Look at the wheats on this one . At first I thought it was struck through grease but it looks like die chips are in both stems in the flattened area. Not sure what it is?

There is definitely a die chip on the left wheat ear. The upper parts could certainly have been influenced by a grease strike-through.

I see a lot of die flow on the reverse so, maybe LDS or VLDS has something to do with it.

Couple things going on 1) PIDT Passive indirect transfer of the bust image to the reverse, multiple poundings do this to the reverse dies. 2) Grease filled on left wheat stalk, polishing to maintain use 3) die cip on left stalk. Anything else?

It is extreme Die deterioration, look at the line radiating outwadrd all over, the stretching of details, there is very little depth left in the detail, die face has been polished down so far...way over-used die.

Even has a Poorman's DD somewhat, makes a nice hole filler in a Whitman album!
