Is This Error Caused By Die Damage?

I find the marks on the obverse not the reverse.

Maybe that is why most call heads more than tails. But kidding aside. The bag does not favor one side over the other.

I refer to it as a bag mark. Or a hit from a coin that has a reeded edge. Thanks, Doug.

I'm thinking die abrasion would have this effect. Thanks, Doug.

I am quite impressed that you know the equipment being used at each mint, per year!

That leads naturally to the question: how common is a misaligned anvil die?

Inquiring minds would like to know more about the Denver 2000 die setup. Might want to update Mike Diamond as needed. Thanks, Doug.

Rocky Are you saying your 1972 P and or Silvio think Clwang's 1972 S are the same die pair? Thanks, Doug.

Looks interesting. Is the weight and diameter within specs? Thanks, Doug.

Also meant to inquire about the flip side. Does it look the same as this?

I found these cents in a roll from the bank and haven't found any sense. What type of error is this?

Did you find more than one? Looks like a die chip / error. If it depresses then most likely a plating issue. Thanks, Doug.

makecents - interesting observation. I currently don't see an example of liberty showing under Wexler's WDDO-005. Maybe I missed it.

I do see the slope on B and R on WMDO-001, as well as WDDO-009, WDDO-014, WDDO-018. Note many listings start to finish do not include liberty as markers. Thanks, Doug.

Coins rubbed with mercury will have a bright shiny mirror-like finish. How do I know? Friend's dad showed us how to make our steel LWCs look like new again back in the early '70s.

Are you suggesting they would look the same today? Thanks, Doug.

What do you suppose they plated it with? I doesn't look like silver. Al maybe? Zinc...but why, lol. I thought it looked kinda zinc-y.

Hard to tell, but you might add rub with mercury to the list. Thanks, Doug.

So how would the piece get under the planchet?

Did it? Food for thought. Timeline of the inverted die setup. Thanks, Doug.

Seems altered after strike. Maybe fine grain sand blast or rock tumbler. Thanks, Doug.

If a coin flip (orientation), I'd think approximate CW 50 - 55 rotation. Thanks, Doug.

With current images, I'm thinking both coins seem to have been altered after strike. Thanks, Doug.
