    My eye sees a planchet with plating issues and die deterioration doubling on the obverse. And the reverse has a different plating problem: split-plating doubling in several areas.

    Repeating what I have said before…just because a coin looks new doesn’t mean it is a good coin to keep…imo…Spark

    Good-looking coin, Pam. That plating separates on these planchets when they're struck, it doesn't stick very well, and that's what you're seeing. The dates and mint marks show it a lot on these. Keep this as an example, as you'll come across it, as there are quite a lot out there. These planchets are just cheap plate-jobs that can't hold their shape for the violent strikes without coming apart at the seams, or so to speak.

    Nice looking but it’s from a worn die and plated and this is a prime example of what it looks like. Notice the lines running from 11 to 5 o’clock? That’s another clue.
