Look at that die clash under his chin!! Best one I have seen! What do you think its value is?









My name is Devin, and I have been collecting now for around 3 1/2 years. I love all US coinage. I set up at coin shows and sell on eBay with my dad

There's a neat variety on the 1918-S where this clash has been removed by overzealous die polishing resulting in a so called "drooping chin" variety. Most of the jaw is missing on those coins.

From where I sit, I don't think so. But others may chime in.

Those are calles die flow lines, as the die deteriorates, it presents as radial lines from outward metal flow

The area circled on the 29 S are very heavy die flowlines from a severely worn die. You can also see severe die wear at the top of the neck between the braid and the jaw, and at 1:00 by the rim left of LIBERTY.
