Definitely die cracks, and post mint damage, too.
There is a definite die crack ED thru ST of states, and another small one above NI.
I see lots of staining and die cracks. To me it appears to be a clash. How does a stain go beneath the columns? It also appears to be a clash under the E. I find it difficult to believe the staining can be exactly the same under two different coins. IMHO. Thanks: Lou
It looks to me like the back of the neck and top of the vest
Yes, they are two different coins. I think you can tell by the difference in the shading around the "T" in cents and how the last two bays in the memorial are a little darker in one of them. If people have doubts, I can get them out of the 2x2's and photograph them together. They must have been struck very close to each other. (I should have done that) Lou
The stain could have been on the planchet or even the metal strip that planchets are cut from. It’s not necessarily a stain to that particular coin. In most cases it is but you have two nearly identical stains on two different coins. I can’t always do it but think out side of the box.
Me too. In looking and thinking of the minting process, I just can't see how two coins would have EXACTLY the same marks, stains, cracks. It would be super rare, in my opinion.
Anyone else? @Fred Weinberg, @JCro57, @paddyman98, @Paddy54, anyone?
Even if you're right about the exact same stains being on two different coin what are the odds they would end up in the same position in the striking chamber? I think you're a bit too far out the box. lol
I agree it would be super rare. However, what if, what I believe, is a clash was strong where the memorial was struck and towards united but very weak towards one cent. So you would get a clash that - if the staining happened at the same time - would be nearly identical. I'm going to find the first one, I stashed it away with a bunch of other 2x2s. Bty the Obverse is nearly identical on each coin. Here's the pics. Lou
O.K, thanks: Lou
In or out of the water? Lol
