would grade MS.

    Okay, how does an indirect die transfer happen? And how often do they happen?

    This is a lesser known form of die deterioration which transfers design outlines from one die to the other. Since there are many types of design transfer (clashed dies, brockages, etc.), it is preferable to call this type of design transfer “Progressive Indirect Design Transfer” or “PIDT”. Other synonyms you’re likely to encounter are “heavy design transfer”, “internal metal displacement phenomenon (IMDP), and “ghosting”.the force of the strike is transferred into and through the planchet and onto the opposing die (reverse or anvil die). Since the dies are slightly convex, the strongest force felt on the planchet is in the center of that planchet.

    I need glasses too. But, I like the varieties, so I have big magnifying glasses and a microscope.

    Geez, I have probably 20 different magnifiers scattered around. One microscope. Still can't see.

    Meow once met a retired Professor that was technically blind, but he like to read. He had a set up at home where the letters on the page where magnified to fill an entire monitors screen, one letter at a time.

    That's pretty remarkable for a CRH find.
