    Is he talking about a die clash?

    Nyatii I like running w/scissors. Makes me feel dangerous

    It appears to be sunken in a semi-circular pattern next to the lettering and raising towards the face and back of head.

    I believe he is talking about the halo around Jefferson's bust, I think!

    I believe he is talking about what appears to be a sunken area in front of Jefferson's face that apparently underlines IN GOD WE TRUST. There is a similar but smaller area behind Jefferson's head. I'm no expert, but from the look of the surface of the field, it looks to me like a very worn die.

    I'm in agreement with a die clash. Where red arrows point to:

    I doubt that it is from a clashed die . If it was the clash marks would show on the reverse side on the of the top of the building. I believe your coin probably was struck with worn out dies from the way it looks.

    I would almost rule out die clash. On these nickels there is always a part of the remaining clash in the pony tail. To hard to polish out. This coin doesn't exhibit any of that. I'm going with incidental marks.

    How do clash marks appear on the pony tail if the pony tail is incuse on the working die?

    The clash marks on the field I understand. I don't understand the marks on the pony tail being clash marks. Please explain on how clash marks on incused areas of the die are possible.

    The sharp edges along the pony tail on the die is what makes the marks when the dies clash together. even on a super minor clash the ponytail will be the most visibiable are above the Monticello building . I have some that have 3 or more pony tail clash marks where the dies were clashed over and over. My favorite one is a counter clash nickel , it looks like a doubled die because the counter clash put a extra obverse and reverse back on the dies. It can be seen on maddieclash.com I would put photos on here but I am scheduled for heart surgery tomorrow.
