Just a good old vise job. I wonder why these seem so common?


Because they are trying to mimic what they think is an actual mint die error called a "counter-brockage" where two separate errors are occurring making different impressions which may appear inverted as this example from
http://www.error-ref.com:





Quote:
A brockaged coin and normal coin, side by side. If a planchet were to be fed on top of and straddle both coins, the resulting error would present a first-strike brockage and a first-strike counterbrockage next to each other on its reverse face.
6) A brockaged coin is struck into another brockaged coin, with the two brockages facing each other.
Each coin will carry a counterbrockage of the other. Where the brockages are in direct contact, the counterbrockage will overlie the brockage. This thought-provoking combination has not been encountered.
7) A brockaged coin is struck a second time, off-center. Then a planchet is struck into it.
The coin that results will have a brockage side-by-side with a counterbrockage. This error has not been encountered.
Permutations: The brockage could be on the obverse face or the reverse face. The planchet would respectively rest on top of, or beneath, the brockage.
8) A coin receives a second, off-center strike while overlapped by another coin. Then a planchet is struck into it.

The second, off-center strike leaves a brockage on the part of the coin that was in direct contact with the second coin. The image below shows such an error, a double-struck 1972-D nickel with a first-strike brockage of the obverse design on the reverse face of the second strike.

If a fresh planchet were to be fed beneath this double-struck coin (or if this coin was fed on top of a planchet), the result would be a coin with a brockage and a counterbrockage that lie side-by-side. Some brockaged elements would likely persist within the counterbrockage. This error type has not been encountered.

Maybe the seller knew it wasn't real and just sent it out for slabbing hoping it would get lost in the mail


You really think that? There are more sure ways to do Postal Fraud than that which would work 100%, Kanga. Sheesh

Swedish coins always get my attention, I'm half Swede myself. That's a good size silver coin, I collect large ones like those, nice! Here's some specifics on your coin.

Looks acid eaten, that would explain a bit of loss, I don.t get hung up unless .4gr difference, then may have a thin or split planchet.

You have used the same file ref # for a pix previously uploaded that is why. Relabel your planchet pix and reload it.

Specifically what type of "green" corrosion, verdigris or bronze disease? Gooey or powdery? Smooth surface or rough and pitted?

Pix may be helpful.

It is just an indention, caused by something moving downward while pressing into the thin plating outlining the face. Sure didn't come that way from the mint.

Why not go ahead and "send it in"?....

Shadows on the edge aren't doubled dies, shadows on the device may be.

What do you want to know? They are US Large cents, in from the dates issued. The upper 1837(?) looks in about a G-4 Corrosion(green crud, verdigris) the other is an AG/G Harshly cleaned, maybe even chemically dipped, considered damaged by most collectors. What else? Worth a couple bucks apiece.

Hard Times Token HT #294, This has no wreath on the back, distinguishes it from 3 other types, is not considered a rarity among this series, and in your condition is worth very little, maybe a $2 bill is all, it has enough to be IDed that's about it.





This was a period in US history 1833-1844 where the banking and financial systems were in flux, a depression was going on, Jacksonian politics screwed really messed up the monetary systems, low value cash/coins were scarce so manufacturers began issuing tokens for goods or services rendered. Once the Gubmint finally got it's (oops) together, and coinage began keeping up with the need, these tokens faded away. An interesting series of coinage to collect, fascinating history...real American History, not the pablum of today!

Proto-rim caused by extreme die wear. Metal flows outward on the die, forcing metal to move outwards causing this. NOT an error, normal on dies used too long before replacement!
