It is not embedded but raised metal from the Planchet that flowed into the break on the Die that struck it!
Awesome, I will check it out!!! Thanks. The snow is melting here, soon I will be finding lost treasures metal detecting ; )
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.
I understand the die break, it's the 5th bay slowing me down, I'll review your messages, something is in there lol
I have no idea.
Thanks, I'd like the see Penny's made, I work in manufacturing, I understand how when one thing malfunctions it affects the other processes
that has to be what's going on, thanks paddyman
@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.
