No maybe it's a scratched or dented die. It's not a T.D. sorry about our last conversation, I get carried away sometimes. Here's a Trail Die, notice the trails begin at the devices.

I feel this might be a trail die. Note the star? Tow lines coming off the two points there. The other ones look like trail lines also. There is a contact mark on the field. But the lines I feel are a legit trail die.

Now that you mention it, I agree, two sets with different offsets.

It's a Trail Die. Note how it goes across diagonally agross the affected letters. Great find. :)

I do appreciate it! Does it seem weird the the top of the letters look to move north,while the bottom looks to move south?

I can definitely say it's the weirdest Trail Die I've ever seen. This one is very interesting.

Not sure,I have a lot of coins I put into the "lines" stack. Some maybe trail die's,some maybe die gouges ,etc! I'm also working on a hypothesis about some "lines" that are just polished out die clashes. I think I have some good evidence,But with everything happening right now I just want to look at coins and post some I think are cool or have questions about!
