I finally took the time to find that the Lathe Lines is an accepted variety that I had not heard of before. Thaks for the information.
Not on the planchet, they were on the die blank before it was hubbed. The got in a hurry when they turned the face of the die blank and instead of a flat smooth surface to the cone on the die face it left a distinct spiral groove. When the die was hubbed the fields being the highest portion of the die face, received the least pressure during the hubbing and the lather ridges were not wiped out. Nor withthe remove during subsequent lapping of the die face so they showed up on the struck coins.
Thanks Conder. After Furryfrog said lathe lines it made sense. I looked up lathe lines and found the variety. I had not seen this one before. I find it very interesting. Thanks to both of you for the information.
This next one is a closeup of a working hub and struck die.
real and then go and investigate what the members have told them. You have a good eye and attitude. Welcome to Coin Talk.
