Mint or environmental punched out "R" in TRUST?

    Would this be die damage? Considering the remnants of the letter R not being smashed, I am leaning away from post mint damage, but still have so much to learn. 20191016_110106.jpg 20191016_110137.jpg 20191016_095427.jpg

    Post-Minting Damage, as well as the circular
    wheel marks from a counting machine.

    Hmmm...more to learn than I thought! I did recognized the wheel marks, though! Thanks to all!

    Intentional post-striking counterpunch. Notice the press-thru below AM.

    Nice eye Mr Wright!

    I was thinking wrongly that it got "snagged" on something and tore off. Reminds me of 7th grade when a kid decided to slide across the shower floor after football and neglected to take into account the little metal drain cover in which he slid over. Kind of the same...kid left with "less material" then he came in with. Pretty sure he has no children 30 years later.
