I thought this was unusual but maybe it isn't. I see a second profile of the indian princess' bust about in the middle of the cheek.

1. Is this unusual?
2. Am I just seeing things?
3. How did this happen if this was struck in collar?

Thanks!

I see it. It's kind of creepy.

I don't know how to explain it, though.

That's crazy. It would be one heck of a coincidence if that was made from nicks and stains on the coin.
My biggest fear is that when I die my wife will sell all my coins for what I told her I paid for them.

Working on Whitman Large Cent date set album 1793-1857 (57 holes filled of 64 total) now come the "toughies" - yikes!

Was that pic taken in any sort of holder? All I can think of is a reflection.

Cool coin if it's not a reflection.

The human eye tends to see patterns where none exist. This is simply random marks on the coin.

Man, that is a scary looking coin. I can't see that as an accident. I'd guess slab plastic reflection, too.

Do you see the reflection only in your picture or do you also see it when looking directly at the slab in hand?

There's a LOT of space between those images, too.

Is this a coin you have in hand?

Agree, just coincidental random marks.

This is a coin that was offered for auction yesterday. It went for $54 and I should have bought it.

I did find something of interest:

Surface Film Transfer. It's near the end of this page:

It might just explain it but, I guess we'll never know. It's an interesting read, though, as usual.
