Look at an overlay to find matching marks on the coin that would indicate a clash.
On this coin,it looks like most of the clash marks on the obverse were polished away,there aren't many signs left of it
@Beardigger- Some are obvious and some are not so obvious. You have to train your eyes to know what to look for. You don't have to see a clash on the obv. to have a clash on the rev.
@FoundinTN. You've been doing some nice hunting with good results lately.
This is absolutely 100% a die clash. The clash will not fall in the exact same spot everytime,there are exact overlays you can find for each year. In this clash,if you look at the thumbnails,the back of his neckline extends from the top of column 2 and rounds off at the bottom of column 3, the recession you see circled at Column 7 is the rounding from his neck to his chin. It is right.
The neck and chin line should be in column 8 and 9.
It's not an exact science, the image location can vary.
Yes it can vary in a rotational direction unless the coin is an off-center strike it would no move the width of one column. JMO
