@Coop. Ya later last night I got a better view of it and your completely correct it was md. Thanks for your two cents worth.
1. When you say a screen shot what do you mean? Screen shot of the photo that's on my phone that I took already? 2. Trust me I do go check variety vista, I check wexler and anywhere else I can before I come here. You guys are the last stop. Only one or two people on these are of any help honestly. I'm not new, by any means I been collecting and finding errors for 2 decades. I send so many into wexler that I figured I'd come here get opinions to try to save a couple bucks. I come here to get educated, was told their is some very experienced collectors here that can educate me on things I don't know. I see every kind of doubling that has been listed. It's a lot of info so now and then I come here to get opinions and if I disagree it's like that's a sin. Sorry but show me how I'm wrong, it's why I'm here. The newbie stuff your sending me to go look at was a life time ago of learning I get all that. Last, that was most foolish thing I've heard all day. I've sent my fare share of coins in to have been new doubles to wexler never even new about variety vista till couple months ago and still they didn't have the coins listed neither. New errors are found everyday. How do you think any of these errors are found? People like myself that spend a pretty fair amount of time looking threw thousands of coins. If I tell you something is off it's not the normal things you see everyday. But thanks for your two cents and idea on photos. I'll make sure I fix that up.
Well gotta disagree, learning how to use the new scope maybe these pics will help. As you'll be able to see the device with the R is not reduced in size, the area in question is as thick as the the top part of the R. The M I agree does have damage and you can see where the damage to the M is moved to but does not account for the part in the center or the left side of the M being taller than the the far right of the M. Seen one of the poles at the stairs is also doubled, pole is not reduced in size so would count out md right? Then Lincoln is a bubbly mess. So maybe that helps?
Progressive design transfer. See that's why I come here. How's that even possible to happen on only half the roof? I've read so much on the dies and from what I understand it should have push type doubling then shouldn't it? Not double die that smooshed look you see on deteriorating dies? The cheek thing ok that makes sense the eye brow one let me try for a better pic.
Figured I'd ask here. Seems to be worlds best minds of coin errors and I appreciate you guys helping us newbies out. Sincerely. So on the obverse the face is what caught me off. His cheek bone is just off is best way to describe it. Then moved to the eye nose area and it's like his eyebrow lump is lower and then the standard location. It's hard to explain. Moved to reverse. The dang roof half way down the coin elevates and has another half of roof on the dang thing. It even has the design in it. Anyone seen such a thing?
So I can't find any info what these things are. I see them on the top of the L in Liberty. But on the top of the L will be what I call spikes. It'll have a small spike on top of or below a letter. Like the one in the photo. Ive seen them before but no idea where. Sorry it's prolly a stupid easy question I just would love to know.
So going through same 1955-D Bu rolls and same letter different spike location. And removed the word Nipple.
I did best I can with photo of the curve by the pole by the steps even drew it out for you. Normal vs the curve. Then did my best on showing depth of the idk did they ever use a drumel or grind out parts of a coin? It's what it looks like then pressed it. And the G is much larger then normal. And nothing on the other side of the coin could of made any impressions of any shapes so nothing struck threw. It weighs 3.11
Ya I'll take more pics. It's super incuse like 1/4 way threw the coin. It's super hard to photo due to the light reflecting so bright. And the pole or pillar at the start of the stairs one sec I'll get you guys good photos if I can
So this one has a neat reverse. The pillar that's at the steps normally has the wall that goes up straight to the top step. This for some reason the wall comes down then curves like a river around the pillar? Ok strange. Then you got this spot that seems like it's been grinned out then stamped or god knows what and you can still the G of the FG and at the right angle it's like you can see old building or something? Anyone seen anything like this?
How interesting. Guess that's why they call you the wizard. Never in a million years would I have thought and machine doubling under the first press. Genious and seriously answers every question I would of had. Thanks Coop for the education.
That was my thought Nick. But what I'm trying to understand is some of it wouldn't cause all like 3 different things going on. Like silviosi had said would make sense on some of the lettering having that paste under the letters causing them to wipe off persay. Then you have obvious machine doubling going on. Ok I get it some of it is I think where it caught parts of the letters off which causes the device to be thinner then it should be. But neither explains the U in trust. Or that R where it has an entirely separate straight leg protruding or the B with identical impressions or the front of the B having only a small fraction of the humps doubling and the center of the B having a much larger spread. So that's why going with MD just don't fit. To me atleast
