    In another thread I posted I got a roll of Massachusetts in a plastic roll that at one time was abundant, My brain apparently skipped something and I was informed I had a roll of New Hampshire quarters. That being said I want to post one of the said quarters and see what others think about it. Myself I am thinking it's just normal grease filled die. See how the issue effects the reverse from the words New Hampshire it's like it loops through the words. It is probably something simple but I wanted to share. hamp1.jpg hamp3.jpg hamp4.jpg hamp5.jpg

    Fell in 2003.

    I remember seeing it on a camping trip through the White Mountains in the summer of 94-95. I also remember about his face falling off in the news.

    Some really interesting info on the wiki page:
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_Man_of_the_Mountain

    Freezing and thawing opened fissures in the Old Man's "forehead". By the 1920s, the crack was wide enough to be mended with chains, and in 1957 the state legislature passed a $25,000 appropriation for a more elaborate weatherproofing, using 20 tons of fast-drying cement, plastic covering and steel rods and turnbuckles, plus a concrete gutter to divert runoff from above. A team from the state highway and park divisions maintained the patchwork each summer.[5]

    Nevertheless, the formation collapsed to the ground between midnight and 2 a.m., May 3, 2003.[2]Dismay over the collapse was so great that people visited to pay tribute, with some leaving flowers.[6][7]

    I figured it was something simple. My first thought was that grease clogged the die in that area but die deterioration makes sense as well.
