I don't collect or use the Haxby system. You are speaking Greek to me. I can't tell about the "I" but it's not right.

It looks to me like a shaving from a previous planchet was caught in the "I" and then plastered it on the next planchet where it stuck.

Don, your attribution of PC59-36a1 (36a + E37a) is right on. The extra metal on the I is puzzling. I can't see it being a cud. But, I don't think Okie's explanation works, either. If the extra metal was from a stray flake that got struck onto the I when the coin was struck, it seems to me the straight sides of the I in the die would have shaved the portions at the side off (or at least greatly flattened them). In fact, the side portions are raised and protrude outward from the sides of the I.

I think that the flake/shaving was inside the I of the working die when it struck the next coin. Bottom of the die would equal the top, most raised part of the letter.

I may be wrong but I believe it is just some damage...it looks incused and pushing out to the top of the I, it would make sense considering the other damage.
feel free to call me Will. I'm a 19 year old collector from the GTA area of Ontario.

my PMs are always open, whether you have a question or simply wish to talk.

Okie, it seems to me that if the "flake" was entirely inside the I, then there would be no extra material showing at the sides. If the flake sat across the I, then the parts at the sides would either be sheared off or at least mashed down when the coin was struck. That isn't what we see.

You need to see a huge splitting d/c at leaf 7 ..and another d/c at leaf 11...

This is a late DP #4 ..note the RP 5 in the date also..

Notice how all of the obverse beads are joined together by a crack from bead to bead..
