I apologize. It's just been eating at me all day.
The bottom three are of the second coin, with very dramatic effects.
What the heck is going on with it/them?
I cannot tell for sure but it's difficult to tell.
I have no idea what this might be.
If you want to here from Mike, you need to go to coneca forums, for that ... Heres the link http://board.conecaonline.org/index.php
Slightly sunken rings are also sometimes a symptom of a slightly weak strike. But the internal margin would be soft, and ring development would be equal on both faces.
Thanks for your input. I have a question though:
How does such a strongly defined crack form on the inner edge like that? It's really intriguing to me that it is a strike through rather than deteriorated dies. The contrast between the fields within the ring, with heavy die polish marks (or striations?), and the fields within the ring itself is striking.
The ringed area is indeed recessed as you see it. While the design is blurred in some areas, in others like the date the details are visible despite the heavily recessed ring in the field area.
If I'm interpreting your assessment correctly, grease was pretty much in a complete ring around both dies, mostly limited to the fields. The design details on the dies were effected by grease filling some more than others, unevenly.
As if it was the first coin struck after a fresh lube job? Am I even close?
