I was just finishing my last roll of the box and I found this coin. I have never seen anything like it but I'm sure someone here knows what it is. I think it's a 2006 but you can't really tell. The coin is brand new.

Struck through error. (Grease) That one is a keeper. I've got one that tops that one though.

Some have asked about my images I use and I'm glad to say, I've completed an Educational DVD of these. Become a supporter of this site, send me your address and I will send you a DVD. Many have loved this so far. I just completed version 11. The most updated version yet. So if you haven't got a copy yet, it is a good time to do so. I also have a DVD and one for windows media player. The one for media player is nice for your computer as it is clearer in images. Let me know which you would prefer. If you are a new member and wish the DVD, make your donation and have them pass on to me where you would like this shipped. Most have really appreciated this to increase the coin knowledge. Thanks for your support!

Why would the reverse be affected this way....from a insufficient pressure?

Very nice find. There are some out there that are practically blank because of the die fill.

That is a nice clogged die example because both sides are affected A very weak strike would not only affect the design detail but the rims as well, leaving them weak and rounded. Heavy grease strikes tend to have well-formed rims because the metal that cannot expand into the clogged die detail has to go somewhere so it flows outward to the periphery
