    The first bay on left obviously has a huge chip, my question is about the 5th bay from the left, there is a piece of something molded, embedded into the pillar, so, is it possible the 1st and 5th bay are connected? something happened in the process are the 2 bays connected in the mishap? I cannot get a good picture of the embedded peice, it is bright gold in color 20200224_084839.jpg 20200224_085040.jpg 20200224_085127.jpg 20200224_084028.jpg 20200224_084839.jpg 20200224_085040.jpg 20200224_085127.jpg 20200224_084028.jpg

    That my friend is what we call a Hornet's Nest Die Break.. I own a few and some other members have found them also.

    It is not embedded but raised metal from the Planchet that flowed into the break on the Die that struck it!

    So paddyman, there was actually metal in the planchet?

    It's a normal blank planchet. When the Die that strikes it becomes overused we call it a worn die. That area broke away on the die so when it struck the blank planchet the metal flowed into the break. No added metal at anytime! Simple.

    Looks like a square flap of the copper plating raised up and turned over. Looks like a tiny window.

    That's a nice hornets nest Die break. The other is nice but too small for me to tell. Definitely something going on.

    @Marie909 I can't tell from these photos, but perhaps what you might be seeing in the bays is a die clash. If that is the case then any number of bays may be affected but usually bays 3-9. That's because that is where most of the obverse design would transfer to the reverse during a clash event. An overlay could tell you more about what you may be seeing. Perhaps someone here could post one for you for comparison. Nice die chip by the way.
