It's not displaced metal. Ita definitely not damage.. I can see how you would guess that because the pics tho. It's kinda hard to get pics cuz the shadows of the indentions... but its gotta be from like a strong strike or something
@Islander80-83 said it all so reread his post.
I read it. Thanks. I was just replying to that person. Thanks tho.
No, it is not PMD! It is a sub-surface fracture, and if you had the complete die progression, it would end up becoming an interior die break. I found dozens of these when searching Mint bags of CA SQ's, and one on the brim of John Muir's hat actually resulted in an IDB. (I can't show you the images of the sub-surface fracture because I lost those images on my old computer.) ~ Chris
@Islander80-83, @Collecting Nut, and @cpm9ball. I’ve seen what y’all are describing before but never paid much attention to it.
It really does take time to learn so hang in there. Sounds like a bell is going off.
Don't feel bad, these things are a mess!!
Now that’s more like what I’ve seen. I actually have a couple just like this.
I know I still have a lot of the CA SQ's set aside in flips. I'm going to see if I can't find those that show the sub-surface fracture that led up to the IDB on Muir's hat. Maybe I'll get lucky. ~ Chris
Look at those die chips! But thst is just a cloud coming over the top of the mountain.
