Understanding that you're relatively new to this, and that we have not really interacted, I'll let slide that you misunderstood my recommendation for full photos (and overlooking my use of the word please) as some sort of order or strange desire to tell people what to do. Thank you for sharing the link, the context of the entire coin shot helps us all see the whole coin, or in this instance, all the coins.
It's very hard to understand what is happening on a coin by a single zoomed in photo. Let me explain to you the remaining questions with the photos you shared here.
How many different coins do these photos represent?
Why are they all angled different directions?
Why does photo four look like the "progression" is actually flat?
If you have 5 coins in your whole photos shots, why are there 8 shots here?
Instead of telling you that your photos are useless without more context, I simply asked you to provide photos of the whole coin. Thanks for assuming the worst intentions of me instead. It's certainly conducive to learning and discussion on the subject (sarcasm intended). Edit: this type of response is exactly why I have migrated away from US coins and focused on German States coinage.
It's not a die dent. It's a sub-surface crack on the die that is the beginning of a die break. As the die break begins to form below the surface of the die, it expands upward very slightly and makes a small impression on the surface of the coin.
I've found many of these when I was searching bags of SQ's.
I like to call these pre die crack depressions. They are also prominent on the quarter Homestead issue. But your answer is just as good.
I found dozens of these in 1,000-coin SQ bags, the most common of which were the 2005 CA SQ.
You can call it whatever you like, but I'll guarantee one thing. In a few weeks, some people with bad memories will be using half of your description and half of mine because they can't remember either one.
LOL! You are right!
I realize. It was just that instead of hyjacking the other thread about progression, I quickly wanted to just show my examples. I really wasnt looking for any real "help" with the coins necessarily because I posted them once way backa awhile ago. I didnt want to be rude and post 3-4 pictures on his thread and muddy it all up.
Pretty much, unless you find others that validate the die break progression.
