Is this the result of a grease-filled die?

    Barber made some pretty androgynous looking Liberty's.
    Something is missing, but not too much. Wait for an expert.

    IMO, no, not a filled die.
    The coin looks circulated (XF?) and then cleaned.

    Agreed with it's been cleaned. Not a greaser either.

    Odd place to have been over polished to loose the details, so if it isn't a grease fill, then what is it? Hope someone will let us know.

    The only reason I feel it's not grease filled is there are no signs in the design nearby that a the slightest bit weak. Any grease would have to have been confined and I find that very unlikely.

    Something looks off. The wear pattern or something. The IN and the WE of IGWT look off...

    Out of curiosity, I checked out the guy's store. He has a couple of others with the same anomaly. I guess it's not as uncommon as I thought? 20200917_093426.png 20200917_093446.png 20200917_093559.png 20200917_093641.png
