Oddities - Die Damage or Modified

| Stan McDonald - author

Usually, if someone damages the surface of a coin, it is obviously scratched. The damage on the surface of this coin could have been artificial, and it is hard to confirm. The groves on the coin are somewhat mysterious because inside the grooves are thin, raised scattered lines that may result from debris falling into the die, damaging the die, and then transferring the impressions to subsequent coins.

The coin is of no added value but as I study errors, I am intrigued by some of the coins I find in rolled coins. For now, I have no clear answer for this coin and I leave it questionable and for further study.

If you have not already done so, you need to join CONECA, you will be surrounded by a dedicated bunch of error collectors and researchers like yourself. Our Longstrider is a prominent member of the group and has published numerous articles about VAMs.
