I paid like 50 euros for it so the price was low enough in spite of the weak rims.
But seeing a rim with full cut detail denticals @ 9 k and at 3 k they barely seened.
I see that on h-10's all the time. I like to vision the hammer on a down ward strike chatters enough to cause a beveled sort of strike going from strong to weak. If that makes sense? You see this on shield nickels also but that's adding hard nickel to the equation which would cause more bounce......look at a shield nickel that appears to have an RPD, Look again was it a repunch or a bounce ? Both giving a double date look.
Yes this shows wear, and lacks luster...but details and even wear makes it a keeper to me.
I thought the planchets had to have the correct weight, at least within a specific range?
They do, but sometimes underweight planchets get through. Even with the modern monitoring technology we have today, they sometimes still do.
