Worn die strikes sometimes accumulate compacted grease in some of the design elements such as those 2 letters. So when striking the blank planchet they don't form well.
Looks neat but nothing really major.
Welcome to CoinTalk.
Is it possible that the Mint employee who made the die couldn't spell, and after one coin was struck, an error control specialist took the die out of service, the bad speller was demoted to emptying trash cans in the break room and the error control specialist was given the defective die to use as a paperweight at his desk? ~ Chris
Nice description of the process.
I think government employees get promoted when the screw up, not demoted
I won't argue that point, but in this case the astute logic and reasoning of the error collector could very well take precedence. ~ Chris
The government saying is, If you wanna move up, then just screw up. Shortly afterward you will be promoted.
