Pretty much ever graded PRXX has them. Quite frustrating to dig through them all and when I find one, typically pricey...
When the planchet is struck, metal will be pushed into the design, letters, and towards the rim. This metal flow will slowly wear the die, until it gets to the point where the erosion lines are visible. If you look closely, you’ll see that they are raised, meaning they were recessed in the die surface.
Interesting! Thanks Hoopster, I'll keep digging for the needle in the haystack! BTW, auto spell changed your name to Hipster, LOL!
Auto spell......spell check......they're all the same! It's like driving on the interstate during rush hour with your eyes closed. ~ Chris
Try using an Amazon Fire tablet. Not only does the spell check s...…. er, leave something to be desired. It has a habit of replacing common words like of, or, in, on, etc. with similar words. IN is replaced with ON, or OF with IF even if you used the correct word. You'll see many of my posts are edited because I have to change it back to the original so the grammar makes sense. I've even had a member send me a private IM politely suggesting that my posts would have more credibility if I used better grammar!
Don't buy an Amazon Fire tablet
I use a format that almost never makes a mistake unless I am in a hurry. It's called proofreading. ~ Chris
I just tagged this one for a best answer..... Nothing to add to this spot on answer.
I have another theory. Looking at this piece, I think that it has been dipped more than once. After a while you take off enough of the Proof surface to dull it, which makes marks like this more obvious.
Here are a couple of higher grade Proof dimes that show the same sort of marks.
Here is a 1936 that is graded PR-66, CAC.
And here is a 1942 that also a PR-66.
Separate names with a comma.
