'split-line doubling' from striking
pressure, and there being no collar to 'hold'
the coin, so the copper plating splits apart/off the
surface of the coin.
Kinda seeing top of head too
Whats going on around EPU. Wish i had an idea what I'm seeing. Bail me out
@JCro57 Just where do you find all of these neat errors that you've been posting lately?
The die initially hits the planchet and creates the "doubling" of the bust...then the rest of the pressure of the strike completes itself on the un-collared coin, creating the central design.
Makes sense logistically, imo, but this seems to cover what Fred said too...Spark
I know about split plating. I am talking about what looks like raised metal from other strikes.
I should get a better idea in hand
Oops. Sorry, Fred. I replied to you in error
Good luck at some shows.
Good luck at online stuff.
I can find good stuff in my area but they want a small fortune for it.
