    Not an expert, but this area is often weak, I believe just because it takes a lot of metal to fill the design on the obverse opposite the PLURIBUS.

    I just call it a strike issue. I'm not an expert and don't remember the proper term.

    I agree. The flow lines around the periphery with the stars drawn to the rim give it a look that's unique and offsets the rim mushiness.

    Thanks for playing all! A fun coin, I thought.

    Wow! I really like your coins. I live about 20 miles outside a town of about 20K. The only coin display I have seen since I have been here for about 25 years, were in a jewelry store where i bought my wife a necklace. The coins that he displayed were USM sets. He had them behind a display cabinet, so I couldn't figure out what they were. There is a city about 20 miles further and they have a couple of coin stores. That's the first place I have gone to for some coins I bought. Everything there was recent.
    You really lucked up. Thanks.
