    Found this Rossie dime this morning. Die chips on the chin and doubling of one of the acorn branches. Thanks: Lou Reverse.jpg

    There are no known DDR on Wexler or Variety Vista for that date and MM. Keep looking that is where the fun is.

    The doubling looks like it’s from a worn die but the obverse die chips are a nice find.

    If that's a die chip on his chin, it is the strangest shape I've seen.

    What else could it be?

    Have you tried an acetone soak and then see if it lifts with a soft tool? Could be a splotch of something on the coin.

    Looks like a hit. The adjacent leaf looks damaged.

    After a 2 hour soak in acetone. Looks like a die break on the nose as well.

    I believe I see the leaf you're talking about (to the right), however I don't see how that could affect the stem of the acorn. Looks strong to me but I guess it could be a deteriorated die of MD. Thanks: Lou

    Now it does appear as a lamination, going up to the edge of his lip. Much better photo of it now.

    Thank You. If I understand what you're saying. What appears to be the top of the "die chip" extending in a semi-circle to the lip a small piece has come off?

    Not a die chip, a lamination. Totally different animals. Instead of the actual die cracking, and leaving a raised area, a lamination is the actual metal of the defective planchet separating.
