The pockmarks. Their distribution and general appearance, is all I can say by way of explanation. Looks like the coin took some hits, is all.
Strikethrough errors would look different.
Don't quote me on that. I'm not an error specialist.
I feel the same. It may be fun to search but the chances of finding something is very slim.
I assume that you are referencing the comment I made. I'd know for sure if you clicked on "Reply" first.
How does a "debris strikethrough" occur? Grease and debris build up in the devices. The devices are an "element" of the design. Ergo! A "dropped element" is a strikethrough of grease and debris. ~ Chris
You're correct about some foreign objects that do not fall from the face of the die, but you're making it too complicated. Debris that mixes with the grease is composed of fine particles of dust and dirt. Larger items such as metal filings, wire and pieces of fabric generally do not mix well with the grease.
Too often people tend to shorten their descriptions (especially people using cellphones). A grease-filled die becomes a greased die; a strikethrough of grease and debris becomes a grease strikethrough or a debris strikethrough. As a result, it very easy for people trying to learn to become confused into thinking they are different things when they are not. ~ Chris
You never quote anyone. Who are you replying to? ~ Chris
