Hello Mlke I'm sorry about getting your name wrong and It's good to know you are still ok. I have been about out of it for a long time and a lot of surgerys about wiped me out. I tend to disagree with one on this one and I know how hard it is to examine a coin with only a image of it. If you would message me I could better explain it to you. I may even send it to you so you can see it in hand.I know how much it looks like the old hammer job but it has so many things that says it may not be a hammer job or vise job. If you will message me I will tell you who looked at it for me a few years back. Also while you are on here please take a look at the struck thru die cap for me if you can . Troy W
That is how it is supposed to be from a die clash or struck thru die droppings . Thanks for your reply , this is how we learn
If you disagree with Mike Diamond you will never agree with anyone else.. Wow dude!
If @bdunnse was reading this thread he would of seriously cursed you out by now!
Anyone remember him?
Please answer a few questions.
Lets look at Lincolns beard. This is a low spot in the die, convex. How is it possible for the reverse die to reach down into that convex area of the obverse die and create a clash? Just for fun, let's say it could. Why are there no signs of a clash below the beard, in the field? Do you have an answer for this?
Not true. A dropped letter can surely flip to the correct orientation.
After reading the beginning of a few of your previous threads. I don't believe that ICG ever authenticated this coin. And the cert # would tell us that you altered the slab. I am calling your bluff. In the years that I have been on this forum, I have never suspected, seen, or known ICG to get it so wrong. And I don't believe they did.
Or, you can call my bluff, with a photo of the entire slab, obverse and reverse. We shoot it pretty straight around here. Like, what has been said before if one of us gets it wrong, there are many that will quickly respond to correct.
Photos are the proof.
Thanks Idhair for a great question . This and a few other things is what made me think it may be from something else. I even mentioned it may be from struck thru die droppings which is what it really looks to be after many look overs by me. I really don't like going against expert examiners decisions but anyone can get it wrong in some rare instances . I have seen it happen before a few times .If folks on here would learn how to more civil and caring we could work better together to maybe solve some really hard to figure out coin problems. When I bought this coin I bought it thinking it was a vise job and ICG had got it wrong . After I started studying if for a while I could see it was about impossible to rule out as a mint done coin. It was struck while still in the collar as evidenced by a normal diameter rim and not squashed out any at all.
The other side has the cert #.
Edit slow computer today.
The examiner was wrong and it does NOT align up perfectly.
When a clash occurs there is no Blank Planchet in the chamber so when the Obverse Die strikes the Reverse die leaving an impression on the die from each other. If this was true with your cent the memorial building would of been tilted downward and not upwards like yours shows on the right side of the Cent.. That is not a clashed die error.
I see they have a LIKE button , Where the heck is the UNLIKE button ?
