    I just bought some 2018 ASEs from Provident and noticed they are mis-shaped where half of the coin seems thicker than the other half? Is this a mint defect? I’ve pulled four of them like this.

    I see what you're seeing, but I don't know what they might be. The best thing I can come up with s that they were slowly squashed by something and so they took that shape but didn't lose the details.

    Here’s some thickness measurements of the worst coin out of the bunch. That deviation in rim thickness is way off the .117 inches it should be. I measured .111 at the minimal thickness and almost.123 inches at the thickest.

    I emailed these to provident and waiting for thier response.
