I'm not seeing it i think its just a heavily polished die making that appearance,The fg is quite faint.
Look in between the pillars.
I see it now well I was expecting to see Lincoln on the reverse.
I think those are plating blisters. Not a Clash issue.
I'm interested in learning more about your statement. Can you explain what is meant by "... crude attempt in die work to remove it"? What signs do you see? Thanks in advance.
The attempt to to remove the clash has left marks almost as bad as the clash itself. Poor workmanship. This seems to be a trend from the Philadelphia mint, at least from what I’ve seen. JMHO
Thanks. I see it. So they "over scrubbed" (for lack of a better term) the die to try to remove the clash. Are dies very expensive - is that why they don't throw it away when there's a die clash?
The over polishing, mostly to the left of the Memorial and the heavy tooling marks in the left bays. Spent the most amount of time trying to remove the clashing in bay 3 which is usually minor to begin with, instead of the heavy clashing further east. It looks like the tech may have been having a bad day or in overly in a rush.
I see it now. Learned something. Thank you.
