Ear wax maybe?
Looks interesting though.
Well, Meow is not sure what it is exactly. But it is a gouge, not a lump. It just could be PMD, but it is so clean of a gouge. And it is surrounded by elements of a greased die. But Meow is certain there is that doubled die element in it. As the devices behind the ear is raised. Certainly a bit difficult to say for sure what is going on with it. Meow will of course keep it in the Cat hoard. Would anyone else have an opinion to what we are seeing here? Or would you agree with Meow's assessment of it? It is one of the more interesting items Meow has found CRH.
Meow will hope to come across sister to this one, but it is doubtful. As it is quite difficult to find many P mint coins in rolls where Meow lives. 90%+ of coins are D mints in local prey.
Oh, and Meow remembers the most notable "error" Meow found CRH. It was a P mint Wyoming State quarter out of a complete BU roll Meow bought on fleabay. Meow unrolled it hoping for minor double die errors on the horsy, but found a VERY scratched up obverse on one. Meow thought what the heck is this doing in here? This was supposed to be a original roll. Meow would have bet a lot on this being nothing but a PMD quarter, and thought nothing good of it. But to Meow's surprise, There where two more totally identical scratched of quarters in the roll. So it blew this Cats mind that those quarters where made with all those scrtaches. Meow would not have NEVER be believed if not for it being triplets.
Is this anomaly incused?
Yes it is. Meow does not see and displaced metal there, and it is grease die like in places so thinks it is not PMD.
I got it wrong in my first reply to you . I thought this was a raised area , I didn't know it was incused . You are right about it being struck thru grease. Sometimes this will stick on a die and make a lot of similar coins before it wears or falls off the die.
Oh, Meow did not think of it being a possible die clash. Maybe that is what it is.
