    Is this an error or post mint damage? What is it and why is it an error or PMD? Polish_20210121_202221013~2.jpg Polish_20210121_202221013~3.jpg

    what exactly is your question referring to?

    Looks like a clash, along with a weak strike, add in the die abrasion.
    And you have a late die state coin.

    To the 1965 LMC, specifically on the reverse but there is something going on in the obverse fields as well.

    LDS for sure. What do they do to extend the life of a die?

    PnG is on it. This is a MS coin with no wear.

    One last clue for the newbies as I am sure the more advanced folks know what is going on in the fields. It is not PMD and it is related to the die abrasions previously mentioned.

    @Razz I can still see some of the clash and a little bit of the clash on the obv. But I am a little confused about what you are asking. I see only Heavy Die polishing lines.
    Looking at your example and the way the lapel of lincolns jacket going into the details of the memorial. I think your is an abraded example of this clash. Atypical die clash.

    Ok, as a newbie I have a question. :confused:

    Is this part raised? And if so, wouldn't that be an IDB?

    Is it too time-consuming to type that out so we can all understand what you're asking or is this like some kind of quiz question?

    :) I meant an inner die break. Did I use that acronym incorrectly? It just seems that if it's raised, then the die was missing material there.

    Yeah, it's broken there. When in doubt, take the time to spell out, I always say. It don't hurt communication none. :)

    Someone better come up with something other than LDS, The Mormon Church is not going to like the use of their motto... I think, maybe, oh I don't know, forget it.
