I can't blame the guy for imbibing--- the conditions had to be miserable.

Sorry about that...
I use an iPad air 2... much older than the iPhone 7... you may have to wait a few seconds before it focuses... pull the phone back wait for it to focus then slowly push your phone towards the coin... btw never use the zoom feature... it doesn't work very well
Dark? How about not even close to being in focus. I can't even tell if it is a coin or a blob of chewed gum.
I'm not trying to be rude, but hopefully you can give us better photos in the future.
Welcome to CT.
..well now Vic..i thought that too on 1st inspection...but the 2nd photo shows the bust to be much lower than the 1st pic....would that still be a brockage?...
..some people are naturals...
A brockage occurs when a coin sticks in the upper die and is used to strike the next coin. There is no reason to expect them to align perfectly. I have a page:
Septimius Severus "Emesa" mint
very good sir! ...that answers that!
Dang, you know and have EVERYTHING!!!
Everyone is right, I think you'll see the "GALL" in the coin before it runs out of metal; I'm not much into "errors", although I know they are very popular with others. I just get a kick out of seeing something like this, that it happened way back when.
Doug Smit- thanks for explaining brockage so well...
It really is interesting to see these kind of things. Thanks again, people...
