    In this thread I want to talk about Finned Rim or Finning caused by a Abnormally Strong Strike on a Blank Planchet.
    Here is a simple definition from the error-ref.com website
    Quote - "Definition: A fin is a thin flange that extends vertically from the rim/edge junction of a coin struck within the collar. It is caused by excessive striking pressure or a localized increase in striking pressure caused by slight die tilt. The extra pressure causes coin metal to squeeze into the narrow gap between die neck and collar. Fins can develop on either face or both faces simultaneously. A fin may encircle a coin or may be restricted to one pole. The latter is the kind typically produced by die tilt" closed quote
    I want to share this webpage with you - http://www.error-ref.com/?s=Finned rim
    Here are some examples of some Finned Rims from my collection
