    The main reason I caught this one is because the most prominent clash area looked like dmg from a distance.(in the field behind the L I B In liberty.)
    You can see the A showing thru pretty good between I and B. There are several more light signs of the clash that my phone just cant capture unfortunately. Great looking tone as well.....

    I don't really see any clashing in these pix (must be really subtle if it's there?), but it does seem to have nice toning.

    Look at the A from the reverse sitting right up next to the B 20190617_160739.jpg

    Dunno. I see what you're talking about but that could be a case of pareidolia.

    I'm not seeing a clash. I think more than just the one letter would be showing.

    your seeing what you want to, a clash will be stronger towards the center of the coin because of the shape of the die and weaker towards the edge, so if you see an "A" on the edge then there should be signs of a clash in the fields around the profile..

    That's an A-type example of
    numismatic pareidolia.

    There is no die clash where you
    are pointing too.......sorry.......

    The top of the lettering is towards the rim, not the bottom. A clash of an upside-down A would be impossible, as there is no upside-down A.

    Untitled 2.png I see what you are talking about but... I also see a number "2". If you need a 1000x microscope to see it then it's probable pareidolia.

    i need to look into more playdoh
    sigh...look at the overlay...u flip the coin...find an example you will see.

    I'm outnumbered quite a bit here lol ...again,my pics arent the best,and I cant rly pick up the fine detail but...there are some Mark's in the field and the long round mark on his shoulder that shows in the overlay as well,but I digress. I'm stubborn,tbh I just need to send this to Ken for the big show and get back to pennies. Thanks for the input everyone.

    You're not getting what I'm saying here.

    The top of the lettering is oriented towards the rim on both faces. This is a fact.

    Ok, so no matter where an edge lettering clash occurs on the coin, even if the dies are 180 degree rotated, the top of the lettering is always going to be oriented towards the rim.

    Flipped or not is irrelevant. Flipping the coin does not remove the letter from the coin and spin it around. The whole face moves together rim and all and the top of the letter is always going to be oriented towards the rim. Keep reading this until you understand it.

    Yeah, and when Ken tells you that you are wrong, are you going to come back here and admit your mistake?

    Sorry, I'm well aware of where you're pointing to, I'm telling you it's not a clash. Sorry.
