    Hello ladies and gentlemen hope everybody enjoyed your Thanksgiving and everybody was safe. Now we got to look forward to Christmas. Which I have relatives over for the holidays. Only problem is they came on New Year's and stay till Christmas LOL. On the reverse, the last e in Delaware, have lines all around it and it spreads towards the North if it's not environmental I can't remember the name of this mistake. Forgive me as I have short-term memory. Those bouncing Betty's in Vietnam didn't do me no justice thank you IMG_20221202_125405063.jpg IMG_20221202_125934518.jpg

    That is Die Deterioration. As the dies get used it isn't just the devices that take on die wear. When a planchet is struck the metal is moved from the center of the coin outward, upon repeated strikes this will start leaving radial lines in the flat surfaces of the dies.
